244 years ago, the Continental Congress passed the Declaration of Independence, establishing what would become known as the United States of America.
Those who get a chance to go back to Philly should visit Independence Hall. Had a great tour led by a US Park Ranger Don’t remember exactly what year it was but we saw Jeremy Lin play for Harvard vs Penn and went to the 25th Anniversary celebration of the 1985 Villanova national championship where they defeated Georgetown in an epic upset— wait my math skills and lawyer derived logical reasoning skills - now places our trip in 2010. Anyhow I like the post and the tradition of publishing the Declaration of Independence Loved the Vince Lombardi quote. He is absolutely right.
Thanks for maintaining the tradition of posting the Declaration in your new “home.” Never a better time than the present to read again these amazing, enduring words.
Thanks. Nice to see this holiday actually celebrated and supported on a sports forum.
