When my son was young, he would have to pause the sport he was watching on TV, run outside and play the sport furiously, then return and start over. He could not resist playing.Watching sports is motivational. Watching an athlete perform convinces us, in our own mind, that we, too, can do what they are doing if we just get up off the blasted couch.
