Is Football Becoming the New American Pastime? September 11, 2018

Is Football Becoming the New American Pastime?, Danbury, Connecticut

Baseball has long been considered America’s favorite pastime. However, the recent spike of interest in the draft and seasonal games has fans in sports bars across the country wondering if football will soon be taking its place as the favorite form of athletic entertainment in the United States.

Why Some Say Football Is Becoming America’s Favorite Pastime

Football is popular in sports bars because of its continuous displays of athleticism and power. The fact that these towering players can move at such high speeds down the field entrances fans. Baseball innings take a little longer to progress and may go for several rounds before anything exciting happens, which can make it difficult for audience members to stay focused.

The short bursts of high-energy movement throughout each quarter keep the excitement level elevated and engaging. Baseball is a slower-moving sport that doesn’t show visible progress for long stretches of time. Combine that with the fact that baseball seasons last for a lengthy 162 matchups and it’s easy to see why football is quickly gaining in popularity.

Why Baseball Will Always Hold a Special Place in the Nation

While football may be the most-discussed sport these days, it’s baseball that holds a special place in the nation’s history. Since being recognized as the American sport in the 20th century, generations from all walks of life have spent time tossing around baseballs and organizing pick-up games in the empty fields behind their houses. Today, the slower pace creates a more relaxed atmosphere and provides the perfect opportunity for quality time to be enjoyed by family members and friends.
