In addition to being an important day to honor the men and women of the U.S. armed forces who have given the ultimate sacrifice, today holds another important distinction as the official beginning of the American lawn chair season.
I like to think of it as opening day for Major League Lawn Chairing, a sport in which the longer you stay stationary in a webbed chair, the more points you score. To play at a high level you are going to need some help, and by help I mean a cooler and a strong supply of beers. It should be noted, that the USA made Coleman steel belted 54 quart cooler is the only official MLLC sanctioned temperature control device.
The American lawn chair is an often overlooked cultural icon. The world of outdoor seating has changed dramatically over the years, technological advances have led to chairs that don’t leave strange marks on your legs, cup holders (known as “beer holders” in MLLC circles) have become standard features and seating material trends have basically led to the near elimination of webbing as a chair base.
Many people these days think they need a chair that has straps which allow it to be worn as a backpack, but thankfully one patriotic American company in Walthourville, GA knows that it is un-American to sit in anything other than a metal and webbed seat. Should you be at a BBQ, observing fireworks, at the beach, or simply alone in your yard admiring your mowing skills the good people at Lawn Chair LLC have you covered with a variety of U.S. made lawn chairs. Buying one of these classic American seating devices (not to mention a six pack or three) is the equivalent of being drafted into the greatest sport in the world.
