"There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway

I have heard that while this is accepted as a Hemingway quote it hasn't been entirely validated and there is debate as to if he really said this or not. But it attributed to him more than not.


I have read "Death in the Afternoon" and he doesnt seem to talk highly of bullfighting in this novel, so I'm not sure that quote can be attributed to him.

Anyway...another view on sport v. not a sport

That's a Hemingway quote, indeed. 'Death in the Afternoon' provides a nice contrast to 'The Sun Also Rises'. In my younger years of Hemingway idolatry, I traveled to Pamplona for the Festival of San Fermin. Did my share of flyfishing to recreate the novel on that trip...

Ah, but in "The Sun Also Rises", it seems to me that he does glorify bullfighting.
