I hate to be "That Guy" . . . but maybe you should just let the professionals handle the fireworks shows Thursday.

A hospital in Seattle just did a study on fireworks injuries and found some pretty crazy stats on just how dangerous they are.  Check 'em out . . .

1.  Approximately 10,500 Americans go to the hospital every year for fireworks injuries.

2.  The average accident involves a man in his 20s, and three-quarters of them wind up with burns.

3.  But plenty of them wind up with more serious problems.  59% have soft tissue injuries . . . 43% have a fracture . . . 23% lose at least one finger . . . and 14% have an eye injury where they lose some or all of their vision.
