fat dudes can be good at curling, and that's in the olympics.


Not to mention the horse sports where a horse does all the work and a human gets the medal. Gaming has just as much right to be a sport, if not more. I'd say being great at League takes more skill than curling or training a horse.

Show jumping actually takes skill from both the horse and rider

If chess can be considered a sport, i dont see why certain video games can't also be considered. i think its pretty stupid though and would be pissed if it were included in the olympics.

I felt like Randy Marsh watching that video. There's this one episode in particular where it shows kids playing video games and to him it just looked like "WTF is going on". Would post clip if I remembered what episode it was from.

Sports can be anything as long as there's enough viewers and fans to rip off.
