    Riding a goddamn motorcycle is no more a sport than driving a car. Racing motorcycles may be a sport, but none of what we do on the road is a sport.

    By that mentality...

    Fishing isn't a sport.
    Hunting isn't a sport.
    Hiking isn't a sport.

    In fact... the way most of us play "sports" isn't a sport.
    I'm definitely not risking life & limb when I go one-on-one with my brother on the basket ball court...

    Just sayin...

    Um. 'Sport' is from the French or Spanish word 'desport', "to seek diversion". Seems quite apropos here.

    Correct. By modern definition, a sport has rules and a way to keep score, and there is a "winner". Activities listed above, and riding a motorcycle, and driving a car, are just that: outdoor activities. Racing, on the other hand, has rules, a score, and a winner - and hence is a sport.

    Agreed. I get onto fishermen and hunters when they call those activities sports.

    By that definition cross stitching and gardening are a sport. Does that seem apropos?

    I was making sport of his liberal use of sport. Besides motorcycling, what other sports do you participate in? Knitting perchance?
