in town for free camps
Nothing special, just wishing my fellow MGoBloggers a safe and happy Independence Day. America is a special country. Hope you all get your fill of food, family and fun.
So share your best USA themed memes, pictures and gifs.
Coming off road wins against the Netherlands and Germany, the USMNT kicks off at 5:30pm CT in Nashville at Nissan Stadium (formerly LP Field - naming rights changed last week). Anyone going? Looks like it'll air on Fox Sports 1.

Adidas, the German sports company seeking to regain its dominance in the U.S., is looking at opening an automated factory in Detroit by 2017.
"We can bring manufacturing back to Detroit, and that's where we want to be in 2017," said Eric Liedtke, Adidas executive board member for global brands, said in a statement provided by the company.
His remarks were initially made at an event in New York to unveil the company's Ultra Boost shoes made from plastics and netting dumped in oceans and part of a larger announcement about the company's new business strategy to quicken its manufacturing process — and move some footwear production to the U.S.
They have a new business strategy and hired an American to head their North American division. I wonder if this will have any effect on Hackett's decision to re-up with Adidas.
I know this isn't new, but I just came across it on Facebook and don't remember it being posted on the blog... 13 year old drinking prodigy accepted to Ohio State:
EDIT: it's been posted... still funny!
The top two squads, USA - Germany, go at it in semi-finals. Hope Solo has to be her stellar self for the USA to win this match. Germany's keeper is no slouch but reminds me of Frau Blucher.
