Voices in my head rumble like Estadio Azteca.
Tirelessly. Yo no hablo español.
Violate my sleep all night with radio mariachi.
Tired, I agree: so now soccer is fútbol.

Independence Day Flashback

My favorite Independence Day (aside from 1776) was 15 years ago when I was visting my brother and sister-in-law on a U.S. Air Force base in England. It was both surreal and awesome watching members of the U.S. military celebrate their independence from the same country where they were now stationed as allies.
