Fourth of July Holiday a Cause for Celebration, But Also Remembrance Among Sports Fans

The Fourth of July is a time to fire up the barbecue, shoot off some fireworks, play some ball and spend time with family and friends.

But amidst all the celebration, what shouldn't be forgotten is the reason for all the celebrating in the first place — the birth of our country. So when you're devouring your third hot dog or looking on in awe at the fireworks while rooting for your favorite team, take a moment and remember why you're proud to be an American.

Happy Independence Day, everyone.
