Yes a lot of time playing a sport is more fun then watching it (well except running) but that doesn't take away from the fact that watching sport can be a lot more entertaining then watching a tv programme or a film
Now take something like if Spain and Holland meet in the world cup final, if I was from either country theirs no way in a million years I'd rather be playing any sport or doing any other activity then watching this match as the fact that neither country has ever won the world cup makes this match pretty much a lot more important then anything else I could possible be doing.
Once you start supporting a team or person in any sport you get emotinally involved and it's this emotinal involvment that makes wathing sport perhaps the most wonderful thing in the world
