WHats a unheard of sport

WHats a unheard of sport
a real one, I probably never heard of..

I do not consider Soccer a sport. It is a game. and it is a professional game played by athletes, but it is not a sport.
Football, americanskii, is a sport, but it isn't a game. likewise played by athletes.

Therefor,
since rugby and soccer and basketball are the only real team sports I can think of I am searching for others.

cricket and baseball do not qualify, despite the involvement of regulations, athletes and a field.

volley ball is a sport.. But I am looking for something exotic, foreign, rare, potentially new...
baffle me

No clue what you just said, but if I ever invaded St. Maarten or some other such country, I might create a league for American-style football that doesnn't have the 4-down limit, and awards 1 point for a touchdown and nine points for a conversion (totalling 10).

Define "sport"
Define "game"

You seem to have completely arbitrary definitions for these two words. Until you clear this up, I choose not to engage in this farce. Indubitably
"There remain four irreducible objections to religious faith: that it wholly misrepresents the origins of man and the cosmos, that because of this original error it manages to combine the maximum servility with the maximum of solipsism, that it is both the result and the cause of dangerous sexual repression, and that it is ultimately grounded on wish-thinking." ~Christopher Hitchens, god is not Great

Bella morte. you wanna bank on it?

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.

fight an Odinist about it.
+it is a perplexing experience

American football is not a material experience. Or your head is not in the game. and your out of personal experiences are an element of spirituality in actuality. the experience demands it of you, and you're simply dressed and on the field otherwise. IN soccer your not playing if your in your head.

fools, monkeys and unsportsmanlike players do get paid to participate.
