    23 Reasons Kids Watching Sports Are The Best

    There's nothing quite like a kid at a game.

    1. Because their enthusiasm is unmatched.

    2. And they always play it up for the camera.

    3. Even if they don't exactly know what's going on.

    4. Because they can ignite and excite the crowd...

    5. Simply by raising their hands.

    6. Or their voices.

    7. Or by taking off their shirt and twisting it 'round their head like a helicopter.

    8. Because everything's better when a kid does it.

    9. Like a halftime performance.

    10. Or the sprinkler dance.

    11. Or a hand-drawn sign.

    12. Or giving away a souvenir ball.

    13. Because the littlest gestures mean the world to them.

    14. And they're not afraid to express their emotions.

    15. Well, sometimes they are.

    But even when things go wrong, kids still manage to stay positive.

    16. Like when this little guy poked himself in the eye, but was too caught up in the moment to care.

    17. Or when Ronaldo's shot broke this kid's wrist, but he toughed it out for the remaining 84 minutes of the match before going to the hospital.

    18. And let's not forget about how amazingly unpredictable kids are.

    19. Like when this young man ran alongside the Arsenal team bus for five miles.

    20. Or when this kid, umm, shifted his attention away from the game.

    21. Or when this Red Sox fan tricked the Yankees into giving him a ball with the ol' hat switcheroo move.

    22. But most of all, because kids love the game.

    23. And they can make you love it too.
