'eager' doesn't mean 'crazy', if that's what you mean.
Eager - keen.
If you are eager to do something you want it very much.

why 'eagerly' not 'eager'?

'Eagerly' is an adverb. It describes how Matt looked at the bicycle. It means 'with eagerness' or 'in an eager manner'.

Hello Bev,

In passing, is it correct to say:
He looked eager to buy the bike he saw on display?
(I wanted to say that he wanted to buy the bike very much)

Thanks!
