IOC Bans USA Goaltender's Mask For Olympics

The International Olympic Committee is requiring Team USA women’s hockey goalie Jessie Vetter to remove an inscription bearing “We the People” on her custom mask before the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
The reference from the U.S. Constitution is seen by the IOC as “propaganda” promoting the United States over other countries, according to Ron Slater, the mask’s artist. He also makes custom masks for NHL players.
