I live down in the SEC country and football is huge.  I see alot of agents cater their Open House on Saturdays around the games.  Game themed open houses and flyers.  I also see Realtors who send out fridge calender for the college football games.  I guess if your a die hard fan, some would put work off to watch the game.  In my area, I tink it depends on who the bulldogs are playing, like yesterday they played the Gators and that is a big deal game.  NFL for me - GoHawks.

I am not sure if that has a bearing on real estate.  I think even though there may be high interest in sports, those who want to buy a home will.  A

Football tends to commit half of the population while the other half is frantically searching for an escape.

Here in the home of the Tampa Bay Buccanners, the criminal makeup of the team has been increasingly contributing to those who which not to support or vote for criminals. 

It is my hope in those cities who are host to NLF players with weak knees experience the same decline in enthusiastic support.
