Happy Independence Day America

star spangled banner Happy Independence Day America

I’d like to take a minute to wish the American readers to EPL Talk a very happy independence day today. I hope you and your family have a wonderful relaxing day and get to enjoy your fireworks, BBQ and adult beverages.

I’ve written about this in the past, but for me, July 4th is the weirdest of American holidays that I always have a problem trying to figure out what to do. Being an ex-pat, the significance of the day isn’t as meaningful to me as it is for most Americans. I have nothing against July 4th, but it’s hard to celebrate a holiday that commemorates the day when the USA won independence from the country where you were born and grew up.

Still, I’ll be joining in the festivities today as my family and I will celebrate July 4th with my in-laws at a block party.

And don’t forget, if you’re in the mood to cheer on the United States or you want to watch some football, be sure to tune into the CONCACAF Gold Cup which our sister Major League Soccer Talk is covering extensively.
