List Criteria: Vote up any sport you think is a favorite in the US

For the past century, sports have become an important part of American culture. Many of the most popular sports in the world have been American games. A fair number of Americans either participate or follow sports. Children play sports to meet other kids their own age and they teach important tactics, like teamwork, which helps people later on in life. Football, not to be confused with European football or soccer, is one of the most popular American sports. Unlike other sports, football is generally played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, which allows players and fans time to enjoy and get excited about the games. Since there are only a limited number of football games (depending on the level you're watching), these game are some of the most exciting to watch. The Super Bowl is always the most watched sporting event in the United States, drawing nearly 100 million people to their TVs to watch an event that's distinctly American.

Basketball is another popular American that has a worldwide reach. Becoming almost as globally relevant as soccer, basketball and the NBA in particular have turned the game into semi-popular American sport into a game people across the globe love to play.

Vote for the game you think is the Most Popular American Sport on this Ultimate List. If you see a sport that isn't on the list and should be added, feel free to.
