If you invite me to go to see a football game, I would be very glad to accept your invitation.

If you invite me to go to see a football game, I would be very glad to accept your invitation. Because I always take the view that attending a live performance such as a play, concert or sporting event is more enjoyable than watching the same event on television. There are many reasons for my choice, and I would explore a few of them as follows.

First, I have got this experience that attending the performance will let you have quite different feel from just watching that on TV. I still remember the time when I watched a Beijing Opera which is a traditional play of China. I usually see that on TV, and every time when I watch it, I turn to another channel at once, because I dislike it. However, after I saw a Beijing Opera by chance at a temple fair, I began enjoy this kind of play. Because, I saw what the actors wore with my own eye and I heard what the actors sang with my own ears. I found that listening to Beijing Opera is of great fun. Suppose I do not have the chance to listen by myself, I think I would not be fond of that.

Secondly, attending the performance means you have a lot of other people around you to watch it. So, other people will influence you much. Many people go to see the performance because they are fond of that. So, you have got a lot of friends who share the same interests with you by attending the performance. That is exciting. I remember I have gone to a football game with my sister. Before the game began, all the spectators are exited about the game. They held flags in their hands and wave them in their air. After the game began, all the spectators began to cheer for the team by the same way without any agreement. This made me feel excellent and would never be got from watching on the TV.

In a word, attending the performance makes you feel better that watching TV. Taking into account of all factors I mentioned above, we may reach the conclusion that attend
