Sport Entertainment

It seems like no matter what time of year it is, there is always some kind of major sporting event to watch. So I was curious if this was actually true or just my perception. Below I plotted the typical "Amount of Sport Entertainment" in given year for the 4 major sporting leagues in the US (NBA, NFL, MBL, and NHL).

There is definitely a low in the June/July time frame. Maybe the sports industry does not want to compete with the summer movies.

pre = preseason = .5
r = regular season = 1
post = post season = 1.5
f = finals = 1.5

Jan.1 = first half of January
Jan.2 = second half of January
