Chris Cooley Adds Pizzazz to Horse Burning

In case you missed it in late June, Redskins tight end Chris Cooley posted a few images on his blog about a dead animal (first thought to be a cow, but was actually a horse) that the Cooley boys lit on fire in an effort to dispose of it. And before you get all up in arms about animal cruelty it's evidently completely OK to do in order to prevent disease from spreading. So yeah, we're all good, right? ↵

↵Really, this could be the beginning of a beautiful thing for next year's Fourth of July celebration. "Chris Cooley's Meat Sparklers" is the name I'm thinking of at the moment. It combines grilling with explosions. Find a choice cut of meat, attach it to your fireworks and the explosion actually cooks the meat. My friends, that is America. ↵
