I'll give the south one thing, their college football dominates!
So does High School football. The town I live in had a population of approximately 9200 , and they has eleven football coaches at the high school....they taught Drivers Ed, P.E. and pretty much anything else didn't didn't need a "brain". We had one coach that was an Ex Marine drill instructor....the guy was a total jerk!! My dad (who under normal circumstances wasn't "that" kind of guy) put this coach one handed about a foot up a wall, and punched his lights out due to something he had done to me.
And......when we moved to Texas.....I was riding my bike in front of my house while the movers were talking our stuff into our new home.....and this "old" guy that lived across the street from us who was sitting on his porch called me up to his porch, at which time he asked me is a deep southern drawl...."Boy.....where y'all from???" I told him Illinois.....at that time he asked me..... "do y'all know the difference between a Yankee, and a damn Yankee?? I said "no"....He then told me a Yankee staid up north, and a damn Yankee came down south.....he was was dead serious about it.....to the point that I don't think he and my dad said 10 words to each other in the nine years my dad lived there before he passed away!!
