The 2014 Olympics have begun and sports fans are tuning into the winter events hosted in Sochi, Russia. Events such as snowboarding, alpine skiing, figure skating and hockey provide entertainment for viewers of varying interests, with the Olympics quickly becoming a family event in homes around the world.

The top-notch Olympic athletes that represent the United States have a unique way of bringing Americans together. It is not unusual to find a viewer mouthing the words to America the Beautiful as an Olympian hurtles through the air on skis or holding their breath as a young athlete lands their triple axel.

There is simply no sport fandom more American than the camaraderie amongst fans cheering on the United States Olympians. USA! USA! USA!
