    I Know What You Mean..

    I know what you mean: you'd rather sit down and watch them. :)   I've seen them standing and I prefer sitting down as well. I completely understand.

    I'm more impressed with intellect

    than physical ability. I also prefer an activity that produces a result. You won, so that gives you the right to talk trash. And?

    I Don'T Grasp The Concept Of Sports

    I Enjoy Playing, But Watching? Only For One Reason

    I've been to all sorts of professional sporting events. Most were not something I would want to do again. The only exception was camping out on the street to get into Wimbledon tennis -- and that was more about the whole experience than about watching tennis. I'd rather do...
