Let's run a bit with the sports analogy. Wilshberia as Bob tends to define it would not just include the major & minor leagues of pro baseball, but every single college, high school, middle school, and community league. Plus sandlot games, softball at company picnics & family reunions. Fathers playing catch with kids in the back yard, too, of course. Oh, and naturally all games overseas, not to mention computer baseball games & fantasy leagues.
What wouldn't the label encompass?
Well, such things as two guys in Havre, Montana who like to kick a deer skull back & forth and call it "baseball." Sure, there's no bat, ball, gloves, diamond, fans, pitcher, or catcher-- but they do call it baseball, and wonder why the mainstream media consistently fails to mention their game.
