Nope; Not A Sport

The sports network, ESPN, has made enemies of gamers everywhere by announcing…that e-sports are not sports! Uh?

ESPN president John Skipper, speaking at a recent conference, was asked to comment e-sports and he said, "It's not a sport, it's a competition." To be fair to the man, Skipper then went on to say chess and checkers are competitions, not sports, as well but to weigh in on this, I have to say...the man is absolutely right.

Come on people, e-sport is NOT a sport. We sit on our asses playing video games. Forgot sweating, we’ll not even standing! We are NOT doing sports when we are playing games.
