Basketball will always be my favorite sport, but apparently I am only with about 6 percent of Americans in making that claim. The most overrated sport ever is #1 again for the 30th straight year, according to the Harris poll. I don’t know what the Harris poll really entails, but from what I read they basically just ask as many fans as they can during a given year. I guess it’s credibility can’t be all that questioned.
This is how the poll shapes up.
In 2014, 35 percent of fans call the NFL their favorite sport, followed by Major League Baseball (14 percent), college football (11 percent), auto racing (7 percent), the NBA (6 percent), the NHL (5 percent) and college basketball (3 percent).
I, for one, am completely annoyed by these numbers. Auto racing? Seriously people. How does that best the NBA and NHL? I am too annoyed at this point to continue.
