If synchronized swimming is still considered a real sport I have no problem with synchronized camping being included too

Dude, you ever try to synchronize swim? That **** is no joke.


I have no issues with someone calling eSports an actual sport. To me though, they're just competitions.

That's basically my opinion of every sport. Organized competition, or perhaps exhibition in some cases, of a quantifiable skill. Be it curling or chess or downhill bobsledding the important part is you're demonstrating a cultivated skill.

Not a sport since it takes like no physical effort.

We just keep doing the wrong thing until it turns out right.
