Is Chess really a sport?

Well, years ago a deaf sports leader from Great
Britain contacted DeafDigest Sports editor wanting
some information about an American deaf athlete.

DeafDigest Sports editor knew that deaf person
but he was not an athlete. The British man insisted
that he was that great an athlete.

Puzzled, DeafDigest Sports editor suddenly remembered
that he was a pretty good chess player!

So, chess really a sport? No, but a greaet mental
game, yes!
