Fourth of July Weekend Marathons

4 Jul

note:  I thought I posted this earlier today, but it went to the wrong blog.  Apologies if you missed anything crucial.


Wondering what you’re going to do this Fourth of July while you’re waiting for it to get dark enough for the fireworks shows, or while you’re sitting in the emergency room behind seventy-five drunk guys who blew their fingers off thinking they could aim the bottle rocket at the neighbor’s cat with more precision if they just held the glass coke bottle?

We here at Fat Guys have the answer: Why not try a marathon?  Many communities have patriotic-themed run/walks.  Ellisville, the home of Fat Guys North (at least for a few more weeks) has one starting at 7:30 a.m.  But, since we’re fat guys, that’s too way too early, and way too much work.  So we’ll opt for another hallowed tradition:  The Holiday tv marathon.

Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on your perspective), with the hundreds of television channels available to the modern fat guy, there is a plethora of choices, beginning today and continuing all weekend.  Also fortunately, since we’d much rather let someone else do the heavy lifting, the great site TV Tango has put together a list of 428 marathons coming to you over the next five days.  Check it out at
