There are people who think The Sandlot, fireworks, and/or America are overrated. All those people are wrong and this scene with the majestic stylings of Ray Charles playing in the background is proof. There are plenty of things that seem better than they actually were when viewed through the lens of nostalgia. But playing sports all day with your pals during the summer followed by the occasional BBQ and fireworks show was as close to heaven as I have ever gotten in life.
Have a safe 4th of July Weekend everybody and be safe. Papa Clem is always worried sick about you kids this weekend.
