A guy I know defines sport as a physical/athletic competion that has an an offensive and a defensive component. 

So with that defintion...

Track & field, swimming, golf, gymnastics, bowling, archery and a crap ton Olympic events.. not sports.

One of my classes in college had a whole section on this, there's actually three "pillars" that must be met to make an activity...a sport.

Not true - I am an excellent defensive archer, although I had to retire after sustaining too many puncture wounds.
