Based on Google Searches (http://fivethirtyeight.com...):
1) NY Yankees
2) Boston Red Sox
3) Dallas Cowboys
4) LA Lakers
5) Green Bay Packers
All of the top teams are MLB, NBA, and NFL until the Guadalajara break in at spot #24 for Mexico's Liga MX Soccer league and the Canadiens introduce the NHL at #27. 16 of the top 29 teams are NFL, making it by far the most popular (big surprise), however the Yanks and Sox are in a league of their own, both generating 30% more hits than the top NFL team (Cowboys).
Perhaps the "big four" should be changed to the "big three" since NHL is clearly not as popular...
