    Fairly easy to guess Iowa's lone sport, if you read the rules first.

    Slate: United Sports of America

    Amusing: Ohio gets cornhole.

    Re: If each state could have only one sport

    I like it.

    Kinda wish they wouldn't have segmented some of the bigger sports into so many subsports.

    Different states with Basketball: Pro Basketball, College Basketball, High School Basketball, Women's College Basketball, Church Basketball, Street Ball

    South Dakota - Pheasant Hunting
    Wyoming - Rodeo
    Colorado - Skiing
    Utah - Soaking
