Sporting events or museums: did you know...?

.. that according to the same NPR article mentioned earlier today, over 6 times as many people attend museums as major-league sporting events? About 140 million people in the U.S. will attend sporting events this year; about 840 million attended museums last year. Of course, many more watch sports online, but that's instead of attending. On the other hand online museums "serve as teasers"', actually inspirintg people to visit real-life exhibits.
