Patriotic packing 

The Egg is moving from Manhattan to Chicago at the end of July, and today, even my supplies are feeling the occasion!

The other Cup

Okay, patriotic sports fans.

It’s time for you to hurl your alcohol-soaked national pride at one of my favorite sporting events — a sport that dare I say more people watch year-round (instead of once every four years):

RyderCup2014Logo.svgGolf’s Ryder Cup, which pits the United States Team versus The World — that’s the entire world, people — kicks off tomorrow in Scotland.

I’m giving you an entire day to prepare.  Gather your buddies. Pick your bar and drink of choice.  Warm up your vocal chords for the vigorous screaming that will commence.

If you’ve never experienced golf on television before, I invite you to watch these world-class players representing their countries going head-to head.

You just might find yourself screaming, beer or not beer.

 

 

Stars and stripes

I spend most Fourth of July holidays occupied by a very British tradition —

The Championships, Wimbledon

In recent years there haven’t been any American tennis players, male or female, in contention for the major titles.  This year’s champions are Serbian Novak Djokovic — yay! — and Czech Petra Kvitova.

But things may be changing in a few years.

The boys Wimbledon final was an all-American affair between qualifier Noah Rubin and six-seeded Stefan Kozlov.  Rubin won in three sets and the two players, who are friends off-court, posed for this patriotic shot with their trophies:

Finally — some American fireworks in jolly ol’ England!
