ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s an old argument, is New Mexico Cowboy country or Bronco territory? A major social media site might finally answer that question.
New Mexico has the Lobos, but the state does not have an NFL team to call its own. That doesn’t mean New Mexico doesn’t have a ton of fans.
As anyone can guess the two most popular teams are the Denver Broncos and the Dallas Cowboys.
At Sidelines Sports Bar when either team’s on expect the place to be packed. However, manager Josh Romero said in this bar the Bronco fans often outnumber Cowboy fans.
“When [the Cowboys] start winning they’ll come out, but Broncos fans you’ll always see them out here, you always see their jerseys, everybody’s wearing a jersey,” Romero said.
Whose team really reigns supreme in the Land of Enchantment?
Twitter totaled up the number of followers for every team’s twitter account in every county in the United States. Cowboys lead in most of New Mexico.
There are more Dallas fans in all but seven counties. That includes Bernalillo County where the Cowboys hold a slight edge.
In northern New Mexico and in Sierra County, Peyton Manning’s broncos reign supreme.
According to Twitter, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49ers are neck and neck as New Mexico’s third favorite team.
