Vrabel Crosses the Delaware by AndyVance

To paraphrase a great American, there wouldn't even be any civilization without winners. 237 years ago today, a group of winners formally announced their independence and civilization has never been better.

Today, we celebrate with friends, family, food and fireworks – the next-best thing to the four Fs of friends, family, food and football of Thanksgiving – and we wish you a safe and patriotic holiday. #MURICA

America does it better.

Columbus to Pasadena: 35 hours.  We're on a road trip through the desert looking for strippers and cocaine... and Rose Bowl wins!

Happy birthday!
(At least as celebrated. Since we can't exactly agree on how long in took to sign the Declaration or when it was recognized. So today seems good to me.)
Stay safe and have fun.

I'm a hurtin' buckaroo.

Thanks for the love, everyone! Vrabel Crosses the Delaware was fun to create (but a challenge). For Independence Day, though, I'm partial to this one, featuring everyone's favorite Special Teams Guru:

In 'merica, we must always attempt to one up each other.
