As I wrote once in a college essay, a sport is a physical contest of wills, a game is something you can enjoy with beer and the occasional smoke.

Chess is a sport and so are eSports. Certainly a contest of wills though.

Sports are competitive games played by hardcore players to win money.

What the fuck are you on about? Spiritual accomplishment? Put the crack pipe down and take two steps back.

I like this definition of a game:

Wikipedia Wrote:Computer game designer Chris Crawford, founder of The Journal of Computer Game Design, has attempted to define the term game[8] using a series of dichotomies:

Creative expression is art if made for its own beauty, and entertainment if made for money.
A piece of entertainment is a plaything if it is interactive. Movies and books are cited as examples of non-interactive entertainment.
If no goals are associated with a plaything, it is a toy. (Crawford notes that by his definition, (a) a toy can become a game element if the player makes up rules, and (b) The Sims and SimCity are toys, not games.) If it has goals, a plaything is a challenge.
If a challenge has no "active agent against whom you compete," it is a puzzle; if there is one, it is a conflict. (Crawford admits that this is a subjective test. Video games with noticeably algorithmic artificial intelligence can be played as puzzles; these include the patterns used to evade ghosts in Pac-Man.)
Finally, if the player can only outperform the opponent, but not attack them to interfere with their performance, the conflict is a competition. (Competitions include racing and figure skating.) However, if attacks are allowed, then the conflict qualifies as a game.

It's actually a kind of triathlon. The next part of the competition is getting fatally kicked in the nuts for posting too many nonsensical threads after only just joining.

Hurling.  And if you think this isn't a sport, try it once.  I played semi-pro rugby for a couple of years, and this game wore ME out.





There's also Competitive Ferret Skinning, but I was unable to find a video.
