Patriotism looks good on athletes!

In honor of celebrating the fourth of July this past weekend, I am linking up with The Blonder Side of Life today for the Secret Blogger link up that has a special theme of independence!

Ever since a young age, we play sports representing a local business or our town, as we grow up we represent our high schools and colleges, and some even move on to represent their city or state, and the elite ones represent our country.

There is no doubt there is patriotism in sports. So in honor of Independence Day last week, check out some great shots of athletes showing their American pride!

  1. Oh yes I def feel the most Patriotic when sports are involved. I am that girl that gets teary eyed at sporting events when the National Anthem is played (not an embarrassing full out cry, but a goosebumps shiny eyes kinda thing lol)
