    What is America's True Sport?

    With all of Baseball's problems lately (steroids,the list,how much they are spending on players,the length of the season,losing to japan, depression of the cubs year in and out)

    Has Football become America's Sport?

    I know football is far from perfect..

    I was just curious what others thought..

    (I think football has taken over)


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Re: What is America's True Sport?

    Growing up, I'd have to say baseball.

    Within the last 15-20 years it seems that football has taken on a life of its own. Maybe I'm just more aware of it now. Still, I'd say football.

    I know there are plenty out there that disagree.

    Agree, I can live very easily without baseball, but football that is something totally different.

    Re: What is America's True Sport?

    I voted with my heart and voted for baseball, but to be honest, football is the number one sport right now.

    The only way you should play soccer is if you're going to be a PK for ISU.

    Re: What is America's True Sport?

    Today? Easily football. Not even close IMO.

    Baseball is a distant second.

    Basketball and hockey just fill time.

    (I'm speaking mostly of the pro game here. I love college basketball above all)

    It is ok to let them do a little soccer at a young age to let them improve their overall athletic skills. Just make sure they know what shape of ball is more important in the end.

    Re: What is America's True Sport?

    I prefer basketball - but judging by how many in the US pay attention to the Superbowl, and how many pay attention to the World Series, I'd have to say football is America's sport. I honestly don't even know when the baseball season begins or ends, and I don't know until the WS is all over who was even playing. It's just not interesting anymore.

    Re: What is America's True Sport?

    10 years ago I would have said baseball, but all the problems in MLB have really soured me on the sport. I would probably vote for football, but only for college football, I'm not really a fan of the National Fieldgoal League.

    I think baseball is a better game, but there's no doubt that football is the most popular sport at the moment.
