Where Do The Rockies Rank In Popularity?

Not very high according to this year's Harris Poll.

The Rockies came in at #20 (tied with the Baltimore Orioles), which is three spots higher than they were last season, but down seven spots from their peak in popularity after the 2007 World Series.  

It would have been nice to see the Rockies maintain some of their popularity from that incredible run in 2007.  Then again, I personally don't miss any bandwagon fans either.


Among some of the teams more popular than Colorado in 2010: Seattle (12th), Cleveland (17th), Arizona (18th) and how in the hell did the Kansas City Royals (19th) get above them?  Seriously?

The Royals jumped TEN spots from their 29th ranking last season.

It should also be noted that 1% of those polled picked the Rockies to win the World Series.

How it works: The Harris Poll surveyed about 2,227 people between June 14th and 21st.  

How they decide on those dates and the number of people is beyond me, but that's what the Harris Poll is all about.
