Besides the fact that I think the demographics of people that have seen it, (I mean the age they were when they saw, not the age they are now) are at least as much above 20 as below. (now if your argument was, im not 10 yet, or I am over 75 or something, ok, those ages have been less exposed to it)
Plus people have made an existing sport out of it nowadays ( no flying necesarry...) and even so, it doesnt say in the quiz that fictional sports are excluded.
(I think it might be the same people that throw a fit when a unicorn is called an animal. Because it is fictional according to their logic it can't be an animal (yet they never say that about dragons...) well, humans in books arent humans then either, because they are made up for the story aswell, eventhough there are real versions of humans)
I love that there's a Wikipedia article on the game parenthetically entitled "Real-life Sport".
Even if it weren't played by real people in the real world, like "Parrises Squares" in Star Trek, it would still be a sport, albeit a fictional one.
i'm also wondering if various alternatives to horse racing like horse riding, equestrian, dressage, showjumping etc could be accepted - surely the rider is still known as a jockey in those?
