NFL’S JASON PIERRE-PAUL POSTS GRAPHIC PIC OF HAND TO WARN OF FIREWORK DANGER – Maxim, 2018/07/04

I am a “risk versus rewards” type of guy. I don’t mess with them because the risk of this type of injury is too high for the minutes of enjoyment you get out of it. I will leave the fireworks to the experts.

Please be safe out there today.

 


The Feds get in on the act… in 2017 – 8 deaths and 12,900 injuries were reported from fireworks incidents.
