And you are quite right, you couldn't of summed up the theme of this film better. I remember watching this movie as a kid of 10 back in and it always stuck with me. I tried to remember the title in the early 90s when dvd production took off and wanted to own it. I was able to buy it when it was finally released on dvd.
DVD of the Week: “Man’s Favorite Sport?” | The New Yorker
I pop it in the dvd player when I need a pick me up and a flashback to the family movie night. It's a cheesy colorful comedy and it definitely grows on you more and more each time it's viewed. I had a boyhood crush on Paula and as I watch the movie as a 50 year old today I can see how easy that was to do.
I hope someday they will include some type of commentary and behind the scenes footage. I recommend "The Black Marble" and "Move": she is funny and kooky in both.

Man’s Favorite Sport?
Seeing this after rewatching both Bringing Up Baby and Some Like It Hot clarified why Hawks' brand of madcap, irrevent comedy works for me whereas Wilder's in the case of that film, anyway doesn't. As with Bringing Up Baby, the humor in Man's Favorite Sport comes not just from the series of comic incidents but from the hapless protagonists' attempt to maintain sanity and dignity throughout each increasingly absurd ordeal.
More than almost any other director, Hawks gives us a sense of the narrative as something that actively imposes itself on its characters, something that is happening to them. This tendency is even more clear in this epitome of the late-period work, where comic incidents have an almost post-modern absurdity…. Review by Eric Barroso. Rock as usual is his manly charming self who finally meets his match in a woman who ties him up in knots with her verbal bantering.
Truthfully she's kind of manipulative and yet somehow she makes it all charming.
