Athletes Who Love America

The United States' World Cup run is over, but what better reason is there to keep stoking that Stars and Stripes fervor than the anniversary of America's independence? 

The Fourth of July, like the World Cup and Olympic Games, is the one occasion when it's socially acceptable to gird your loins with Old Glory ( an image of the flag, not the actual flag) and get ripped with family, friends and neighbors.

Patriotism is essentially the act of rooting for Team America, so patriotism and sports are an awesome combination. 

And with the exception of men's soccer, being a fan of Team America usually means being the fan of a champion.

American athletes, like a lot of us, showed their patriotic side during the World Cup by decking themselves out in flag swag and posting pics on Instagram. 

These athletes love America—and if you begin to hear a faint chant of "USA, USA, USA!..." in your head, don't try to fight it...join in.
