Congrats In Advance To GQ On Its Pulitzer

Independence Day has already long been my favorite religious American holiday, as I don’t think a three-day weekend can get much better than grilled meat, fireworks, and booze. All it’s really missing is football. To think, if the pilgrims had stopped in Tennessee on their way to have Thanksgiving dinner with the Native Americans, then we wouldn’t even be having this conversation.

Alas, I digress. The 4th of July does, in fact, get better as GQ’s upcoming cover shows us with the reigning With Leather Celebrity Sports Fan of the Year, Kate Upton, showing off her love of America. Although, I’m wondering if those Astro Pop calories are a good thing for her, what with some people thinking she’s a little too curvy.

Here, let me offer up a healthier alternative cover…

BIG UPDATE: The full shoot is available now on, and it is epic. Be sure to check it out.
