Happy Birthday, America

Two great standards.

Barring anything on the order of a Pulitzer winner accusing Urban Meyer of rigging camp raffles, we're off today. Hopefully you are as well.


After the jump: honorable mentions for today's headliner photo.

That's a tough mirror, America.

At least you're working. I've been looking for a job ever since I got out of the Army and sadly watching as my savings dwindle . . .

Ditto. If I have to work 1 holiday in a year, this isn't a bad one to choose.

Happy Birthday America!!!
In true fashion - we will be celebrating in the only way befitting - copious vodka drinks and lighting off explosives!!! 
America - f@#$ yeah!!!

America. Freedom. Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Since we are celebrating America, you should try an American drink. Use Bourbon, not vodka!

You do know that there are US companies that make vodka?

No day, even a holiday, is complete without a lecture from Denny. Happy 4th!

By an act of God/My GM, I was called off this morning. Happy America Day

One of the great things about July 4 is that it is now less than 2 months from the start of football season!

Sorry Tennbuckeye19. I am not shaing that nickname with him. He'll have to settle with Bucky.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.
