Happy Independence Day! Since today is a day of celebration all across the 50 states, it will be a light day for us, both in terms of quantity and the topics in today's curds. We'll start it off with a little bit of serious Packers analysis before jumping off the deep end into the land of the ridiculous and absurd.
I know we usually suggest that those of you of age should relax with an adult beverage over lunch, but today especially we insist. Have a good time today with your friends and family, grill up something delicious, grab your drink of choice, and enjoy watching one of America's greatest pastimes: explosions.
