Golf to have sport privilege revoked?

13 Apr

golfsport.jpgJust one day after Angel Cabrera captured the Masters, rumors are circulating that the Gaming Association of Sports is considering revoking golf’s right to call itself a sport.

“After seeing a considerably overweight individual such as Cabrera win the most prestigious championship in the game,” said Mack Dixon, G.A.S. President, “it’s clear that we need to re-assess whether or not golf is a sport. You obviously don’t need to be an athlete to win this thing.”

According to reports, G.A.S. is tinkering with the idea of slapping golf with the “game” label, rather than “sport.” This will put it in the same category as Darts, Pool and everybody’s favorite lawn game, Jarts.

“Yes, we are considering this change,” admits Dixon. “After all, what makes it any different than pool? In both games, you’re trying to get the ball in the hole. Golf just takes a little while longer.”

Update: The Max has learned that G.A.S. is also toying with the idea of revoking the sport privilege to the following “sports.” Do you think they should be considered sports?

  • Fishing
  • NASCAR
  • Archery
  • NHL

On the flip side, we are also hearing the following events may soon earn the “sports” label:

  • Beirut (aka Beer Pong)
  • Wiffle Ball
  • Marco Polo
  • Flashlight Tag
  • Rock, Paper, Scissors

Which of the below events most deserves to be called a sport?
