TOMORROW IS A HOLIDAY. THE MOST AMERICAN OF HOLIDAYS. THIS IS NOT A DRILL.
Got plans? Gonna blow stuff up? Sit around and drink Coors Banquet and watch others do that? Good deal. Better involve red mean and grills and such, although you can't really go wrong with a well catered gig from a BBQ place or such.

Some great things came from The Opening yesterday regarding Husker OL verbal Tanner Farmer:
Tanner Farmer with a nice rep pancaking a defensive end out here at the lineman challenge. Farmer was good yesterday, too.— Wescott Eberts (@SBN_Wescott) July 2, 2013
Farmer even has his hair celebrating the Huskers.
Tanner Farmer wasn't the only guy Nebraska related at The Opening today. McKinney (TX) wideout TV Williams talked to SBN's Wescott Eberts about his decision coming next Tuesday between Nebraska and Kentucky
Not all recruiting news was good for the Huskers on Tuesday. Coveted Cornerback Naijiel Hale, who was thought to be a possible Husker commit, gave his commitment to Arizona. No Nate Dogg reference for Nebraska.
Tim Miles filled out his staff, as he hired Teddy Owens as the Administrative Coordinator for his program.
Michael Wienreb took a great look at Grantland over Tom Osborne's decision to go for 2 at the 1984 Orange Bowl, and why no one would dare do it now. It does ramble a bit, but the point is made. However, one thing that still blows my mind to this day is the whole Irving Fryar angle that last drive. However, that's something for another day.
In Baseball recruiting news, Husker commit Ryan Boldt was given the red carpet treatment by the Boston Red Sox the last couple of days. Boston wanted him badly, but in the end, Boldt is staying true to Lincoln.
Speaking of Husker baseball, former Nebraska HC Mike Anderson is heading to Norman to fill out the rest of new Head Coach Pete Hughes' staff as he takes over the Oklahoma Sooner Baseball program.
In other CFB news today, check out this concept video of Baylor's new stadium going up on the Brazos River in Waco. There's a whole lot of excitement in central Texas over this, and deservedly so.
I am really a fan of Kliff Kingsbury at Texas Tech. This is the perfect hire for Lubbock, as he's proven to be a great offensive mind and developer of Case Keenum and Johnny Manziel. Here's his thoughts about SEC coaches wanting to slow down the spread and offenses in general.
Homer Bailey threw his second no-hitter of his career Tuesday night, as the Cincinnati Reds blanked the SF Giants 3-0. This was the first no-no in MLB since it was done last year by.... Homer Bailey himself.
Things are getting to the end at Wimbledon this year. Get ready for the weekend by finding out who's involved.
You science types will like to see this bicycle. But, how do you sit and rest though?
Today's birthdays include Tom Cruise, Thomas Gibson, Moises Alou, Sandra Lee, Hunter Tylo and Wanderlei Silva.
On this day in history, the battle of Gettysburg ended in 1863, Andy Griffin passed away last year, as well as Jim Morrison.
Today is National Eat Beans and Chocolate Wafer Day, along with National Stay out of the Sun Day.
Today's video? Neil Young and Pearl Jam.
(thanks Dr. XR)
Listen for the podcast later today, where Greg and I will go ham on the things from the last week in Husker land. Have a great Wednesday, and a safe night if you're going out.
