    I know this comes down to what the survey said.. but still... Gymnastics isn't a sport.

    Neither is track and field, then.


    Both are considered Olympic sports.

    And since Lowie is on, I assume he's already pm'd his answer. I'm willing to give zacparis his 24 hours to get his answer in; if he doesn't, then I'm replacing him for this round with an alternate.

    Track and field has a subjective scoring system of farther or better. Gymnastics does not. I know people consider it a sport, I just consider them wrong.

    So by that reckoning you'd say chess was a sport?

    I'd say a definition for sport would require that it be a test of physical strength and/or skill, as well as objectively scored.

    Chess fails on the first part, gymastics on the second.

    There was quite a good thread in the Arena where we discussed the definition of sport. I don't think we reached a consensus lol

    Incidentally, this is also why I generally figure boxing is only a sport in the case of a knock-out. Where it doesn't go to the judges.

    We should focus on winning this.

    I'd like to see you tell Jack Johnson, Gene Tunney, and Jake LaMotta that they weren't sportsmen a large percentage of the time.

    I think we're gonna need an alternate for zac. He hasn't logged in for a few days.

    Agreed. I was giving him the benefit of the doubt, but I know he logged into his Xbox Live account yesterday and the Mrs. sent him a message to check in here, so he's out for this round. Maulfly is his replacement.

    The Score is [hl=darkblue]JEDI MIND TRICKS[/hl] 88, [hl=black]Literati[/hl] 0


    For this question, we surveyed 100 Americans. The top five answers are on the board ...

    Name a role that Harrison Ford played

    Lowbacca: Han Solo!

    Show us ... Han Solo

    1. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    2. Han Solo[hl=gold]___[/hl] 33
    3. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    4. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    5. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]

    Good, but not #1. Door is open for JEDI MIND TRICKS ...

    Maulfly: How about Jack Ryan?


    1. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    2. Han Solo[hl=gold]___[/hl] 33
    3. Jack Ryan[hl=gold]__[/hl] 13
    4. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]
    5. [hl=gold]___________[/hl]

    Bank Value: 46

    Good, but not enough to take control from Literati, who grab the board again.

    Drago: Name a role that Harrison Ford played

    My logic was this.... it would be extremely embarassing if Han Solo ended up being the top answer and I hadn't said it on a Star Wars board. And I knew it'd have to be top two.

    The better question is: who's jack ryan?

    Jack Ryan is from the Tom Clancy novels ... Patriot Games, Hunt for Red October, Clear and Present Danger ...

    I doubt we'll be able to steal this one, guys. I can think of 4 more roles off the top of my head, and I know for certain 3 will be on the list... :(
