America's Sport?

Most played sport in America:

Second most played:
Soccer, making ground against baseball and other sports
Third most played:

Most played by those born in the USA (in order):

Note that professionally Baseball has the most games, followed in order by basketball, hockey, soccer.

Most viewed college sports;
Basketball, football, hockey, baseball, soccer

Asked of Americans born in the USA:
Preference if you could only watch one final championship on TV:

March Madness...23%
World Series final...22%
Soccer World Cup final...18%
(only once every four years)
Kentucky Derby.....2%
NBA final...1%
(note NBA finals have been monopolized by only a few teams)

Gaining ground: Rugby, board sports (with and without wheels), competitive Olympic sports.

With immigrants, soccer moms and minimal required equipment, the team based fast paced game of "soccer" could gain ground in the US as a new generation matures and immigrants from nations that cherish their "football" continue to migrate to the USA.

Remembering Dick Wilson

Dick Wilson remembered on Eve "Behar" Quillin website

Those interested in long time entertainer, cosmetologist,  the former Mrs. Joe Behar, Eve Quillin, check out her blog and website...

And remembering out own beloved Dick Wilson...Mr Whipple.'10.html

My own note. Dick was a friend, real friend in the true sense to all of us, as is his wife Meg (with Dick above). He believed in all talent, not just resumes and ego. He gave and gave to the Nevada SAG Conservatory during my years as chair, under Adrienne Mann Garcia and under Barbara Grant. We all miss our big hearted, British-Canadian WWII Bomber Pilot, comedy and dramatic king (many forget he did so much more than Mr. Whipple) Dick Wilson. Rest in peace.
