    It's irritating. They don't play the games. They watch others play and comment. So lame

    My almost 3-year old nephew likes to watch videos of kids opening toys. Not kids playing with the toys. He seeks out and is entertained by kids opening boxes of toys. Strange world we live in.

    And we watch men playing sports on TV instead of playing the sport ourselves 99% of the time. So what?

    They did a good job of making fun of it. My son watched that episode with me. I said, "see. Look how dumb you look"
