1. Played by teams.

2. Has an objective scoring mechanism.

3. Requires physical contact between opposing team members.

Japher
07-05-2009, 18:18:49
So, since boxing isn't played by teams it's not a sport?

Drake Tungsten
07-05-2009, 18:39:56
Nope. It's a martial art.

It also doesn't have an objective scoring mechanism.

I was pretty competitive when I was 15 at 145.

Not like wrestling in US midwest, but decent enough.

Speaking of Nebraskan Wrestlers...(Drake you may know these guys).

A couple of the top-ranked NCAA wrestlers from Nebraska State (I think that's what it's called) posed on a gay porn site for years. One of them has a tattoo on his thigh saying NEBRASKA WRESTLING. Apparently the producers of the porn site said they'd blur it out, but it was close to the "money shot" area so of course they never did.

Finally somehow the school found out (the wrestling coach probably was jerking to the site) and kicked them off the team. :b:

They still claim they're not gay, like all of TCO's gymnastics mancrushes. But they are.

Wearing a singlet is not gay. I did wrestling and gymnastics. Neither is gay. Well gym unfortunately has some gay associations, but way more on the female side (gay men with fashionista impulse). But not as bad as figure skating. And wrestling is bad ass. Lots of judo and boxing champs at Canoe U said they would never mess with 135 pound 55 yo Coach Perry. (Well so did my recruited wrestler room mate...you had to know the Shawn Taylor gleam in Perry's eye....)

Yes. The mutant one had a small cock and was ugly. I think they were a package deal, only reason they were there.

On the plus side, it's the most publicity your school has had in years. The big cocked one was very popular for a while.

No. Deadspin even referenced Lawrence Phillips (running back) beating the shit out of his ex-girlfriend (female basketball player) while Scott Frost (quarterback) watched, which is a much more infamous blackmark on Nebraska athletics.

Dan Gable and Sugar Ray Leanord locked in a room.

Outcome?

Dan Gable, no question. Would be more fair if you picked a heavier boxer, but Gable still wins.

Back to the gay athletics thing. Steve Sailor has an interesting insight about using AIDS rates as a proxy for gayness in sports. Shows you what is behind the closet. Is football hetero or closeted? Hint: look at all the gay deaths in Broadway acting...

http://isteve.blogspot.com/2002/02/surprise-many-male-figure-skaters.html

Most of the occupations you'd assume to be heavily gay, such as Broadway chorographer and fashion designer, were decimated by AIDS in the 1980s and early 1990s, as was figure skating, where both Olympic male gold medallists from the 70s died of AIDS. Diving isn't as gay as figure skating but it's a lot gayer than football or golf, and, not surprisingly, the greatest diver of all time, Greg Louganis, is HIV infected.

Professional sports outside of figure skating suffered very few AIDS cases, typically one per major sport, except for boxing, where shooting heroin is a not uncommon way for old boxers to relieve the constant pain.

AIDS is an indicator of promiscuous sexuality, gay or otherwise. Closeted professional athletes are not going to have lots of promiscuous gay sex.

Pennsylvania Student Suspended From Christian College for Gay Porn Role



GROVE CITY, Pa. A student is appealing his suspension from a Christian college in western Pennsylvania for appearing in gay porn videos using a pseudonym.

Twenty-two-year-old John Gechter, of Philadelphia, was suspended for one year pending appeal from Grove City College after a student saw him last month in a video posted online.

Gechter is appealing the suspension and says he may sue claiming that the gay porn job isn't any of the school's business, especially since he performed using the name "Vincent DeSalvo." Gechter says he used his porn income to pay for his schooling.

School officials say Gechter is suspended because Gechter was well aware his porn involvement "exhibited behavior contrary to the values" of the school about 50 miles north of Pittsburgh.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sport

Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determinant of the outcome (winning or losing), but the term is also used to include activities such as mind sports (a common name for some card games and board games with little to no element of chance) and motor sports where mental acuity or equipment quality are major factors.

out of that I really like:

Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determinant of the outcome

So darts is certainly a sport.
