  • Re: DDY OFFICIAL CFB TIERS

    Minnesota deserves at least tier 2 status in the B1G. They have, what, 7 NC? That qualifies as a tier 2 at least, even though they've been dormant. A Petersen-level coach could quickly bring them to national relevance.

  • Re: Whats your crowning athletic achievement?

    I was the MVP of the Seattle Elite League 14u playoffs, which my team won.
    Baseball isn't a sport.
    It is more of a sport than ultimate, cross country, pool, bowling, cheerleading, golf, chess, fencing and quidditch, among others, and it definitely takes more skill.

    Now, I will be the first to admit that baseball does not require tons of athleticism. But it takes a lot of skill and hand-eye coordination to hit an 85-mph fastball, when you have .45 of a second to react. And I would also point out that you have to be incredibly tough to play the sport, although it isn't as bad as rugby or football or hockey or lacrosse or any full-contact sport.
    lol - did you just compare your glory sport to cheerleading , pool and chess?

    Among others, I mean.

    No, I listed a bunch of "sports" that are less of a sport than baseball.

    My point was that if you say baseball isn't a sport, then none of those can be called a sport.
    Cheerleading, pool, and chess have never been labeled as a sport. Curling is more of sport than baseball.
    That's not remotely close to true. Cheerleading, pool, and chess are all generally recognized as sports.
    In general, a sport is a game of skill or strategy played by one or more persons in competition against an opposing team, which defines chess and pool as sports. Cheerleading is more of an athletic activity under that definition, but because it's not easy, many call it a sport.
