Do you think of curling as a sport or a game?

what is the difrence between sport and game, besides that sport can also be used for preformance, shooting, fighting and whatever else that get to the olympics or have some kind of "cup" to take?

I see it as both really. Just as I see football as a game mostly, but also sport.

My grandfather was on a curling team in Ontario. I think it's a sport. I think if you can sweat while doing it, it's a sport.
Some people I play pool with consider pool a sport. That's just silly.. it's just an easy way to make money. :D

My definition is that a sport has some element of exertion, so I suppose curling is borderline as the sweepers (not sure whether that's the right term) are definitely doing something physical.

The person pushing the stone (?) are definitely not as they are just gliding but as they are likely to be sweeping for someone else, then maybe it could be a sort of sport.
