The week in social media photos: June 30-July 6

This week offered us two opportunities to celebrate America. First it was the USMNT in Brazil. They came up a goal short, but kept the nation on the edge of its seat all Cup long. Then it was America's birthday, July 4th. I hope yours was safe and thoroughly enjoyed. As you'll see in the following, the entire conference wished you the same. The week:

Did you get to take in some fireworks this Fourth? I did. It's my favorite.

Speaking of fireworks, I kinda love that the Utes go ahead and make their own.

OK, so this isn't quite Americana or fireworks per se, but it's quite a boom from former 'Cat Nick Johnson.

Of note, Ralphie is an American Bison.

The first of a few flag-bearing posts. I love the iconic image of the waving flag.

Here's Butch – who is usually waving one of the most well traveled flags in college sports – celebrating with the star spangled banner.

Oski doesn't make an appearance, but he too got in on the flag Americana.

But perhaps no mascot touted as big a flag as The Duck.

Maybe an 8 clap is in order?

I thought this was a great campaign by USC, celebrating both the U.S. and those who protect it.

Should we call these their independence lids? Freedom tops?

The Sun Devils get a little punny here...
