Top 40 Sports Searches on Baidu July 3, 2016

For those unfamiliar with Baidu, it is the Google of China. (Or, as the Chinese would say, Google is the Baidu of America, which would aggravate Google to no end.) Somehow, despite not having a team, or even a league to play in, Johnny Manziel was all over news outlets every day this week across North America for a 4 game suspension. That made me think, do the Chinese even care about the National Football League?

So I went and found the Top 40 Sports Searches on Baidu July 3, 2016. I will be testing Ted on this
