TOP 5 THINGS TO KNOW TODAY with Dry Levee Salvage: FOOTBALL IS STILL AMERICA'S FAVORITE SPORT...
While there's been a lot of chatter in the media about the decline in television ratings for football, it's still America’s favorite sport. By a lot.
A new survey found that 37 percent of Americans say football is their favorite sport, followed by basketball, which was named by 11 percent.
Baseball, which supposedly is experiencing an increase in popularity because of a great World Series this year, was only named as the favorite sport by 9 percent, the lowest number for the sport since 1937.
To be fair, football's popularity is down from its peak of 43 percent back in 2007, but it's still king. (Gallup)
