Okay, so the reasons may be a bit of a stretch, but here’s why watching sports can be healthy.

1. Being a sports fan can inspire you to get active. If cooking shows inspire you to cook and eat, sports can inspire you to get active.

2. Watching sports is a workout in itself. While it’s not of the caliber of running ten miles, yelling, screaming, and waving your arms around while watching games burns an extra hundred calories per hour. (Yahoo! Health)

3. You’ll live longer. Research shows that imrpoving your relationships with your buddies helps you live longer. What better way to improve those relationships than by watching sports together?

4. It will make you smarter. A recent study (University of Chicago) finds that watching games is actually a workout for your brain. It improves the brain’s ability to absorb and digest information.
