    So I'm thinking of starting an online sports store. This store will have wicked low prices. If it makes a lot of money, we will make stores all across the US and Canada. My question is, do you think sports and sports stores/companies are dying? Baseball is dying which scares me.

    No sports will never die. Its the one thing through history that you can only count on that will continue to get bigger.

    Are you kidding? Were you under a rock during the world cup?

    Yeah, maybe you're right. An online sports company is difficult due to Amazon. I can't believe I didn't think of the world cup .-.

    Baseball is obviously less popular on a national level but to say it's dying is debatable. Regionally, attendance and regular season ratings are up.

    Besides that, the NBA finals ratings were excellent, Stanley Cup finals were record breaking, and the last Super Bowl was the most-watched TV program in U.S. history... oh yeah I think a few people watched the World Cup as well.

    What would sports be replaced by? Singing competitions? Gawd just kill me.

    Well baseball's stats seem to be dying. My dad was a little league coach this year and every league in the area (a total of 100,000 people roughly) is experiencing less and less kids signing up. This apparently is happening all over the country. Everyone is going towards soccer or lacrosse
