What’s the Best Sporting Event to Watch as a Fan?
Grab your popcorn, kick your feet up, and enjoy the ride!
What do you think the best sporting event is to watch as a fan?
As the sun shines on the first day of Spring, the second round of the Big Dance has begun and basketball is on all day. Every game is being televised on CBS, Tru-TV, TNT, and TBS. So far in today’s action, Dayton upset Ohio State, and Harvard became the first 12-seed in 2014 to beat a five-seed (Cincinnati).
Nothing beats these first two days of the tournament, and it’s heaven for hoops junkies. Millions fill out brackets, businesses watch the games from work, Bill Raferty yells, “Onions,” there’s buzzer beaters, and fans yell at the top of their lungs cheering on their favorite teams.
Second, the Super Bowl probably has reason to be a national holiday. Two weeks lead up to the big game, media day, pregame all day until kickoff, the game, and a big halftime show.
While the Seattle Seahawks blew out the Denver Broncos, 43-8, the game’s popularity resulted in the largest television audience in television history. (111.5 million viewers).
Third, baseball is America’s pastime, and as the season approaches, a petition was formed to make Opening Day a national holiday.
After those three big events, the Masters tees off the week after the NCAA tournament. It’s a tradition unlike any other, and watching the best players walk up Amen Corner on Sunday is always a treat to watch.
The NBA Finals, Stanley Cup Finals, and the U.S. Open in June create drama, and give sports fans a reason to spend a night, or weekend on the couch watching LeBron, Sidney Crosby, or Tiger Woods.
