The Fourth of July is nearly upon us and what better way to celebrate than with this gallery of athletes holding the American flag. But to answer my own question, here are two better ways to celebrate: this gallery of girls in American flag bikinis and this gallery of babes in baseball gear. If that didn't do it for you, here's a gallery of national flags made from food.
Three Great American Moments
When Jimmy handed me the keys to Hot Clicks, he told me I could do whatever I wanted for July 4th. With that in mind, here are three random moments that made me particularly proud to be an American. The first is from Wrestlemania VII in 1991 when American hero Hulk Hogan took the WWF championship belt back from Iraqi sympathizer Sgt. Slaughter. The second is a song that should be required listening for all American school children - Charlie Kelly's patriotic ditty from season 1 of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. Last, and most important, is Rocky Balboa's speech from the end of Rocky IV. "If I can change. And you can change. Everyone can change!"
