Ok so kickball, and tag-football aren't sports either.

You're right, they aren't.

I think that for something to be a sport, it needs a significant establishment in the public sphere.

Football, soccer, tennis, auto racing...hundreds of millions of people watch them, play them, devote their lives to them.

Whereas something like lawn darts...

Yeah, but using that same logic would make halo a sport. <_<

I don't see why people get up-in-arms over the distinction though, just because someone thinks something is a game and not a sport doesn't mean it's a personal slight against that person.

I don't agree. Except in Asia, only small niche market audiences watch video games being played. And usually only young people. I wouldn't count on those people continuing to watch once they're no longer young.

Funyuns taste nothing like onions.

I like onions, and funyuns.

Because calling something that I enjoy very much, not a sport doesn't seem right to me. The following is this whole argument summed up.

"No Darkish, paintball is not a sport. I don't care if you've spent hundreds of dollars on equipment and whatever and you are sore for a few days after playing and it hurts when you get hit and it is physically demanding and good exercise and sociable"

"Well **** you then"

Okay, let me sum up how the argument actually went:

Guy 1: Guys I really don't think 'X' is a sport.

Guy 2: WHAT? If you don't think X is a sport, then you must not think Y is a sport! That insults me on a very personal level despite the fact that you are just giving your opinion on the subject.

Guy 1: It's just an opinion, don't take it so seriously.

Guy 2: Now I don't like you so angry words followed by cursing

Guy 1: wtf.
