2012 M Awards: Favorite Sporting Goods Store

It’s kinda like going to a bar like Cheers, where everybody knows your name. Every time you go in, you recognize every person that works there and they call you by name. It’s kind of like a family. Except that it is not like that at all. It is big and they have a wall with about 1000 footballs. Ok so they might not know my name, but if I am ever going to play 1000 games of football simultaneously, then I know where to go.

Dick’s Sporting GoodsFirst Place: 33.00%
Bass Pro ShopsSecond Place: 22.00%
The Sports AuthorityThird Place: 21.67%

Best song to listen to while contemplating this category… All My Rowdy Friends Are Comin Over for Monday Night Football by Hank Williams Junior. So what do you think, Memphis? Did you get it right? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
