Nice Move

Good news: you can now tell that girl who tried to tell you cheerleading is a sport that it is, in fact, not. Reddit conducted a recent poll, which asked people to label certain events as sports or not. Here are the results:

You may have noticed football, baseball, basketball, hockey, and soccer are missing from this chart, because no one questions their legitimacy as real sports. However, a few other things jumped out to me from these results.

1. More people consider cheerleading a sport than they do hunting or fishing, which is just an absolute lie.

2. An astounding 80 percent of people surveyed think ultimate frisbee is a sport. That’s higher than curling, table tennis, weightlifting, archery, ice dancing, and sailing–which are all Olympic sports.

3. There is a big discrepancy when it comes to F1 racing and NASCAR, where more people consider F1 a sport than they do NASCAR. They are literally the same thing.

4. Zero percent of people surveyed consider CrossFit a sport. Thank God.

I love that some people consider poker to be a sport. This reminds me of one of my favorite Daniel Tosh jokes: “Poker’s a sport? Then put it in the Olympics and you can only play with what your country is worth.” The USA would dominate every single time.
