Baseball, basketball, football, soccer = all free, basically, just find a group of guys or gals.
I agree, but for that reason it deserves bad cred? Even before this current lockout when the NHL was at it's "peak", it still didn't get any notoriety from the masses. NASCAR was argued to be at one time the most popular sports in the country. How expensive is it to get into a sport like that?
