yes, golf is in there with darts and pool/billiards, does require muscle memory if not endurance, so athletes all in those SPORTS

But maybe not watching it in TV

What about a cyclist? If the bike breaks isn't he done too?

Unless you are wrestling or racing barefoot just about every sport has a prop that can fail and take the competitor out of the competition.

I can kind of go either way on it. But for example I don't think I would have the physical endurance or muscle memory to sit in a hot Nascar car for hours on end and win very many races. Heck, I can’t even watch it that long.

So basically you were posting to state that as your opinion, that your opinion was correct, and that everyone not in agreement can suck it. Next time try leading with that.
