Crowds get on my nerves. Plus staying home is cheaper and I can control the temp in my house.

It's free, you're not cold or hot. No Lines, don't have to deal with parking, no traffic on the road when the game is over, etc.etc.etc

I'm a couch potato and I hate crowds. I'm one of those "Alone in a Crowd" type of people. The more people around, the lonelier I feel.

More comfortable seating, no bad weather, no lines in the bathroom, and cheaper beer and snacks.

At home, I can then read, take a nap, or start dinner while the TV is on another channel. Did you figure out, I am not a sports fan? lol

Sports raise my anxiety level. I need to be able to change the channel or leave!

Because I agree that going to the event myself is more fun.You can get up and shout with the rest of the crowd without disturbing the neighbors. I'm very vocal when I get excited watching them on the TV at home. I've been told to shut up more than once. Yeah, going to the event is more fun.

Live sporting events are better because of the infectious energy you get to live in at the moment.

Because it's so exciting being there in the moment. You really can get caught up in the excitement. It's just an amazing experience. And it's a treat for me I've only been to about five or six.

I thought it tasted just like meat. I have gastrointestinal issues, so this is a great alternative.

Our vegetarian daughter ate some of these once upon a time -- but us, never.

When I lived in the city, I'd take the bus if I didn't have a car or it was unavailable. I'd do the same in this small town if there were any, but the local gov't doesn't want to put money into it. We need it badly. If you don't have a car or a ride, you are screwed! Espacially, when very hot/cold!

I live in NYC, which has an extensive public transportation system. I do not need a car and using public transportation is better for the environment.

I live in the county and no buses available. I drive a car now, but in 3 months will turn 80 and want to stop driving. I will sell my car and pay people to take me to appts and vets etc. I have groceries and pet supplies delivered.

There are no buses in the country. If I lived in a big city, maybe I would.

Living in the country it's not an option. Sometimes ride the L in Chicago during family visits and we were on and off the subway in NYC last fall -- the only way to get around!
