Who is the most popular athlete in the state of Maine? 

Based on the average number of monthly Google search queries, it is none other than Tom Terrific, himself.

Tom Brady was the most popular athlete in three other states, as well: New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Vermont, though, likes Tiger Woods. Huh? And Connecticut? LeBron James. Oh, please.

Okay, it probably didn’t take a rocket scientist to figure that out the Patriots quarterback would fare well in New England, but some of the other names on the list, released Tuesday by Best Tickets, are intriguing.

For instance, Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman winner Johnny Manziel is the most popular athlete in Texas, and University of Kansas freshman Andrew Wiggins tops the list in Kansas and, inexplicably, Kentucky.

Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning was the most popular in four mountain states (Montana, Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico) as well as his former stomping grounds of Tennessee and Indiana.

LeBron James was the most popular athlete in 23 of the 50 states.

Also of note: There are no baseball players on the list.
