I understand being results-oriented instead of process-oriented. That being said, doesn't the very nature of a leisure/entertainment activity assume it is the process that is supposed to be fun.
Good point. As an example, this school shooting in Conn. is so disturbing that I don't want to even think about it. I've been trying to fill up my weekend with sports-watching stuff so I don't spend time watching cable or browsing the internet obsessing about how horrible it is.
Sports is just a game, but it does have its place as entertainment. You're 100 percent correct that sometimes, it's the simple process of sports and not the outcome that matters.
