As we kick off this July 4th holiday week it’s no surprise that baseball owns the top 10 sports list with a few give-away days included. Fans haven’t seen much of Bryce Harper this year so they’re going for the next best thing: his bobblehead. The Rockies at Nationals sits atop our page views list while number two includes the red hot Oakland Athletics who take on the Detroit Tigers this week.

As for music, it’s still all about Beyonce and Jay Z as their shows in Foxborough and Philadelphia rank one and two respectively. But don’t sleep on the throwback performances this week! A Counting Crows show sits at three while Dave Matthews Band and Phish round out the top 10. It’s like 1998 all over again!
