Can sports think?

Half-formed posts, inchoate philosophies, and the germs of deep thought.

On a similar theme; is there a thinking narrator?


I think the idea makes sense from the point of view that the universe couldn't exist without sport, and therefore sport should have the same identity of humanity.

But the universe happily could.. so your point is moot. Are we not merely byproducts of a giant chemical processing plant? i.e. the universe..

Can the universe experience its entire history without sport? And there's also replication: why is it that in no movie either featuring Gene Tierney or Russell Crowe does the subject of sports being able to think occur?

Could you maybe rephrase the question?

I think that the universe would simply 'go with' so no matter what does or does not happen will still be.. say, endured or imprinted on (rather than experienced) by the universe.

And there's also replication: why is it that in no movie either featuring Gene Tierney or Russell Crowe does the subject of sports being able to think occur?

=D> nice..

That's a very precise set of factors you've given there Shelley. My answer to this is.. that it simply wasn't in the script.

The universe endures.. well it would, after billions of years of existence.

Even that which is in the script can end up on the cutting room floor.. like it never ever existed in the first place, so so-much for scripts and editing suites, and hello end-results.

A good sport may consider gracefully admitting to defeat. But sport, in and of itself, is not sentient, therefore cannot think. At least I believe it cannot speak. So, tell me if and how it does. Help me understand.

On top of everything may be this:


Sports think may have been some ultra reactionary oriental effort to destabilize Trump, namely by diversion-so that they will not think it's China's efforts, but North Korea's.

Everyone surmises group think, as in a lot of unmasked sport fans would want to groak in a packed stadium, and none thinking of consequences.

Lorians read backwards , but bag anh stretch could anyone equate that with the subliminal effects of reverse psychology.

Therefore Madison avenue's subliminal advertising may have caught up with the ancients versed in versed well in such maoist regimen, and socked it to trump, a follow up to their virally invasive biological weapon.

Why not, after all the can afford to loose a few hundred million, but the US is sadly decimating their population with abortions, contraceptives and such.

Sports don't Ithink, folks, " Think Sports" ,
Its a Connie pitch to unmask innermost feelings to get out there, just like Trump would want you to believe , that will do hum in, as well.

And that is what happened.

Who would not believe this theory now days, it seems very credible! It ain't no red herring: may dear mr. mcarthy not roll in his grave.

Shellytrokan-Bot was banned shortly after this thread was published, so don’t expect an answer anytime soon, or, well.. ever.

Nice post.. I’m sure Shelly would have approved.

Does that mean that we should be grabbing sports by the balls? What about shuttlecocks? that word always made me snicker, when a teen.

E-sports can make e-computations, but that still isn’t independent thought.. so that’s as close as sports can get, to thinking, at this present moment in time.

Therefore.. sports think?

What component/s or qualities make you qualify as sports, and what type of sports would that be.. exactly?

If you are sports, then people can play you, but you might like that far too much for participants to be comfortable with.. so is to think, to also feel?

May be what she meant was "I am a sport"...

Maybe, but unlikely, she thinks she is some mythical muse-godess like Venus sayin' I am love.


On some level, even without wrangling about general-specific content, some value can be gleaned from it, even if held to the original, unrevised. ( I am sports) -


I think sports, therefore I am ( who can live without NFL Mondays. ???

I can’t live without Polo or the Henley Boat Race, but I’ve had to start doing so this year.. both of which cannot think, but one does involve a ball.

Can I live without NFL Mondays? Yes! even though NFL, like rugby, is an enjoyable sport to watch.
