People sure do like to talk about sports around here, don’t they? With all the bad news about local teams the past few years, an uptick in the local sports scene (Storm title, UW in bowl game and Sweet Sixteen, etc.) seems to have energized the fans. They turned out in big numbers to participate in live chats this year on seattletimes.com.

We held lots of non-sports chats this year too, but the sports chats owned the top 10 list in terms of live viewers. The two biggest non-sports live chats occurred during the Patty Murray-Dino Rossi debate and the Top 4 results show of “American Idol.”

Here’s the Top 10:
