While baseball will forever be America’s favorite pastime, it is a distant second to American Football in terms of popularity. In fact, if you add college football as a separate category in this ranking, baseball could easily fall to third place. That’s how popular American Football is in America.
Michael Jordan took the NBA into another stratosphere. He made the NBA into one of the most lucrative professional leagues in America. With Kobe Bryant and now LeBron James keeping the fire alive and the arrival of international players in the scene, the NBA isn’t just one of the most popular sports in America. It’s one of the most well-loved sports all over the globe.
Americans’ interest in sports seems excessive to many foreign visitors. Television networks spend millions of dollars arranging to telecast sports events. Publications about sports sell widely. In the US professional athletes can become national heroes.
