Some people refer to July as the 'dead zone' in the world of sports. With the NBA and NHL seasons wrapped up and football still on hiatus, many fans don't know what to do. There's always a sports story to be told, but it can be bit more challenging come the middle of summer.
Here are 10 signs that it's July in the sports world:
You know that ESPN loves the fact that LeBron still hasn't made his next decision. The updates on his status for next season start early in the morning, and last all day, which would still probably be the case if he had already made up his mind.
Warren Sapp didn't tip a waitress. Alert the presses! Classic example of a nothing story that got major publicity.
'This Just In: Johnny Manziel has boarded a plane. We don't know where to, but we'll keep you updated.' The guy hasn't even played a down in the NFL yet. C'mon man.
You can tell there's no legitimate news to cover when ESPN sends reporters to do live shots from Cleveland and Miami in anticipation of James' decision.
'X amount of days until football season' won't make it get here any sooner. People can count and look at calenders.
Never has American been so into soccer. Never. Is it a sign that people in this country are starting to love the sport? Or just that there's nothing else to overshadow it?
His official decision is expected to be here on Thursday, but people also thought that about Monday. Don't people normally hate Carmelo?
You know it's July when NFL Network is ranking the best players in the league.
Maybe the television numbers aren't there, but going to the ballpark in July is still very common in the good ol' US of A.
This is something that just wan't the case 10 years ago. No one used to care about Training Camp, but now fans can't wait for it to get here. Why? Probably just because it means less days to the start of football season, because nothing really happens at TC.
