what is the difference between a Game and a Sport? it isn't athletes, rules, setting, money or physical expenditure. It's the parameters of the task.
what does a sport have that a game doesn't, or what a sport has that a game doesn't. that is what we are looking at.

game = material accomplishment
sport = spiritual accomplishment.

Well that's just a load of horseshit.

Try again. With words that mean things.

I do enjoy Formla1 and GP racing.

Also, worlds strongest man competitions are entertaining to me in the way reality shows are entertaining.

And those crazy Highlander Games, too. Tossing poles and axing logs and climbing poles.

In NZ it's called foreplay.

Just for reference:

Soccer derives from Association Football, via public schools (probably Eton, or more likely Rugby), just as Rugby Football became 'rugger'.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

As to the OP, if there is "a unheard of sport", I haven't heard of it.
