Baseball in St. Louis is almost a cult.

Here in the Youngstown area it's football, football, football.

Friday nights in the fall are dedicated to high school football. All week long Ohio High School Football fans are making predictions and sharing information on Ohio High School Sports: Football, Basketball, Wrestling, Scores, Rankings - JJHuddle's Ohio High.

Saturday's are spent watching college football. Lots of people go tailgating at the Youngstown State games while others spend their day watching the likes of Notre Dame, Penn State, and even Michigan (there seems to be a pipeline from Warren, Ohio to MI.........Prescott Burgess, Mario Manningham, Carl Diggs, etc). No matter the support for other schools, no one team trumps the support of our beloved Buckeyes. Columbus isn't the only city in the state that supports OSU. On Saturday's the entire state watches the Buckeyes. We even have an Ohio State store in our mall called Everything Buckeyes and we live three hours from Columbus! It's insane!

Lastly, Sundays are spent in living rooms and at sports bars supporting either the Browns or Steelers. Because Youngstown is almost exactly halfway between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, loyalties are split. This rivalry divides neighborhoods, families, and workplaces. You better bet that if your team loses on Sunday you're going to hear about it on Monday at work.

We like baseball (The Official Site of The Cleveland Indians | indians.com: Homepage and The Mahoning Valley Scrappers Class A Affiliate of the Cleveland Indians) and Basketball (Cavs and Buckeyes), but nothing beats football. Go Bucks!

Same here in the Syracuse area. Basketball is pretty big, considering it's nothing to have 20,000+ and at times 30,000+ for a Syracuse University Basketball game. Football is pretty big here and is kind of underrated in terms of the High School and College levels.
