NEW YORK – On behalf of the nygreporter, I would like to wish all of our readers and Giants fans everywhere a very Happy 4th of July! Our Independence Day has a ton of meaning and I hope that the kids reading this will do some investigating on their own to find out the true meaning of why we celebrate this holiday. We all belong to the greatest country in the world and you should be thankful and proud to be an American.
I would like to specifically wish the U.S. military a very Happy 4th of July because without you, there would be no us. You are not forgotten!
There will be a beautiful fireworks display on the Hudson river tonight (ranked No.1 in the entire nation) along with millions of barbecues and parties all over the country. Setting off fireworks has become the activity most associated with this holiday and I hope that all of you kids reading this will be very careful when handling them. Be sure to have your parents with you and do not go near any firework that doesn’t explode or looks like a dud. These are mini-explosives and could really harm you if you handle them the wrong way. My simple advice for the adults is don’t drink and drive.
The NFL lockout has now reached 115 days and as our article stated yesterday, the games are coming up on the calendar very fast now. There isn’t much wiggle room left before the 2011 season is irreversibly effected. Let’s hope that the powers that be come to some sort of a solution this week and save their product the embarrassment of canceling the entire season over money. That is something that will not sit well with the American public during these hard economic times. We can discuss this more during the week but for today, celebrate and enjoy our Independence Day!
What are your plans for this 4th of July holiday?
