My daughter is debating this point, and I wondered what you all think.
Everything wants to be called a sport now. It's rediculous.
What's her opinion?
I have no idea, really. I push buttons on the machine at the casino and hope for the best.
She doesn't think it is, but the fact that it is covered on ESPN, etc., is a point in the other side's favor. It seems to come down to the definition of the word sport, which is actually pretty broad.
Kathianne or D: I probably should have posted this under Sports. Do you want to move it?
I've no comment on Abbey's daughter, but will say that my two sons use poker for spending money. My daughter uses it only for entertainment regarding dates.
A sport? No, it's a card game silly girl.
If it's played for money? Hell yeah.
If not? It's a waste of time.
If it was full contact, then maybe it'd be a sport.
Cheat, and I bet it turns into full contact.
