This. Never understood why sh*t like driving, bowling, fishing, etc. are considered sports... I can sit on my a.ss and eat doritos all damn day and still whoop a.ss in a drag race, but that wouldn't make me an athlete..
The definition of sport is "An activity involving physical exertion and skill". So even though you may not be exerting at a higher level like Football or Basketball, in order to be at the top of a given sport, you have to have skill and you have to be physically fit in order to do so. It's not like anyone can just walk up and win 24 Hours of Lemans or the Tucson Open or the Bassmaster or the World Championship of Darts.
