Happy Independence Day America from two British blokes who feel an amazing sense of privilege, luck and joy to live within your borders.
Molly Ringwald, Ad Rock, Hart to Hart, Studs Terkel, Dana Plato, Johnny Cougar, Marcelo Balboa and Walt Whitman first attracted us.
We have come to love the country, the cities, the geography, the land, the people, the passion and the football team that represents them.
We will never take them for granted and celebrate them with you on this day from Rio. In the words of Kenny Powers, "Sure, I’ve been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I’m not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and the other countries aren’t as good. That used to be called patriotism.“
