Many people like watching ball games from television direct transmissions,so do I sometimes. This evening I watched the 2011 World Championship of table tennis.I am so happy to see that there's a new champion,his name is Zhang Jike.He defeated all the other opponents including Boll who's from Germany and at last became the new champion. Do you like doing the similar thing?

Yes,most of us watch the favourite ball games on TV,of course our favourites are different because we are from different countries.

Maybe football is the most popular game among all the ball games.

I do like watching sports on TV. However, I'm pretty sure watching table tennis would not be at the top of my list. I bet it's exciting if they continue volley for a long period of time. Best Wishes!

Hehe,sometimes I watch volleyball games,too.I mostly watch the games related to the women volleyball team of China,the men volleyball team is not worth watching.

I have to agree about the men's volleyball. There is just something odd to me about men playing volleyball. It just doesn't seem manly enough. I believe it is definitely a women's only game. No offense to the men who play. Now that I think about men playing volleyball on the beach with no shirts is awesome to watch. Just a little humor to start your day. Best Wishes!

When the women players are playing volleyball on the beach,they wear less than the men players!

I enjoy watching basketball games on tv. I like watching college basketball and nba games. I've been watching the nba playoffs for quite a while this season and have really enjoyed them. I don't really watch too much other sports games though, mainly because I play basketball and it's my favorite sport.

99% of sports I watch I see on T.V. My favorite sport is ice hockey. My favorite team is about 1,000 miles away. Their home games are Always sold out . So even if I lived closer I would Still have to watch games on t.v.I love watching hockey on t.v. because I get to see replays , many replays. Hockey is a fast game and scores happen So quickly. It is so convenient to see the replay!

I like table tennis but I'm not good at it.That night I watched the champion game and knew there's a new table tennis star.

The point of watching live games is because no one yet knows who will win. For me, it depends. If it's a replay but I don't know who'll win, I'm okay with watching. It's like watching it live but on a later time. Of course watching live is great too.
• China

What you said makes sense,especially when we aren't free,we have to watch the replay or watch the result from the news.

It depends on the kind of sports. For ball games such as soccer, football, basketball, or maybe most of them, it's better to be there physically to capture the real atmosphere and rivalry between the teams. Live ball games on TV for me would be golf because that's the only time i get to see where's the ball heading to, landed and roll. It's not possible for me to see that when i'm there on the course.
• China

Yes,golf is quite different from the other ball games.But golf is one of the ball games that I'm not familiar.

Hehe,I like watching some ball games like football,tennis and badminton,but I really don't know well the game rules!

Yes,I am not very fond of waching tennis,but I especially like watching the NBA,because it is my personal hobby is playing basketball, becasuse there full of man' passion, body clash,every man shotblocking,one-stop Slam Dunk,but a little bad is there sometimes have a fight,because they are professional,so the situation was very shocked,but most situation is fighting. I like watching television broadcast ,because that whenever the key,always give a person leave infinite daydream space,very interesting!

Nowadays I can see many young guys like watching NBA even in the rural areas,and it seems that they try to learn some basketball-playing skills from all those of their idols.

I don't really like to watch soccer on the TV. It's boring. I like to watch shuttlecock and tennis however.

yes,i like watching it on TV.i remembered the time when i have watched the 2010 world cup on TV,though the time in our country is different from the sounth ameria and the match kick off always in evening,i'm still crazy for it.the live broadcast can catch wonderful moment of match and the comment from announcers is vivid which we can get some important imformations about football player.

Haha,I can imagin that you often watch such ball games at midnight or even in the early morning because you don't want to miss all the games that you love just like some of my colleagues,but I cannot stay up so late often for age.

To be frank with you,I have no interest to sport games now,including ball games,even if I liked to play table tennis and basketball when I was in my young days.At present,I watch TV nearly every night,but just watch network news,television drama as well as cultural programs.
• China
18 May 11
To tell the truth,mostly I watch less ball games than the other programms unless there are events of ball games that I love.

It depends what ball games it is. If it is something like golf, then I am not interested in it. If it is something like football, volleyball, badminton etc, then I like to watch it. I love China
• China
18 May 11
Hehe,as common Chinese people,most of us really don't know much about golf,so we don't like it more than all the ball sports that you mentioned here.

Most people in the US like watching sports on TV. In this area, football is @ 1 and baseball comes in 2nd. My mother-in-law used to like watching wrwaring. The rest of the family liked to watch her watching wrestling. She was so into it. No one could convince her that it was at all faked. Neither my husband nor I care much about watching sports on TV, though.

I know that most of Americans love sports games,especially basketball and baseball. Hehe,your mother-in-law liked watching wrestling?It should belong to men,I think.That's really funny.

Live sports are interesting, but I don´t like watching them on television.
• China

Hehe,I don't have enough money to attend the competing spot of those ball games,so I can't be too picky.In fact watching ball games on TV is quite good,for we can watch them in better different directions.

I too watch seeing live sports events on television. You really get pumped up and want to watch your team win. I prefer to be there at the event because there is nothing like it. I've been to track and field, basketball, and football game and the atmosphere is electric. Some places are really freaky. I was at a high school basketball game in Canton, Ohio. The acoustics are out of this world. The noise was so loud that I thought I'd lose my hearing.
• China

Hehe,of course you must surport your team.I want to be on the spot to feel the atmosphere of great ball games,but it's impossible.So I just enjoy all the events on TV.
