Traditional American costume

It's the AUS Global Day time of year again, which means that Magdalena's school sent home a note asking for her to come dressed in her country's native costume today. As an American, I have a hard time coming up with something good for days like this. Last year, I dug up some cowboy boots for Miriam and her teacher donated a cowboy hat to the ensemble. This year, I found something vaguely red and white and blue and stripe-y for Magdalena:

And then I face-painted some stars on her to complement the effect.

Her school also asked me what our national sport and national food were. I answered baseball (much to my chagrin), and apple pie. Did I get it right?

Yes, those are (in my opinion the cliched) American sport/food. However, they are not the most popular. I would say that it is now football (American... not futbol)and hamburgers.

I thought the exact same thing Julee did...although in the month of March I think it is safe to say College Basketball :)

How about hamburgers, fries, then couch potato-ing for the sport?

I've always thought hotdogs were an American thing. And I agree with julee that American "football" is probably the most popular. They don't play that anywhere else but here, right? I can't believe how big Magdalena is!

Hamburgers and hot dogs, of course! DUH. Oh well.

I thought about putting football but then I thought it might be confused with futbol, so I didn't. Basketball would have been a good choice this month...
