I know, it sounds weird. Believe me when I say that it feels weird, as I've never quite had this relationship with a game. I have no interest in playing SC2 (nor the system for it) but I just love watching the higher tier players face off. I know the game in and out just from watching videos, and I've never laid hands on it.
What makes this game exciting is the way any one player can come back. The potential clutch any player has is great. Also, for the most part, this game is pretty balanced imo. These factors make sc2 a very good watch.
its like watching any sport. I don't play football except backyard games with friends but I love watching it even though I have no plans of trying to get good at it. So no I don't think its weird at all. Just like enjoying any other sport or whatnot.

I was going to say what Korvin13, but he beat me to it. The fact that SC2 is actually compelling some people to watch it more than they play it, or even watch it and NOT play it, is a testament to how great it is, and that there is real potential for e-sports to take off in the future.
