Horse Tracks: Happy July 4th, Denver Broncos fans!

With all the hot dogs, barbecues, beverages, fireworks, and everything else that comes with celebrating American Independence Day, Mile High Report wants to wish you a a safe and happy 4th. Go Broncos.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Folks, Horse Tracks is going to be short and sweet today. Have a terrific time with family and friends. Don't drink too much and PLEASE be smart with fireworks in your area. America is a pretty awesome place, so let's show it some respect by keeping most of our clothes on at the family barbecue.

A special 'Happy Birthday' to Denver Broncos ring-of-famer, Floyd Little! I'm excited to mention that my oldest son is also celebrating a birthday today. On the 4th of July, #44 celebrates his birthday, just like my boy, who will turn 4. Gotta love it.

I've posted this before, and I know there are some that will bemoan its posting because they have issues with South Park. Enjoy the sentiment separate from the show you don't like. This clip nicely sums up an American Broncos fan's feelings on this special day. I love it. So here it is.

Happy 4th of July, everyone!
