Football still rules the roost by a wide margin, according to an ESPN story based on a recent poll.
35% of Americans 18 and older name NFL football as their favorite. Major League Baseball came in at a distant second at 14%. NASCAR, NBA and NHL couldn't even muster more than 7%!
This is the 30th straight year that football has been the favored American sport.
Of course, here in New England, as much as we love our Pats and Sox, we're a pretty passionate hockey bunch. Basketball? Meh... we'll check on the Celtics in a few years.
All that matters to me nationally is baseball finished way ahead of NASCAR, which is the way things should be!
