    since all of these are shown on espn, should they still be considered sports?


    golf
    bowling
    worlds strongest man
    poker
    hunting/fishing
    nascar or race car driving
    horse racing
    rodeo
    anything from the x games

    for me, only golf and some x games stuff are "sports".

    Rodeo is not a sport? Those are the toughest sonsofbitches going. Put em up against NFL linemen any day of the week.

    Poker is not a sport. I would define a sport as an athletic competition of some sort. All of your other ones qualify, IMO.

    I consider them sports.

    There is a strange sport from Scotland - its on ice I think and you roll a thing that resembles a tea kettle across the ice and hit these colored things around.
    There doesn't appear to be a goal and I never figured out how on earth it is scored but apparently it will be in the Olympics - or maybe it is already?
    It also has a weird name.
