I work at a small development company in my home town.

I also have a little blog of technical annoyances, where I post specific problems and solutions, and a playlist to go along with Rainy Mood, if you're so inclined.

comment Difference between “game” and “sport”
I doubt many would call a typing competition a 'game', either. You've also limited your large playing area to a real-life, physical, playing area - many of the games use the term eSports have a very large virtual playing area (first-person shooters, real-time strategy, tower defense are all classic examples). I'm not trying to argue that they should be termed 'real' sports (i.e. lose the qualifying 'e'), just that there is more in common with eSports and 'real' sports than you might think, if you drop the physcial exertion aspect.

eSports may not require a high level of physical exertion, but there is a high level of physical skill required to win, say, an FPS tournament (split-second reactions, very precise degrees of control).

Actually, video games that are popular enough to have full-time competitors (and quite large spectator audiences) have started using the term electronic sports or eSports, although this is a fairly recent usage.
