For most of America, this was a 3 day weekend laden with Sun, Barbeques, parades, and Fireworks. But how many of you played golf? I am hoping most of you!
If you didn’t get a chance to golf, maybe you were in or attended a Golf Cart Parade, which have become fairly big in the past few years. If you have pictures I definitely wanna see ‘em!
One of the most honored 4th of July feast foods has to be hotdogs. Golf Digest has long since been against them, saying that they were nothing but fat and cholesterol, but seem to have changed their tune a bit this year:
You’ve heard the Golf Digest nutritional spiel for years regarding those lethal, nitrate-loaded, cholesterol-building hot dogs that you love. Here is a quick review for those who have forgotten: a dog does have protein, iron, potassium and Vitamin-C benefits, but the sodium, fat and cholesterol content are off the charts. Get one with cheese sauce, and you’re looking at 545 calories. All of which is why we’ve always suggested a nutrition bar for a back-nine energy boost.
But this time around, you’re getting a reprieve from the message: We’re with you, and that’s the last of the bad hot-dog news.
Why the change of heart? It’s Fourth of July time for starters, and franks and the Fourth go together quite well. But, in general, a hot dog is quick and cheap, and when we’re hungry, the salt and fat in a dog taste mighty fine. Seven billion hot dogs are sold between Memorial Day and Labor Day — undoubtedly a huge chunk at the golf course — but they are lovable and edible year-round.

Let me wrap up by saying Happy 4th Of July, I hope it was fun and safe for all of my Rock Heads!
