Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of a Trophy

Recently someone asked McKane what his favorite holiday was and he responded without hesitation, “the 4th of July.”… Not Halloween with its candy, costumes, and tricks?… You see, for Tom’s family the 4th of July is no mere weekday to be acknowledged with a few fireworks and hurrahs; it is a full-on, no holds barred, 24-hour celebration of freedom, friendship and family togetherness involving food, fun, and most of all competition. Originally their summer tradition began as a backyard barbeque and water balloon volleyball match, but in recent years, it has escalated to a full-scale Olympic —– requiring multiple venues and culminating in the presentation of the much-coveted trophy.
