This is normally where I would post something outrageous about the NY Post or the NCAA’s communist ways, but instead I would like to talk about real heroes. Sites like the one you are reading now normally help in removing you from REAL life’s tragedies and the world’s troubles, if for only a few minutes a day. We write about basketball, football, and whatever other sports or entertainment personalities like they are gods. We discuss and cover our favorite teams as if their success determines our livelihoods and basic way of life.
The thing is, there is a team that does determine our freedom, our way of life, and the types of lives we lead. They have protected the American way of life for around 250 years, quite a bit longer than the University of Kentucky has been playing basketball. The men and women of our armed forces risk life and limb every single day of the year so that folks like us can sit back on a Saturday with a cooler full of cold beer with our closest friends to enjoy what we love the most, the Big Blue and our freedom.
ON behalf of the TGR I would like to thank all of those who have served in our beautiful nations military and a special shout out to those of you serving our country over seas right now. We, as Americans, take your services for granted and sometimes lose track of the fact so many of you are representing us and the fight for freedom. On this beautiful Kentucky Memorial day here in the Bluegrass, we thank you all, and can’t wait for you all to get home.
We get plenty of visits from Iraq and Afghanistan on our site each day, if any of you guys and gals would like to post anything right here on this site, you all have an open invite. Email anything you would like to say about any subject you would like to firstname.lastname@example.org
