I have to say watching sports in the stadium is definitely better than watching on television. The main reason is that you can feel the electric atmosphere at the stadium. You know, people around you are excited, and cheering for their team. And you become exhilarated as well!
Also, let’s not forget that on television, the commentators can sometimes be very distracting. You know, like they can put in unnecessary comments about the skills of the players and I find that annoying.
I don’t know if others will agree, but gamesmanship seems to be more important to me. The main reason is that it is acceptable to bend the rules of the game to gain a competitive advantage against your opponent. In away, you are not cheating technically, but you have a great chance at winning.
Also, since in a competition, everything pales in comparison to winning. A match can sometimes be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; I think players should do everything they are allowed to to win.
Well, I must say it depends on the age of people. You know, for young people like me, we like to play sports that are physically demanding like tennis, or soccer. The reason is that we play sports to get fit, to stay healthy, to get in shape, so we need to run a lot, to move around a lot.
Old people, however, tend to play sports that are not too physically demanding like tai chi or Jogging because their joints are stiff and inflexible so it’s not a good idea for them to move around a lot, I think.
Well, I think it largely depends on the area where people live. Citizens of big cities usually flock to leisure centers at weekends to play various kinds of sports. I would say the reason is that they have the necessary infrastructure for the sports that people like to play. Like for example, if you want to play tennis, the centers have tennis courts for you with a hard surface, nets, and balls for you to play.
If people live in remote areas far away from the cities, I suppose they can only play in the open field for the lack of stadiums and recreation centers. But you know, instead, there are a lot of wide open spaces that people can use to play sports. So, it’s not that bad for them I think.
