Football Is No. 1 In America

I don't think I would have guess that football -- real, American football -- is the No. 1 sport in the USA. Pretty much what everybody already knew was confirmed in a recent Harris Poll.

In results recently released as part of the 2010 NFL Kickoff Information Guide sent to media members, a Harris Poll concluded that pro football continues to be top dog on the American sports scene.

The rankings are as follows:

    ↵
  1. Pro Football -- 35 percent
  2. ↵
  3. Baseball -- 16 percent
  4. ↵
  5. College Football -- 12 percent
  6. ↵
  7. Auto Racing -- 9 percent
  8. ↵
  9. Men's Pro Basketball -- 5 percent
  10. ↵

I am a little surprised at how few people list the NBA as their favorite. Sorry about that, Knicks and Nets fans.
