I can watch while wearing comfy clothes, in my comfy chair, with a kitty on my lap!

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

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.

The feedback and camaraderie can't be beat when in a crowd.

You get into it more when you are at the venue.

I hear Broadway is struggling since the pandemic -- perhaps since they've focused too much on vapid, middle-brow spectacle. Where's the next "Odd Couple" or "Death of a Salesman"?
