The sports one follows probably does have some strong class
correlations. NASCAR has almost entirely a blue collar following,
while golf and tennis are white collar, I think.
In the US, I think football and baseball are pretty cross-class. I
don't really know about basketball and hockey.
The New Zealander's on the list can correct me, but I got the
impression rugby appeals to all kinds, while cricket is less blue
Can anybody think of other examples?
