July: The Best Month for Sports

Posted: Updated:

Every year around this time I get a little misty having to bid farewell to my favorite sports month of the year. You see, while some consider September, with its football weekends and baseball pennant races, to be the premier time to be a sports fan. Others live for the madness of March, or the sporty Spring month of April, where basketball, baseball, and golf all play a significant role.

But there's only one month that contains both the WNBA All-Star game and the Super Bowl of Competitive Eating: the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. And that month my friends is July. Be you an avid cycling enthusiast or a dedicated NBA Summer League viewer, there's a little something for everyone in July, and this year's offerings did not disappoint.
We take a Serious Sports look back, and give an affectionate send-off to July, the best sports month ever!
