Graphic Truth: Which sports are Canadians and Americans most interested in?
The US and Canada are starkly divided… when it comes to sports.
While millions of Americans will tune in for the College Football Playoff National Championship on Monday between the Washington Huskies and Michigan Wolverines, most sport-loving Canadians will probably watch an NHL game instead. The Canucks, after all, are playing the Rangers at the same time.The same is probably true for February’s Super Bowl. While over 115 million in the US watched the biggest game tied to America’s favorite sport last year, just 8.6 million Canadians tuned in. Why give American football the time of day when you can watch men take to the ice with knives strapped to their feet to bang a puck around, eh?
