Happy Independence Day!  Eleven score and 17 years ago, a bunch of hot and sweaty dudes (they were locked in a room together for several days, hygiene being far different then than now, ICK) risked (and ultimately lost) everything because they were fed up.  What ensued was a (effectively) a 40-year struggle for independence and recognition.  Today, I like to think about the struggle that was building this nation and those that died for it pre-20th century (when we shifted from nation building to, well, nation building other people's nations).  It took A LOT of determination, fortune and luck to get us where we are.  I suppose the freedom thing didn't hurt.

 

More baseball card pictures are taken at Wrigley than anywhere else.  The photographers like working out in the sunlight.
