It's an insult to say golf and baseball aren't sports, and really, makes one sound like an idiot.
i agree with you here, to say golf and baseball etc arnt sports is kinda stupid, people in those sports train just as hard as MMA fighters do for there sport, it may not be as physicaly draining as MMA training is but its still ahrd training for there sport.

NASCAR is still not a sport though lol
