    Realistically I think it's football and it's probably not close... but after hearing "GET IN THE HOLE!!!" on every goddamn tee shot on the back nine today, it seems like golf is at least in the discussion.

    College or NFL?

    Take your pick.

    I'll go with NFL, because I find blind, rabid allegiance to a corporation to be slightly creepier than it is to a school. It can go either way, though.

    Is MMA a sport? Because that's the hands-down, UConn-women-dynasty-level winner.

    Pro football is a distant second.

    Golf fans are upper middle class douches who really need to tell you about the beer they had with a guy who works for a company that makes those fasteners on airplane seat trays. They're awful but they don't rise to the level of the football fan. Football fans (the hardcore put on a costume to games and whose lives are planned around the next game fan) are horrendous and violent Neanderthals. One-on-one MMA fan may be worse, but football fan has numbers.

    NASCAR. Hands down.
    In no other sport do black people have to face Confederate flags on a regular basis nationwide. NASCAR has made token, half-hearted attempts but has only asked their fans to stop bringing them. No requirements. Gotta play to the base.

    The Yankees, duh.

    Oh, wait.

    Liked because of the callback, not necessarily the sentiment.

    Football was the first to pop up in my mind, mainly because I know those fans usually spend at least 2-3 hours in the parking lot getting liquored up, leading to some bad behavior during the game.

    Good points made on NASCAR and MMA, though.
