Map of the day

I just love this map of NFL Sports fan-dom by county (as based on Facebook data):

NFL fans by U.S. county, according to Facebook

Quite interesting to see just how much variation in geographic reach.  The Cowboys do seem to be “America’s team” and the Ravens seem to have about the geographically smallest fan base.  And you’ve got to be impressed with the Steelers.

    What is it about the Steelers and the Carolinas? I know some die-hard, Southern Steelers fans. Is it just that Bill Cowher is/was from here?
