It was the only thing that came to mind at the time. I just finished a chapter in revising for the photoelectric effect. Give me a break. >_>

Paintball is better.

And a game, not a sport.

1) It has a set of rules and regulations
2) There are frequent tournaments and championships
3) It can be physically and psychologically demanding.
4) The above is all you need to classify it as a sport.

Hence, it's a sport.

Hence, Halo is a sport.

Texas Hold'em and Halo are not physically demanding. However, Paintball is a Sport. Requires team work, physical exercise. How can you not classify it as a sport? That's dumb. And like saying Basketball is not a sport for no reason. Dhampy you are silly.

Halo is considered a sport because it is psychologically demanding, and is moderated by officials (or the game's engine in this case). There are rules and regulations, and there are tournaments. And it's endorsed by ESPN.

I personally don't think it should be, but there we are. It's like Chess being branded a sport.

Whoever says Halo is a sport is also silly.

1. competitive physical activity: an individual or group competitive activity involving physical exertion or skill, governed by rules, and sometimes engaged in professionally (often used in the plural)

Pretty much everywhere I am looking...it says it has something to do with physical activity.

Texas Hold'Em is pretty physically demanding for ordinary folks. You try sitting in one place for endless hours.

There's professional paintball teams?

To me, for something to be considered a sport, there needs to be a successful professional league from which rules are governed. I.E.- the NFL, the NBA, major league baseball, the NHL, etc.
