A Man’s Checklist for the Fourth of July

Listen, we are quickly coming up on the 4th of July – America’s Birthday. And you don’t want to let Old Glory down, do you? If you want to be the best red meat eatin, beer swillin, pig grillin’ Patriot you can be, follow my checklist of 5 items every man needs for a manly 4th of July!


You can celebrate America without beer. It’s impossible. Now, there a lot of choices of good, old fashioned American beer. But if you want to go a step above Budweiser, Miller or Pabst Blue Ribbon, I’d suggest Abita, Anchor Steam, or a Shiner.


Nothing says America like a bunch of drunk guys running around in a field playing two-hand touch or a game of wiffleball. Anything is acceptable here: baseball, football, horseshoes…it’s a great way to kill time while waiting on food/waiting for it to get dark enough for Fireworks.


This seems pretty straight forward. You can celebrate the birth of the greatest country in the world by eating Ramen Noodles or Taco Bell. You need meat and a lot of it. Pork, Steak, hot dogs, hamburgers…the whole works. And lets not forget corn on the cob, carrots, and the all American Mac-N-Cheese.


One of the things America kicks ass at is music. We were the birth place of Jazz. We produced some great icons across the musical board with Frank Sinatra, Bruce Springsteen, Pantera, Motley Crue, Ted Nugent, Hank Williams…the list goes on and just keeps getting better. So crank it up loud and make any party pop off with American Spirit.


What’s manlier than blowing stuff up? You cooked, you drank, you rocked the eff out…and at the end of the day, it’s time to blow stuff up and celebrate the way our founding fathers intended.
