For some ideas, I decided to look up "sports" in a reputable dictionary. I decided to check out the Merriam-Webster dictionary. I didn't really get "sports" but I did get "sport" and I was shocked to learn a couple of things:
  • sports can be really enjoyable (!)
  • writing this blog is a sport (hint: it's my source of diversion)

See the definition of sport from Merriam-Webster:[2]

I was talking to my son Justin some time ago. I told him I used to be able to do that kung fu move where you're on your back and you flip onto your feet with one push. Justin laughed his head off in disbelieve. He seriously thought I was pulling his leg! I really have to find a way to prove to him that I used to be very athletic. In fact, I was a champion runner and jumper. I need to dig up those medals from, so, so many years ago.

Yep, my kids have no idea that I was ever young. The older I get the better I was. LOL

Hey, by that definition we all play sport of some sort. Even me! I am playing at puter sport right now.
