Major League Baseball
The Boston Red Sox are one of those baseball teams with a national following. If you can't make it to Fenway Park, there are dozens of sports bars all over Bean Town where the televisions will be broadcasting the game.
And if you're in New York City, Chicago, Illinois, Washington, DC, or practically any other city in the United States, televisions broadcasting Red Sox games are usually as close as the nearest Irish pub.
I've even heard that there are Red Sox hangouts all over Japan, where baseball is clearly the national sport.
I can vouch for that. The hotel I stayed at in Tokyo recently had a television in the fitness centre, and it broadcast MLB games live. I remember watching the Red Sox play as I was working out - among other MLB teams . . .
