Ok, I feel you guys, but does it lend itself to the Olympics?

Let's just say that if they dropped it, not only would I not mind, I might not even notice.

But don't you love those clips in the Olympics sports wrap up packages on the news?

PING PONG of course is a sport, no doubt on it.
CHESS is a mental sport, the ''sience sport''.
GOLF of course is a sport.
NASCAR and FORMULA 1 ( i love it, and watch it when i can) are sports too. you need physical condition to drive those cars for an hour or more.

Yeah, I do, Reggie, but sometimes I think things go too far.

Growing up PP was a game, not a sport -- and I know the line is very thin defining the two (game vs. sport) but pretty soon, Monopoly will be in the Olympics.  Seems by some definitions if all you have to be in is good physical condition to do something and have it be a sport.

I was reading some months ago that those racecar drivers were hotting a quiet stink that Danica Patrick was only 100lbs and thus gains an advantage and what-not. To be Nascar is not an athletic game it's a bit mental and chance-related. IMO.
