The Most Popular Thing in America?

Share |

Tonight promises to be an exciting night for television. On CBS, How I Met Your Mother's Barney Stinson and Robin Scherbatsky will attempt to move one step closer to the altar as part of their never-ending wedding weekend, while the Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays will play a 163rd game of this 162-game Major League Baseball season for the privilege of getting eviscerated by the Cleveland Indians (that's for you, Pete!). Despite the drama of these two television events (okay, so really just the baseball game, I'm pretty sure this week's HIMYM is just a series of Bob Saget jokes about how hard it is to become an adult), these two show will struggle mightily to beat tonight's Monday Night Football Week 4 non-conference game  between the 3-0 Miami Dolphins and 3-0 New Orleans Saints in terms of total viewers. Combined. 

If past performance is any indication, the relatively meaningless tilt between the Dolphins and Saints will find around 13 million eyeballs, while one of the finals episodes of one of the longest running sitcoms of the last decade, and the culmination of 3 months of hard work will be lucky to pass 14 million. That's because, at least in the eyes of this writer, football is the most popular single thing in America.

HOWEVER, it has come to my attention that while football may be insanely, almost dangerously popular, it is still not the most popular thing in America. That, according to the dissentors, would be beer. Which, based on sheer numbers, may likely have more "participants" -- i.e., people who drink. But, does that really mean it's more popular? If football were to end today, how many people would be more happy than sad? Would we, as a culture, find another sport to play/watch/obsess over? If beer were to be banned (or for the sake of argument, wiped out by a bacteria) would we become a nation of wine drinkers and booze hounds?

Of course, instead of settling this like adults, by looking at the US  Statistical abstract for information on beer consumption and comparing it to things like the Super Bowl rating, we've decided to open up this debate to you, our beloved readers. So, with all that build up out of the way, it's time answer the question we've all been asking ourselves our entire lives (Please, please, PLEASE leave your reasoning in the comments if you are so inclined - Love, Management) 

Which of these is more popular, or more accurately, which of these would cause a greater outrage if banned for ever?
