Lisa HornePac-12 and Big 12 Lead WriterAugust 4, 2008

Both football and baseball are wildly popular, but clearly football is the best sport. Check out the top ten reasons why football is the king of all sports in America.

10. Marching bands vs. an old lady hitting three keys on a church organ...are you kidding me?

9. An outfielder can chat with fans and give them high fives during play. Yeah, it's a tough game.

8. Florida State Cowgirl Jenn Sterger and the 'Bama twins. 'Nuff said about who has hotter fans.


7. A baseball team with a .500 record can get into the playoffs while a .500 record in college football might get you a bid to the Outback Bowl—there will be more fans at the Outback Bowl.

6. Your grandmother likes baseball and she knits at the game.

5. Baseball fights stink. My 7-year-old little girl can throw a punch better than these guys.

4. Baseball fans fill out box scores in their programs or play backgammon to keep themselves busy awake.

3. The '70s porn star look never left baseball. See Jason Giambi for further explanation. What's with the thong and mustache?

2. You can lose 62 games and be called a "great" baseball team.
and the No. 1 reason why baseball can take a bow to football as America's No. 1 sport.......


Baseball has no cheerleaders!
