Someone is trolling so I'll bite.

I hate soccer but definitely recognize it as a sport.

World Cup is the hot topic everywhere else- supposedly the USA has a good team (I would have no idea)

Sitting in Mexico with the customers watching Mexico vs Portugal, I cannot imagine how this became popular. Chasing a ball over a field approximately 2 miles by 3 miles for what seems like a week, for a score of 1-0.

Makes baseball look exciting in comparison.

Not trolling, soccer is not a sport the same as marriage between a man and a man is not a real marriage. I have nothing against Gheys or their desire to be together but a marriage is between a man and a women and a sport requires skills other than chasing a ball around.

Do you consider running a sport/track field a sport?

I went into a huge bar/restaurant yesterday in Jacksonville and everyone was into the game, yelling and screaming every two minutes. We left.

What about tennis? After all, you're just hitting a ball back and forth.

Snowboarding is not a sport either.
It's just sledding on your feet till you crash.

NASCAR isn't a sport. It's another reason to drink beer.

By the definitions I have seen, I don't think I have ever seen a "sport". What is this mythical "sport" being mentioned? Surely it can't be football... I mean, all they do is run into each other and toss a weird shaped ball around. Can't be basketball... all they do is toss a ball at a metal ring. Probably not MMA or boxing... all they do is try to hurt each other. Hockey? Doubtful. All they do is chase a little piece of rubber around. This mythical "sport" appears to be sufficiently legendary to warrant a Discovery Channel "reality" show.
