What?!
It sounds worse than cheerleading as a sport!!!

Extreme ironing is where its at!!!!!
Extremeeeeeee!!!!

about as much a sport as any other. It's all in the mind of the sportsman or sports follower. somewhere they'll be extreme whittling or the cross loop universe stitching title.

Somehow it has been deemed a sport.
But in my personal opinion I say NAY!
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.

Yes since it's a competition that relies on physical coordination and other physical traits that must be trained and what not. But I still voted no.
#14
uhh.... is there anything inherently athletic involved?

No.

Actually, its Sport Stacking:

edit:

"INSTRUCTORS
Start a Sport Stacking program today

PARENTS
Find out how stacking can benefit your kids"

^from the site

"We believe sport stacking helped our 14 year-old son win 2nd place at a Colorado State Classical Piano Contest..."
— Shane, father

That's a pretty good one, but this was my favourite;
"As a parent with an ADD child, I have been researching various methods of assisting my child to overcome inattentiveness."
— Michelle, mother
That is QUALITY right there.

EDIT: It's not cheap either;

No. I've tried it before (my cousin got a set for his birthday and me and my uncle were competing. I won) and it's kind of fun, but it shouldn't be called a sport.

Can you imagine the commentary?

And to go for the first record attempt of extreme ironing at 6000ft on the summit of the mountain! You can see as he irons his shirt clean by the cliff face. Dave, have you ever seen such clean ironing, its absolutely mind blowing!!

yeah, i'm bad at these things...

This pissed me off, bigtime. I sent them this:

Dear Speedstack,


I recently came across your website whilst visiting a forum; the majority of members were ridiculing you. Curiously, i clicked on the link to your page and read about speedstacks. I have a question - is this some sort of joke?


Firstly, i would like to question what sort of normally-balanced child would actually take PLEASURE in attempting to stack cups faster than one another. From a 16-year-old's point of view, i'd rather help my parents tidy the house, since at least it is productive. You may argue the nonsense that "it improves hand-eye coordination". So does learning an instrument, playing sports (excluding the excuse of speedstacks, obviously). In this technology-fuelled world, who would take delight in stacking cups?


Secondly, i would like to dispute the claim that speedstacking is a sport. In mine and many other's opinion, speedstacking is as much of a sport as furiously typing rude words into a calculator turned upside-down. It involves no physical exercise whatsoever.


Finally, i would like to enquire what your annual turnover of these cups is (if you are willing to share this information), because i think that if you are anywhere as popular as you appear to be, the world is doomed to be run by morons that sign peace treaties with rocket-propelled-grenades. My suggestion is that maybe you turn your cups upside-down and sell them with the purpose of drinking from, rather than stacking them together. In fact, you can stack them this way too, and it's more productive; after you've washed them, you stack to let the water out.


Yours faithfully,


___

I'd write an extensive reply covering all aspects of this, but I am currently too busy high altitude training in Kilimanjaro, for the upcoming Speed Monopoly championships.

It doesn't have to be physical to be a sport. There are intellectual sports, athletic sports, motor skill sports, etc.

Cup stacking is a motor skill. It can be competitive. People train to get better. There are world records.

It's a sport.

6. an object of derision; laughingstock.

I guess it is a sport, then.
