If dancing is a sport, then Golf is a fucking sport as well.

Ballet is actually super intensive, particularly for the male dancer.

I know this. A friend of mine used to be a professional competitive dancer. It was freaking insane. But I still think it was pretty stupid to be considered a "sport"..
Olympic diving is a sport. But sports that are subjective to what the judges think of your performance tick me off.

You are right. There are plenty of games that some consider a sport that are not sports. There is something that I disagree with you about though. If competitions that have judges were not sports, then that cancels out a lot of games as sports. Aerobatics, archery, arm wrestling, badminton, canoeing, cheerleading, cricket, dancing, diving, dodgeball, figure skating, fishing, martial arts, pickleball, pole vaulting, roller derby, skateboarding, skiing, snowboarding, surfing, swimming, water polo, and ultimate frisbee should no longer be sports according to you.

Some of the ones you said have objective point scoring systems. I just meant I don't like the idea of someone judging if you win or not.. That's kinda silly

I know what you mean. That is why there are multiple judges though. BTW, which ones on the list had point scoring systems?

Who did Italy play in the World Cup? Did Italy win against whoever it was?

Their last match was against Uruguay and they lost 1-0.

Ok. I haven't been keeping up with it too much this year. I know Brazil is playing Chile soon. Brazil's last opponent was Cameroon, right?

I feel bad for Greece. Costa Rica is normally such an easy team to win against.

Since the World Cup is finally going to end in a couple of weeks, perhaps we should talk about other sports to keep the thread alive. How about some tennis? Who else wants to see Novac win against Federer?

For what it's worth, I think most tennis fans (0.001% of people in the U.K. and U.S. that are tennis fans) wanted Federer to win. You should just give up on this thread. No one wants to post anything about sports unless it is the World Cup. Who cares about tennis?
