Since being in Germany, people here have often asked me about the culture of sports in America. I decided to do some digging and figured you may enjoy the results. People always love to say that “Baseball is America’s pasttime.” But what sports do we truly most enjoy watching.

According to a Harris poll performed in 1985, 24% of American’s preferred the NFL, to 23% favoring baseball. This marks the turning point in society.

Baseball no longer ruled that States. It is official. Football is king, with a whopping 45% of Americans saying their game of choice to be NFL or collegiate football. Basketball is virtually tied with baseball for second place in our hearts.

Any reactions to this? What sports do you guys watch? Play? Tweet your favorites and remember to #8Blocks.
