why is espn and sports so fascinating?

So……today is Mr. Know-it-All’s birthday and he is doing the one thing he really wants to do (according to him), and that is (drum roll please), watching ESPN.  While I am at work teaching 11 kids in the woodworking class and  daydreaming about the wonderful hair appointment I am going to have tonight, he is watching ESPN. I cannot imagine how sports can be so invigorating and exciting but it is for about 85% of the population.  I have pondered this question for over 10 years while I sit on the couch and try to watch grown men throw themselves at each other and then try to catch a ball that I can never find.  It just doesn’t make sense to me.  Or should it?  I must be missing something but I don’t know what it is.  I think Mr. Know-it-All is missing out on great opportunities to curl up on the sofa with a good book and some red licorice. 
Well, where is that other 15%? Including me, am I missing out on something?  I think they are reading blogs about woodworking, and chasing their kids around trying to get them to clean their rooms.  Ok that’s just me.
Any way I want to wish Mr. Know-it-All a Happy Birthday, you’re getting older!!!!
