* ''Literature/HarryPotter'' has Ron's Quidditch match (which Harry can't play in). He and Hermione get ready to suffer through Ron's utter humiliation when Hagrid shows up to ask them to follow him. They do, discovering that he has a (literal) ginat half-brother. When they get back, they hear the crowd chanting a mocking song the Slytherins came up with, and realize the lyrics are now celebrating Ron, and sung by Griffyndors. It turns out Ron started blocking goals like a champ after they left, and while initially put off that they missed the whole thing, Hagrid's problem is enough to make him forgive them.

* In an episode of ''TheDickVanDykeShow,'' Rob was watching a boxing match on TV when Laura interrupted him, finally turning the TV off. Rob turned it back on only to find out that he missed "the punch of the century." Laura apologized, and a miffed Rob said, "That's OK, the century's young yet, there'll be another punch." Then Rob realized that he might be able to catch the instant replay, which he did - he caught the replay of the announcer saying it was the punch of the century.

* {{Wolverine}} tries to watch a hockey game in an issue of ''Wolverine: First Class''. When robots from the Danger Room go rogue, he alters his catchphrase to suit the occasion: "I'm the best there is at what I do. And what I do...is watch hockey! When I want to! For as long as I want to! It's my moral right as a Canadian." Just as he gets back to the game after taking care of the robots, the TV is destroyed. Needless to say, he is very upset.
