I just wanted an all purpose sports thread. I will start out with a couple of questions. Is anyone else exited about the World Cup? Does anyone know where the U.S. Open golf tournament will be held?

Golf is NOT a sport.

Football (or soccer) is being discussed in this thread:

Would that not include The World Cup?

I don't know much about golf though. Been watching the NBA and NHL finals! NHL is a massacre, but NBA is pretty intense right now

Golf is a sport. It's a competitive physical activity. Bowling is also a sport. They are also my two favorite sports because you don't have to touch people or get hurt.

I think I can agree with you, exept for one thing. You can get hurt while bowling. Have you seen the movie Kingpin? That guy had his hand chopped off in the ball return. Plus, I think you can drop the ball on your foot, if you are not too careful.

In your defense, I must say that golf involves little activity. Usually just a lot of elderly overweight people that ride golf carts to their destination. No running is involved; however, golf actually has it's own channel and it has been considered for a spot in the summer olympics> I think that qualifies as a sport.

BTW, when is the kings game in the NHL? Is it this weekend? I just want to watch it on tv.

That's interesting. I get to watch the King's game tomorrow and the MLB All-Star game on Sunday. The question is, what will I watch on Saturday?

I did not think you would be back on segabits, pcm92. I miss all of your humorous posts. I do have to disagree with you on this one. Golf is not or has never been part of the olympics. There are some people who are not overweight or old that play golf, even though it's not my type of game. It's the most ridiculous game (if you call it that) in the world. It used to be open to only protestants, and now it is only open to people with tacky clothing.

About baseball, I must admit that I am a Braves fan. Sorry JohnOfRage.

That is also a stereotype of golfers. I don't wear tacky clothes. I'm not overweight. I am not really that old. I go to the driving range every week. No. It's not the most ridiculous SPORT, - not game - I think that belongs to curling. I'm sure a lot of people would disagree with that too. You're initial debate was that this thread should have never been made. You just posted something about one of your favorite baseball teams.Let's just get back to the topic of who is liking which sport and which team is better. Ok?

Curling is an olympic sport. Golf is not. I like curling. I also like this thread. I never said this thread was horrible. I was just suggesting that football was being discussed in another thread and that I was not sure if golf was actually a sport or not. I will agree with you that both hockey and baseball are great sports. I know it was just an opinion. Saying that curling is a ridiculous sport, is not true though. Perhaps you just thought it was rather unusual. It is very similar to a game of shuffleboard. Everyone likes that game, right?

I'm fine with golf/bowling being a sport as I then get to count dota 2 as a sport and I love pro-dota2.
