We are thrilled for this opportunity to share with you our insight into activities that are or could be vaguely considered sports.  For example:  Dodgeball, a highly athletic, fast paced competition conducive to spectator appreciation; yet dodgeball has no professional representation, little or no organized amateur representation, and even my spell checker doesn't recognize it as an actual word!
Competitive darts, however, has considerably much more professional sponsorship and media coverage.  A regular industry.  This is impressive considering most of us feel that watching a dart tournament isn't even half as exciting as watching most infomercials.  It also requires about as much physical exertion as belching.
Now now, I know there is a great amount of skill and dexterity that goes into darts, but the same could also be said for goiter surgery and to the best of my knowledge, that's not considered a sport.
So many sports curiosities like the ones I just spoke of exist, and we plan to dissect them all!
