Things That Bother Me

Justin June 6, 2008 0

It’s going to be a big weekend for what I like to call “not-sports”.

We have the Belmont Stakes, The Stihl Timbersports Championships and Nascar. We’re also a week removed from the National Spelling Bee and the World Series of Poker is apparently ongoing.

Just because something can be gambled on, it doesn’t make it a sport. Just because something appears on ESPN, it doesn’t make it a sport.

After the jump, a closer look at how these events should really be categorized…

National Spelling Bee = homework

Timbersports Championships = chores

WSOP = way for old men to stay social

Nascar = commuting

Horse racing = Way to inform the colonists that the Tories are coming.
