How long until a movie about fantasy is made?

I think a "Best-In-Show" style movie with some quirky characters would make a pretty good movie.

They wouldn't. They would make it about fantasy football, it is much more popular.

I agree... you put Eugene Levy in it (and I'm willing to forget about "The Man" for this one) and I'll go see it.

Any stats to back that up? I would have thought baseball was more popular and I'll tell you why: 162 vs. 16 games per year. :-?

Just because there are more games doesn't mean baseball is "more popular" than football. By raw attendance numbers I think you could easily make the claim that more people watch baseball (Major Leagues, Minors, Independent Leagues and College and High Schoo BB) than watch football in all of its forms.

However, that doesn't necessarily paint the real picture. I have season tickets to Lincoln's Independent League baseball team, but I am MUCH more of a fan of football.

I think that football appeals to a wider demographic.

My parents are from Queens and I grew up upstate. Not to say that New York doesn't have a huge football following, because they do, where I lived football fans definitely took a backseat to baseball fans. The Mets/Yankees rivalry is much more interesting than the Jets/Giants rivalry, if one even exists. My grandfather was a Brooklyn Dodgers fan and I was told he only cried once in his entire life... the day they moved to LA. So it's really just how I was brought up. When I moved to PA, I found that football fans dominated the area and it seems that outside of Major metro areas like NY, Chicago, St. Louis and southern California (not to mention a bunch of others, like Boston and even Denver), football is the sport of choice.

a contributing factor to this is that footbal revenue sharing rules allow teams to be viable outside of a major metro area (Green Bay, Jacksonville, Nashville, etc.) so not only does the nearest major metro area adopt the team as its own, but people in the boonies regularly attend games b/c its close.

Seriously, I'm in South/Central PA... so I'm about equal distance from Pittsburgh, Philly and the Washington/Baltimore area. Vast majority here are Eagles fans, followed by Steelers. A few Redskins fans and probably no Ravens fans. I'd say there's a disproportianately large amount of Cowboys, Raiders and 49ers fans here too. What's up with that?

College football is worse... Penn State is hard core here, but then you see all these Notre Dame fans. I don't get it. Go to Indiana you hacks.
