DARREN ROVELL fires up a projector, as a generic rendition of the Star Spangled Banner begins playing.
♫ Oh say can you see…♫
♫ What so proudly we hailed…♫
♫ At the twilight’s last gleaming…♫
♫ Whose broad stripes and bright stars…♫
♫ Through the perilous fight (The NFL is a proud partner of the US Military)…♫
♫ O’er the ramparts we watched…♫
♫ Were so gallantly streaming…♫
♫ And the rockets’ red glare…♫
♫ The bombs bursting in air…♫
♫ Gave proof through the night…♫
♫ That our flag was still there…♫
♫ Oooh say does that star spangled banner…♫
♫ Yet wave…♫
♫ O’er the land of the free…♫
♫ And the home of the brave!♫
