Don't mess with
Texas the US!
It's that time of year again when Americans everywhere gather to remember how we bravely fended off the Alien Invasion of 1996, and those eternal heroes Will Smith, Bill Pullman, and Randy Quaid who first helped the country pull itself up by the bootstraps and kick ET's butt!
Regardless how you and yours celebrate the Forth of July, I wish you a safe and enjoyable holiday! Lots of beer, hot dogs, and fireworks are recommended though. Don't forget the Apple Pie either.
The true spirit of Independence: BLOWING SHIT UP!
For me the fireworks started around 11:00am when both Zack Parise and Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild making my Summer dreams come true and fans all over the State of Hockey to go nuts and begin celebrating early. (Do you really need a reason to drink beer before noon?) Thousands of season ticket sales later, even Mike Modano tweeted that he was ready to come out of retirement and jump on the bandwagon.
That was quick!
Despite our strong tradition of fighting visitors from outer space, some took the local frenzy even a step further. And with those few, I too will live in the moment and end this post by wishing everyone a Happy Parisuter Day! :-)
