Really, It Is A Sport... Really

Do you remember some of the games you used to play when you were a kid? Games like freeze tag or jump rope come to mind, at least that is what was popular when I was a kid. During lunch or on field trips though we would often play another game, a game that would determine your place in line or who got what with the winner taking his pick. This game was Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) and sometimes we would add things like dynamite or other items when we felt like cheating. Here is the kicker: did you know that this really is a sport in the USA? Grown men with their shirts off and atheletic shorts playing paper rock scissors while having a referee call the matches is a normal scene in the USARPS League. Who knew.

Experience the sport that is Rock Paper Scissors here.

Some questions:
-Do you consider this a sport?
-If it is covered by ESPN does that make it a sport?
-How would it rank on your list of "sportiness"?
-Is kickball in front of or behind RPS?

Kickball is so far in front of RPS as a sport!

I was reading here: and saw that people get injured playing this "sport". They can dislocate shoulders or sprain wrists. It said that this "sport" is physically draining!
