1. He was excited to watch the game.
2. He was excited watching the game.

(Which one is grammatical? Are both OK? What is the difference between them?)

  • English -

    Both are OK, but they have slightly different meanings.

    #1 - This implies that he would be watching the game soon (isn't watching it yet) and is really looking forward to it.

    #2 - This means that he is excited about the game while he's watching it. Be sure to put a comma after "excited" to set off the participial phrase.
