July 4th Open Thread

Happy Birthday, America!

This July 4th open thread is brought to you in honor of former Dallas Cowboys linebacker Bob Breunig, who was born July 4th, 1953. Breunig was drafted in the third-round of the 1975 draft out of Arizona State University and played for the Cowboys from 1975 - 1984. Happy Birthday, Bob.

Breunig was selected in the third round of the 1975 NFL Draft, as part of the Dallas Cowboys' Dirty Dozen draft. In 1976 he became a starter at outside linebacker replacing the retired Dave Edwards.

In 1977 he replaced the retired Lee Roy Jordan as the team's middle linebacker, making him just the third player in franchise history to hold the position as a regular starter. From that position he lead the team in tackles six seasons, breaking the team's single season tackling record in 1981.

Breuning started 117 straight games, until missing half of the 1984 season because of back problems that led to his retirement. He ended his career as the franchise second leading tackler, having played 10 seasons, appearing in 21 playoff games, six NFC championships and three Super Bowls. He was an All Pro four times and a three-time Pro Bowl selection.

So Bob is celebrating his birthday, and America's birthday. How are you celebrating the holiday?

This is an open thread for holiday chat.
