Anyone watching the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest? Nothing more American than this in the 4th of July.

Saw some fireworks last night at the local baseball match.  Tonight driving up into the foothills, which overlooks the whole area, where we'll be able to see tons of fireworks going off all throughout the various communities.  Take a good beer to sip on, some delicious snacks, and it'll be good times.

I got up to Nathan's for the first time two weeks ago. A cool experience walking up to the open counter and buying a hot dog (a good one, too, if a bit pricey for one that didn't come packaged with an Orioles game), though the rest of that part of my New York trip probably should have received a rants post :P

Major League Eating grosses me out, in numerous ways.

I was at a restaurant eating while they were showing the hot dog contest. Had to look away. Down at the beach. Today was very windy and the fireworks got pushed back to tomorrow. Today felt like any other crap OC day so we're gearing up to go all out tomorrow. Happy 4th, everyone. Stay safe.
I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

It was weird not watching the O's on the 4th. Very weird. But the American cookout with great friends was awesome. I love the 4th.

Please enjoy a beverage for me today, wherever you are.  Nothing says 'merica like 10' seas and a field day!

 

Happy 4th everyone.

I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

I'm terribly disappointed that Bradley Whitford didn't emcee A Capital Fourth in character as Josh Lyman.

It was pretty good. Ran a race and didn't finish last or have to take a nap. Interesting party. Decent fireworks display, would have been better if the smoke could clear - the one way the weather kinda sucked.
