It’s that time of year again! You know, that time of year when you get really drunk in the woods with your cousins until you think it’s a good idea to shoot Roman candles at one another. I’ll be playing a little drinking game where I take a shot every time someone says “’Merica” in a tone that indicates that they don’t think that joke is old and played out and generally less funny than anything I post here on the reg.

If you need me on Friday, I’ll be running around in jorts and a tank top while eating bomb pops. For those of you who don’t quite have your Independence Day plans set in stone, I’ve made you a list of ways that you can enjoy the holiday, not only as an American, but as an Oklahoman! So fire up the grill and pop the top on your favorite 3.2 brew. It’s about to get all kinds of patriotic up in here.
