The Greatest Sports Moment Of 2020… So Far
2020 hasn't been the most exceptional year in sports. Aside from the Super Bowl and a few decent NBA games, there hasn't been much for sports fans to talk about. This past weekend, that changed. While most fans talked about a megadeal that was signed by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Cheifs, I was watching the Nathan's 4th of July Hot Dog Eating Contest. It's an Independence Day tradition. For years one man has been synonymous with the competition, but this year even he took it to a new level. Joey Chestnut was able to eat 75 hot dogs in 10 minutes to earn the Mustard Belt for the 13th time in the last 14 years. He is the Michael Jordan of competitive eating. In a time when sports have been put on hold, this particular feat might be the most significant sports moment of the year. Should ESPN give him the ESPY for Sportsman Of The Year? Should he be on the cover of Sports Illustrated? Should I put a poster of him on my wall? If football doesn't happen this year, if baseball and basketball don't make it through their shortened seasons, all three possibilities are probabilities. What a year!
