As we plow through the offseason, I wanted to make sure and wish everybody a Happy 4th of July. Whether you're barbecuing, at a ball-game, or just hanging out with friends, the 4th of July is always a fun holiday. If you're not enjoying some good BBQ, I recommend you find a BBQ and enjoy.
If you don't have much else planned this morning, I highly recommend you flip over to ESPN at 9am pacific for the 2010 Nathan's Famous July Fourth International Eating Contest. The three-time defending champion is San Jose native Joey Chestnut. Rumor has it Takero Kobayashi will not be taking part due to a contract dispute with Major League, and yes I'm being dead serious. Whatever the case, let's hope for a fourth straight victory for Chestnut.
