We hate to admit it but, some days we just need a like Rebecca Black in our life. Granted, those days are mostly Fridays, but we feel her exceptional lyrical prowess is the only thing that can truly convey our enthusiasm when we make it to the end of the week. Many a time, you may catch us regretfully singing, “It’s Friday, Friday, gotta get down on Friday.” But you won’t find us staying in this weekend. We’ve got everything from more World Cup viewer enjoyment at Chucktown BikeDown to Friday Night Cookouts, so go ahead and you get down.
