"Poker" more popular than 50 Cent, Howard Stern

"Poker" placed fourth on Lycos' annual "Lycos 50" list, a ranking of the most searched terms of the year. Up from its spot at number 10 in 2004, "poker" trailed celebrity sexpots Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson, and Britney Spears, and beat out 50 Cent, Howard Stern, WWE, NFL, NBA, NASCAR, and "golf."

2005 saw "poker" as the most popular term searched for a sport, game, or hobby on Lycos, and was also named the number one fad, an honor it received last year as well.

"Poker" is listed as having been in the top 50 terms searched at Lycos for 86 weeks, and was firmly rooted in the number 2 spot for the last two weeks.
