The Star-Spangled Banner electrified version played by St. Vincent wafts its over the scene of grounds crew creating stencils out of spray paint on astroturf. But instead of marking each team by name, (i.e. Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks) it all says the same thing despite the logo: Team USA. Why? Because it's the Summer Olympics. Nice way to co-opt the Olympics-- a brand that is known for being really persnickety when it comes to other brands who aren't official sponsors.
