    I know in the Philly area there is a lot of crossover.  And if the Eagles were playing well then I think people would notice less but still notice.  But in the States it is a 2nd tier sport indeed.  

    And I hear you about the in person experience.  It is awesome (although I love it on TV as well).  That is much different than other sports.  Professional football is a snooze in person.  I'd much rather watch on TV (with a DVR is best).  In person, it really strikes you how much time they spend standing around.  Baseball - well the game itself is a snooze but I understand that you go to be at a baseball game not necessarily to go watch a baseball game - it is nearly all about atmosphere.  And pro basketball?  I find that pretty dull as well - it really strikes me as monotonous.  Although the speed of the game is far better than football.  I'd take a college ball game any day over the pros.
