Happy Birthday America Sports 246 Reason

Happy Birthday, Americas Sports! From masks to guns to politics to Roe v. Wade and even Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard, America finds itself fiercely divided. Thankfully we have sports to keep us united, or at least from completely unraveling at the seams. Even apart, thanks to sports, we stand together. We may not love the same teams, but we do cherish the games, leagues, players and moments that provide respite from the larger i sues threatening to crowbar us as a country. Without sports, this Fourth of July would be all red, white and boo. Its as though the victory cigars light the fireworks. That said, were in a Logan Couture Jersey slump. America once dominated around the globe. Dont look now, but the world has closed the gap. In some cases, foreigners are even hogging hardware. What once was Mike Tyson is now Tyson Fury (boxing), Lance Armstrong is now Tadej Pogaar (cycling), Pete Sampras now Rafael Nadal (tennis) and Tiger Woods (golf) is now Jon Rahm and Matthew Fitzpatrick. Our last two U.S. Open golf championships have been won by a Spaniard and a Brit; the last American to capture the U.S. Open mens tennis title was Andy Roddick in 2003. Canadian-born Cale Makar won Stanley Cup Finals MVP this month, and a handful of American stars are leaving the PGA Tour to play golf on the Saudi Arabian-backed LIV Tour. Not long ago we set our watches by the championship appearances of LeBron James and Serena Williams. LeBrons Lakers havent won a playoff series the last two seasons. Serena won her last major in 2017 and last week lost in the first round at Wimbledon to an unknown player ranked No. Patrick Marleau Jersey 115. The NBAs last four MVPs are from Serbia (Nikola Jokic) and Greece (Giannis Antetokounmpo). In the last 13 Ryder Cups were 4-9. The U.S. hasnt won the Davis Cup since 2007. We wont win the Tour de France. Weve only won one World Baseball Cla sic. We never sniff advancing in the mens World Cup. Were not even a lock any longer to win sailings Americas Cup. The most dynamic player in baseball? Japans Shohei Ohtani. Thankfully, all is not lost. The NFL Americas pastime has never had an MVP born outside our borders. And if we really wanna go jingoistic, thanks to our most dominant athlete Joey Chestnut America has won the last 14 July 4th Hot Dog Eating championships. We may need to squint a little harder to see them, but there are still countle s reasons to be proud of American sports on the countrys 246th birthday. On this Fourth of July between the burgers and bikinis take time to admire and appreciate each unique flame on this homemade, sports-centric cake: 246 candles, 246 reminders why we love our games and the people who play them. Heres hoping it reminds you how fortunate we are to have a variety of sports, and the freedom to choose which ones we love and/or loathe. Happy Birthday, Americas sports!
