NEW YORK — Americans have always liked rooting for the home team, but in recent months marketers have really taken to pushing those all-American athletes in their marketing programs.
The goal is to drive brand awareness and increase sales in the the U.S., and with post-9/11 nationalism still strong, sports marketers are turning to home-grown athletes to show their red, white and blue spirit.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
