Fat dudes can f***ing lift sometimes.
When I was in highschool there was this ungodly fat mexican kid in our weight training class and he could leg press every single weight we had for the machine, some 800+ pounds.

With this logic, auto racing is not a sport. Pretty sure that is a sport.


Auto racing is very physically demanding, regardless of what a casual sports fan might think. For the most part, obese people would have trouble making it through half of a professional race.


Obese people have a problem making it through half of anything, unless it's a donut.

I'm fascinated when something requires large amounts of both physical and mental discipline.

I don't see that with videogames.

If Videogames are a sport, then professional poker is also a sport.

why does it matter what's considered a sport or not? do people enjoy reducing everything in life to one of categories and semantics?

Actually, fatter people deal with high G-forces better than thinner people. Although the average obese person has heart trouble.
