From Imgur.com, via Sports Grid, here’s a map of the world’s most popular sports by region, color-coded for your convenience. I’m not sure how they obtained their data, but it’s good to know that Greenland and the Amazon rain forest are soccer hotbeds.
Also: California’s favorite sport is basketball? I would have gone baseball. And although I’ve never been there, Australia seems more like a rugby/Aussie Rules place, rather than cricket.
Also having trouble finding archery, which is listed in the legend.
And this seems appropriate here for some reason:

- Man wins full marathon while pushing his daughter in a baby stroller (video) 14
- Lock and load, it’s youth baseball fundraising time: league raffling off AR-15 rifle (video) 8
- Sim Bhullar is a large basketball player, and I mean it. Anybody want a peanut? 0
- What’s with kids and all these death-defying stunts? 674
- Nothing to see here…just a 70-yard field goal by a high-schooler (video) 3
- None found
