Much like the silver medal in basketball at the Quadrennial International Amateur Warm Weather Sporting Competition recently underway in the capital of the United Kingdom, getting second place on the countdown is just as good as gold these days. 1D does not appear to be going anywhere, leaving Jason Aldean to clear that last hurdle and hit the #2 spot. This has been his best run in countdown history, and in other times, he’d have easily secured #1.

Football heats up this week as well, with the Longhorns moving up 2 spots to #3 and the Cowboys gaining a spot to round out the top 5. The Texans enter the countdown at #7, where Mississippi State made room for them by sliding to #8. That’s 40% of the countdown and we’re just about to August. NFL fans can enjoy preseason match-ups starting in just 2 weeks. College football fans have a little longer to wait, but September is right around the corner.

It would be remiss not to note Bieber Fever appears to be in complete remission, as he falls to #4.

The boys of summer aren’t done yet, and the Rangers reappear in the #6 spot this week. Also returning after an absence is Coldplay, who have drifted in and out this summer as their Mylo Xyloto Tour continues its major North American leg before returning to Europe at the end of August.

Finally, after an even longer absense, the WWE returns to the countdown. SummerSlam might be the reason for that, as it will land in the Staples Center for a 4th time in a row on August 19th.

Protip: the kids like the One Direction. They also like the Justin Bieber, just not quite as many of them at this point, it would seem. Mr. Bieber still has no concerts scheduled, while One Direction recently announced the follow-up to the tour they haven’t finished yet. The “2013 World Tour” will kick off less than 3 months after the “Up All Night Tour” ends in December of 2012.

The Derby and Oaks hang onto the #3 spot, keeping the top of the countdown the same this week. Things get mixed up pretty quickly after that. Garth Brooks returns as interest in his headlining gig at the Calgary Stampede lands him in the #4 spot. Jimmy Buffet is swinging by ACL Live at the Moody Theatre next month, and that’s probably why he appeared at #5 this week.

The bottom five reminds us that the NFL has returned at a slightly more normal time this season. You may recall last year the season almost didn’t happen, but this year the schedules have been posted and you can stock up on your favorite NFL team’s tickets a solid 4 months in advance of the preseason. The boys of summer aren’t left out either, as the Rangers hold steady at #8 and the Yankees peak in at #10 this week.

10 - Dallas Mavericks

Interesting shuffle this week, as we bid a final farewell to bowl season. The NFL postseason still figures heavily on the list, though it’s now in the bottom five. At the top we have Van Halen, whose upcoming tour has proven quite buzzworthy, thanks in no small part to the release of their first new album in fourteen years. It’s the first Van Halen album since 1984 to feature David Lee Roth on lead vocals. Fans have had quite a wait for this one, and are ready to pack stadiums to see them.

In slightly more bittersweet concert news, the #2 entry on the countdown, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, surged from #9 last week, but also announced the kick off of their tour would be delayed. Chili Peppers faithful will have to wait until late March to see the band.

Rounding out the top 5 we have the Heat hanging in at #4 and Drake, who is on tour promoting his latest album, Take Care.

Down in the bottom five we find the Texas and the Super Bowl, along with a favorite diversion for the cold winter months: Monster Jam.

4 - Miami Heat
5 - Super Bowl
6 - BCS Bowl
7 - NY Giants
8 - Tool
9 - Red Hot Chili Peppers
10 - Coldplay

Starting off 2012 with a fresh list. A list that shows thoughts of football fans turning back to the pros as bowl season comes to a close. Not to say there’s not a little steam left in that engine. The Cotton Bowl makes a strong showing at #2 and the big rematch finds its way to #6.

The pros take the top spot, as the Texas make their debut appearance in the post season. Houston fans are lining up to see the Wildcard game against the Bengals on home turf in Reliant Stadium. Saints fans are little more accustomed to post-season play, but that doesn’t dampen their enthusiasm, pushing the team to #3 on the list. The big game itself makes it to #5, and Giants fans can be content with #7.

The NBA’s Heat check in #4 while the bottom of the countdown sees a tidy cluster of concert performers. Leading off the pack is Tool, on tour this winter with the possibility of a new album arriving this year. The Red Hot Chili Peppers return as do Coldplay, both seeing a lot of interest in their tours. It’s a little cold out there these days, so catching a concert inside a nice warm venue is a great way to keep warm.

The reign of bowls came to a quick end this week. Concert performers surged back, rounding out the top five with three hot acts. Both the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Coldplay haven’t been seen on the countdown for quite a while, though mostly because they haven’t been touring. That’s set to change in 2012, as both bands are hitting the road for tours that are shaping up to be huge sellers.

Starting off the bottom five we have the Houston Texans, who are set to head into uncharted territory: the postseason. The recently minted franchise has come out on top of the AFC South, and will be playing for their first shot a Super Bowl.

The NBA returned recently, but they didn’t make a huge splash on the countdown until this week. Last season’s champions, the Mavericks, appear at #7, followed closely by their championship rivals, the Miami Heat.
