Games and Activities Labeled as a "Sport" that Shouldn't Be

THC13
I know a lot of sports are games but not all games are a sport. I believe too many games, activities and hobbies are falsely labeled a sport nowadays.

The Top Ten

1 Skateboarding

I have skating at #1 because it's personal. Skating is an art; self expression not a sport. It wasn't about being the best, it wasn't about competition. I know the corporations (Rockstar, ESPN-Disney, MTV, etc.) that exploit skateboarding for financial gains sell it to you as a sport but it's not. - THC13

2 Spelling Bee

Really ESPN? I respect and appreciate it but it's not a sport. - THC13

3 Hunting/Fishing Hunting/Fishing

Hunting and fishing are a hobby and for survival. It is not a sport. - THC13

4 Gaming

Gaming is just that...games. - THC13

5 Poker

I do like to play but it's a game not a sport. Crazy 8's and Go Fish aren't sports so why is Poker a sport? - THC13

6 Billiards

I love playing pool. I grew up with a pool table and still love playing to this day. But it's a game not a sport. - THC13

7 Darts

Fun game but not a sport. - THC13

8 Paint Ball Paint Ball

Grow men and women playing like children, not a sport. - THC13

9 Curling

Sweeping the floor is not a sport. - THC13

10 Ping Pong

Probably the most arguable on the list. Overall I see it as a game. - THC13
