Why 4th of July is the Greatest Holiday

By: Spiker Helms

Anytime I think of Fourth of July I think of the 1993 movie The Sandlot. The characters set up for the only night game of the year and as the fireworks light up the sky the boys play like their favorite big leaguer. The scene ends with Benny the Jet Rodriguez running around all the bases after a hard hit ball. As he speeds across the bases the other characters become enamored with the fireworks. It’s one of the greatest days in our culture.

So, grab your sunglasses, a big cup of lemonade, and enjoy listening to your favorite baseball team on the radio. Then be amazed by the firework display. It’s a great day to be an American.

Have a great 4th and thank you for reading. -Spiker
