Happy Independence Day

If you live in the United States, I hope you’re enjoying this Independence Day.  If you don’t live here, let me summarize the event.  In order to celebrate our Declaration of Independence in 1776, citizens of the USA celebrate with high explosives, charred animal flesh, and alcoholic beverages – usually all at the same time.

Orlando’s Big Sports Weekend

Forget the Orlando Magic and the playoffs. Those guys are just professional entertainers. If you want real sports, you have to watch real athletes who compete because it’s in their soul.
