Great column by SI's Frank Deford.
I'd like to think the LeBron James soap opera wouldn't have played as well (on TV, at least) outside of summer. I could be wrong.
Same goes, for sure, about the hot-dog eating contest. Egads! What's the summer coming to? (Hopefully an end, in that case).
The Wimbledon set to end all sets was epic; and safe to say it'd have been big sports news if even in the dead of winter.
The "Is Lance on drugs?" story is a yawner.
But back to the hot dogs. Really?
