The annual Super Bowl is the most anticipated game in America. Heck even the Super Bowl’s halftime performance is more anticipated than the NBA Finals. The NFL is the most popular league in America. NFL quarterbacks like Johnny Unitas, Joe Montana, Dan Marino, Brett Favre and Tom Brady easily are the more popular names in the sport.
There are so many sports that athletes play. Just take a look at the Olympic Games. But among the many sporting competitions, these are the 10 that Americans love like a fish loves water.
Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky are Canadians. So was Mario Lemieux. Lemieux played for the Pittsburgh Penguins while Howe for the Detroit Red Wings so the Americans were also endeared to ice hockey. Not to mention that while Gretzky began his career for the Edmonton Oilers, he reached mega star status while playing for the Los Angeles Kings.
