Do sports like NASCAR, Golf, and Horse Racing qualify as real sports?
I don't like golf, but it does. Horse racing, absolutely not. Nascar, I don't think so.
Any activity that uses structured and commonly agreed upon rules that competes two or more people against each other where the determining factor is skill rather than luck is a sport. Ergo, horse racing is a sport for the jockeys, but it isn't a sport for the people who merely gamble on it.
try racing a car around a track doing up to 200mph with 42 other drivers trying to beat you and then you will have your answer. if you think playing baseball or soccer is exhausting, racing would blow your mind.
I do agree that they are a sport....but I don't know if they belong in the Olympics...but then again, I don't think Curling would qualify either....

Two horses, including the favourite, had to be put down after the Grand National on Saturday. Several more horses and jockeys were injured. I know there is a lot of tradition around this race, but is it time to put a stop to it?http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article … perts.html

I am a big fan of TVG. Maybe down the line I may publish a hub about it. Just trying to get everyone's thoughts about the coverage on TVG.
