    American figure skater Ashley Wagner describes teammate Jason Brown as "the most patriotic man I have ever met."

    He showed why at the women's short program Wednesday night.

    The 19-year-old from Chicago sat in the athletes' section of the stands wearing the following ensemble:

    • A U.S. hockey jersey
    • Red, blue and star-shaped Mardi Gras beads
    • Blue, oversized, star-shaped glasses
    • A stars and stripes baseball cap with a metallic red, white and blue pompom on top and two mini American flags sticking out of it

    He waved another flag and pompom.

    Brown, who finished ninth in the men's competition in his Olympic debut, was cheering on the U.S. trio of Wagner, Polina Edmunds and Gracie Gold.
