The Fourth of July, All American Grilled Hamburger.
To be a red-blooded American is to seep yourself in traditions: believing in the Tooth Fairy, going to prom, tailgating, complaining about things you cannot control, and, above all else, clogging your arteries with various red meats while wearing jean shorts on our nation’s birthday. We do it for pride. For honor. For America.
