A Sport Must Be A Sport !

Chess is an Artsy, Sporting, Scientific War Game that involves NO physical activity to speak of, but (occasionally) generates some great thread jokes.  As per (many, but not all) contributions above.  Hear-Hear for Captain Obvious !  grin.png

Alright Captain Obvious!  Of course a sport is a sport.  Paper is paper, food is food, sex is sex.  What's your point?

 

And about your whole speel on the technicalities of what a sport is and what chess is, based on that, chess is first degree murder!  I move my Queen with intent to kill!

  ---  " Captain Obvious ", that's a nice title. I'm now a " CO ", wow I always wanted a title  rofl.

So wait just a second, Cap'n...if you're also our Commanding Officer, does that make you COCO?

Well perhaps what we need is " Dashing - Chess ". This game would be held in a sports arena and each player would need to do a lap around the track after every move. The first player to collapse from exhaustion would lose the game   lol.

   ---   We may now have a vote for the new sport of " Dashing Chess "  lol. ^ tongue.png

   ---   Wow ! That is a great title ! And so much nicer than the titles that people have been giving me over the years ( eg: Dummy, Moron, Idiot, Half-wit, Mental-midget, Dummkopf etc etc ).

 So basically I'm seeing a giant crazed parrot (on about 20 cups of coffee)...and a pigeon.

Chess will be considered a sport if it involves slapping the loser or slap each other for a draw until someone resigns.

For that matter, we will all be considered sports!
