Is Poker a Sport?

My feeling is, anything you can do while sitting down and drinking beer is NOT…but that would also eliminate arm-wrestling, and I don’t think I want to argue with those guys.

ESPN likes to at least pretend it is. Tonight begins the broadcast of The World Series of Poker’s Main Event, the first two hours of twelve, and something I look forward to all summer. This year, for the first time, I’ve actually managed to avoid learning in advance who won (the event itself is long over), so I can find out as it unfolds. Commentators Lon McEarchern and Norm Chad are very entertaining, and the show is well-edited, capturing the fun moments and leaving out all the boring hours.

I’ll be watching!
