Next week, the League will be taking a break to honor the Fourth of July, so the purpose of this week’s topic is to get you in the holiday spirit:
Patriotic pop culture. What movie, TV show, comic book, etc. makes you want to stand up and salute Old Glory?
Now, I realize some of you may not be in the United States, so feel free to express patriotism for your own homeland.
Once you put up a post on your site add a comment below with the URL. Next Monday, I will put up a post here on Cool & Collected with a list of all the contributing blogs. Once that list is posted, if you haven’t already done so, try to incorporate at least three of your fellow League members’ links (but more would be great!) into the article you wrote on your site.
By cross-posting like this, we will help each other out by sending new readers to each other’s sites. Have fun!
(Wondering what the heck this is all about? We’re recruiting for this loose-knit, rag tag crew! Here are the details for joining The League.)
I was think about this about this basic subject yesterday while watching flight of the navigator with my son.
wow I should try to post my comment when Im awake next time.
Bomb Pops are the… um… bomb?

There are three minutes and thirteen seconds at the beginning of G.I. Joe the movie that get me as close as I come to patriotic!
Few things make me want to salute (and whack someone with a 2×4) more than Hacksaw Jim Duggan. So he was a natural choice for my little contribution:
Glad to have you join the League Newt! I think Kevin at Team Hellions is going to be happy to have a fellow wrestling fan among our ranks.
Fuck yeah America!
(It had to be done.)
I am so glad to have you in the League. 😉
Hand to Hand. Across the Nation.
(I must break you.)

Reporting as ordered, sir!
all your guys’ entries are so good. It’s going to be hard to match them.
Here is mine! http://www.lifewithfandom.com/2012/06/league-patriotic-pop-culture.html
I’m a little late to the game this week, but here is mine…
Hello League Members! Jason here from Rediscover the 80s. I’m the new kid on the block (no pun intended) and looking forward to being a small part of the League.
Here’s my first contribution about 80s songs included in fireworks shows.
It would have been ok if the pun was intentional. I love terrible puns almost as much as I love the ’80s. Your blog’s got the right stuff!

Airplanes! and America!

Took me long enough to find an answer I was happy with, but the First Avengers saved the day.
“Up and at them!”
Screwed up posting this, sent an e-mail instead. If it’s not to late (which since it’s Monday that’s a yes) but here’s my post anyway.
Nope, you didn’t screw up. I got your email but if you post a comment on the topic page, the rest of the world will see your link before the recap is posted, so you get more bang for your buck by putting up a comment.
