    The bigger question is why do so many of you Republicans watch the WNBA?

    I think you read it backwards...GOPs do NOT watch the NBA.

    I hopefully won't get carded when I surmise that this has to do with the dearth of lesbians in the Republican party.

    It's the only time their wives will let them watch women in skimpy outfits.

    How about Independents - who don't get swept away with the rhetoric of either of the political parties, but have to vote for candidates from one of the two parties.

    It's middle-of-the-roaders that watch MLS more, apparently.

    Christ, it took 7 posts for someone to mention this?

    It says on the survey that it doesn't include those who said they "leaned" one way or another. So you had to be a card-carrying, rah-rah party member to fit.

    Well, it is hard to read. It looks like Republicans hate the WNBA and are indifferent on the NBA. While Dems love both. What I can't figure out is why Republican hate the Arena Football league whereas Dems like it.

    But it is true that everyone hates Soccer. No wonder John Kerry never mentioned that he played college soccer, but wore the Red Sox on his sleeve.

    Maybe that could be our hook, getting people to tune in because they hate it. I'm convinced that is why so many people watch Notre Dame, because they want them to lose. Could we get some MLS star to start bashing other sports in the media, "Those football players are big #*%#@*, IMO, they have to wear pads, and they can rest between plays", etc.?

    This is very interesting. As a democrat, of the 3 sports that I watch most, MLS, NHL, and CART Auto Racing, all 3 lie to the left.
