It's because we usually have to deal with women who have no passion for watching any sport, and then treat their man as if watching sports is cheating on them.
So when you expressed that you like watching a sport, even though not the exact one he likes, he knows you understand the fun of watching sports and would enjoy that time spent with you. I'd imagine the excitement is beacuse, like me, women have more often then not treated his enjoyment of football like the plague.

I guess it’s a good thing I’m not into the sports/jock type.
