  1. The new student was too shy to participate in the conversation.
  2. He doesn't like to participate in team sports.

to watch

My favorite sport to watch is basketball.

  1. I don't participate in sports, but I love to watch tennis on TV.
  2. Jack likes to stay home to watch football all weekend.

Here, "by far" talks about things we like the most. Mark likes many sports, but he likes football (soccer) the most. Notice the following:

  1. I like jazz and hip-hop, but rock is by far my favorite kind of music.
  2. Yao Ming is by far the most famous athlete in China.

as far as

  2. As far as pop, Michael Jackson is probably the most famous performer ever.

no matter what

"No matter" means that something in not a problem. Phil traveled every week to watch his favorite team. Bad weather was not a problem. See the samples below:
