Wake up and breathe it in. You again found yourself in the greatest country in the world… AND┬áhonestly, what a time to be alive – March freaking Madness!!

Does any other country have this glorious a tradition? I don’t think so. Does Canada? Nope – sorrey! Only in America, and that is one of many reasons we remain #1.

Now, this week’s National Anthem is from the 2011 Final Four National Anthem sung by Leann Rimes before UConn and Butler went at it (#tbt am I right?!). So let’s rise and remove those hats for the best way to start off our weeks – the singing of the National Anthem.

Leann absolutely crushes it. Gotta love it.

Also, shoutout to our girl Kiki for the killer cover photo for today’s Merica Monday. She’s from the University of Tampa and when we saw this picture, we just knew she was a great American and would be a perfect cover girl for Merica Monday. Also, if you want, and boy oh boy are you going to want to, you can follow her at crrisalmeida on Instagram – ten out of ten follow if I do say so myself.

Alright, well let’s get after it this week Patriots!



Merica – Love it or Leave it,
