According to today's Harvard Business Publishing's Daily Stat e-newsletter:
Affluent Men Love Food More Than Sports
Nearly 80% of men with incomes over $150,000 are passionate about food, listing "dining out at great restaurants at least once a week" and "traveling the globe to explore restaurants" among their favorite activities. Fewer are passionate about sports: only 37% of married men and 17% of single men in this income group are fans.
