Well, if I really like something, I'd rather do it myself instead of watching other people do it. For example, I've been a competitive distance runner for years. I very much enjoy the sport but I have minimal desire to turn on the TV and watch other people run.

I'm not saying people shouldn't, just that I don't understand the basic urge and I particularly don't understand the almost pathological zeal that some people express. To twist an old saying:

Those who can, do. Those who can't, watch it on TV!
