A dull day in sports is livened by today’s Mayweather-McGregor hypefest

Folks, it is the baseball All-Star Break, traditionally one of the deadest weeks in the world of sports. So unless you are a Wimbledon tennis fan, the biggest news today was the Floyd Mayweather Jr.-Conor McGregor world tour press conference in Toronto for their upcoming boxing match, a bizarre affair in which Conor carried Floyd’s bags while Floyd carried around an Irish flag.

From what little I tuned into, it sounds like the fans there were mainly cheering McGregor and booing Mayweather. Anyway, the sooner all this fight hype ends and the fight itself begins, the better.
