Popularity is often a difficult thing to quantify ... except on the internet. Jim Kozimor and Melanie Collins of Yahoo! Sports Talk Live took a look at the most-searched queries in sports within the Yahoo! engine to see what the most popular topics were in 2013. Of the most-searched teams, the majority make a lot of sense. The Cowboys are "America's Team" and sit at No. 1. The Red Sox won the World Series and sit at No. 2. But at No. 10 - of all the professional sports teams a fan could choose to search - are the Milwaukee Bucks. Who knew so many people cared about last season's eighth seed in the Eastern Conference?
The athletes list has an similar ratio of logical and perplexing inclusions with Tim Tebow and Tiger Woods at the top and Lamar Odom and Ronda Rousey also finding spots in the top 10.
