At this time of year we’re usually starving for sports.
The U.S. Open, Stanley Cup Final and NBA Finals all ended last weekend. The British Open is a few weeks away, college and pro football camps another few weeks past that.
In most years all we’d have left are NASCAR and the Cincinnati Reds, currently making a charge just to get to .500.
Luckily this is the one year in four where the sports calendar gives us the globe’s biggest sporting event to fill that summer void.
