Questions and answers
The #1 Writing Tool
M: Rory, are you ready?

R: Yes.

M: Let's talk about sports. Do you like sports?

R: Probably not as much as some people but I keep abreast of the biggest matches when I can. I think I prefer doing sports, and, well, doing exercise more than actually watching either of them happen.

M: Do you like watching sports programs on TV?

R: Well, like I said, it's not really my thing, unless it's something major, like, I don't know, my own country or city playing against another team. And even then I only really have a look in the passing. I don't have a great deal of time for it these days.

M: Do you like to watch live games?

R: Oh, I think the last time I did that was when I was a child. Getting tickets to these events and then actually getting to them can be a bit expensive and demanding. Especially now there's always, well, there are crowds anyway, but it's quite crowded. And then just the general atmosphere is not something I want to be part of at the moment.

M: Who do you like to watch sports games with? Who?

R: I suppose whenever I do, it's usually my parents, since they'll have them on TV. Though sometimes my friends and I discuss matches and their aftermath from time to time.

M: What kinds of games will you watch in the future?

R: That's a very good question. Some e-sports are getting quite popular these days. Though it's debatable whether or not they count. But certainly if there were people that were playing a game that I liked online, as unlikely as that is, then I would probably watch it.

M: Did you do any sports when you were younger?

R: To varying extents yes. But I distinctly recall not being a big fan of the experience or experiences, to be honest with you. I wasn't a very sporty child.

M: Do you do any sports these days?

R: I exercise these days. I don't think that's the same as doing sports like rugby, which was like, organized and competitive.
M: Thank you, Rory, for your answers! So they kept us in good shape. Right. Okay.

R: Thank you for giving me a sporting chance! Sorry, that was a terrible pun, but nevermind.
