Not an athletic sport, but I would consider it a sport nonetheless.

We have so convoluted the definition of the word 'sport' that I don't see the point in debating the matter. It's a war over definitions and language. Who cares?

Stop making useless rules and pretending to be a mod.
"Let me tell you the truth. The truth is, 'what is'. And 'what should be' is a fantasy, a terrible terrible lie that someone gave to the people long ago. The 'what should be' never did exist, but people keep trying to live up to it. There is no 'what should be,' there is only what is." - Lenny Bruce

Does it make you sweaty, encourage the use of giant foam fingers and is anyone willing to televise it?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Too civilised for that

is anyone willing to televise it?

See presidential debates

Just imagine team coming out in coloured suits and taking centre stage. And the transfer seasons.

WTF? Debating makes you sweaty?

See presidential debates

Executive (Mayor, Governor, Prez) Debates are much different than regular debates for obvious reasons. Who wins the debate has a major impact on who wins the election, and who wins the election greatly impacts peoples' lives.

Just imagine team coming out in coloured suits and taking centre stage. And the transfer seasons.

" The New York Thinkers have just drafted Ragnar_Rahl as a rebutter from the Washington Socrates!"

Stupid.

It is quite common for NFL players (especially linemen) to purposely gain wait to increase size. Does this mean football is not a sport?

Fat people can't play sports? That's new to me.

I'm glad to see you recognized that my comment was a mere frivolity.

Anyway, no, it doesn't, because they're not getting fatter *while playing.*

Again, you don't get fatter while actually participating.

Darts.

You clearly can get fatter while playing darts, so....
