Enough with the moaning. On this special holiday, can’t we just enjoy? Isn’t it time to put aside the petty complaints about ESPN’s dreadful coverage, the clueless announcers, the partisan/xenophobic fans, the uneven officiating and the shameful theatrics?

But enough about Takero Kobayashi’s record 6th consecutive Hot Dog Eating Contest victory today at Coney Island. Italy v. Germany is scoreless after 85 minutes.
