Today I attended a rugby game. I don’t know all the rules but it is interesting to watch. I do that with some sports like hockey and of course rugby. It made me think of all the sports I have seen and heard of in my life. The question that came to mind is what makes a sport a sport?
Think about it there are sports like fencing which at one time was a way of survival and today we call it a sport. There are things like curling that makes me wonder who was the one who started that sport and what was he thinking about? Now not all sports are well known or have a large following. Some we may find boring or strange. I find Nascar to be a strange sport but I know people who will sit in front of television and watch it for hours. Some sports like golf are fun to play but to watch no much fun.
Still gets back to my original question is what makes a sport a sport?
