Thursday Off-Topic: 4th of July fireworks

USA TODAY Sports

Today is one of my favorite holidays. While I don't get presents like on my birthday or Christmas, I enjoy the food better (hot dogs and hamburgers are much better than turkey and cake, in my opinion). Also, I like how the country celebrates the 4th better than Christmas and Thanksgiving. We often still get together with family and friends, but baseball, swimming, and most importantly fireworks, are much more fun than shopping lines at the mall and waiting for the kids to get to meet Santa.

With all of that said, what are your favorite things to do on the 4th of July? Share some of your favorite eats for this summer holiday or give your opinion on where the best fireworks shows are on display. Or go down another random tangent, this is the off-topic thread after all.

Happy 4th rowbots! GO ROCKIES!
