Sports from Where?

Hello All,

In further thought regarding the discussion of sports taking place on these 
various list-serves and robins, I got to wondering where, when and who 
discovered and recorded the first "sport". By this I am referring to 
VARIEGATED color, rather than form variations.

Also, are shades of green considered variegation in the general sense?  We 
use the term loosely to describe leaves with two or more distinct colors, yet 
isn't a sport with say chartreuse green a variegation if it originated from a 
dark green leafed mother plant?
