The Perfect Football Game

by kalbzayn on February 4, 2008

I had absolutely no interest in the Super Bowl until a few days ago. I’m not really much of a pro football fan, can’t stand the constant commercials, and would rather watch a movie.

Then I heard that the New England Patriots filed for a trademark on the phrase 19-0 THE PERFECT SEASON.

All of the sudden I became a very big Giants fan only to have my dreams crushed with about 2 minutes left and then watched my new favorite last minute drive in the history of the NFL as the Giants came back to win the game in the end.

Congrats Giants.

Anyway, it annoys me to no end that organizations can trademark something so stupid. If they did something like 19-0 The Perfect Patriot’s Season, then that wouldn’t bug me. But something so generic shouldn’t be allowed.

I’m going to trademark something like, “Snow. It’s white” or “Air. I like it.”

So now, they filed for the trademark which doesn’t appear to actually be approved yet. What if they get the trademark and then Dallas or Miami goes undefeated and wins the Super Bowl at 19-0. They won’t be able to make the 19-0 THE PERFECT SEASON t-shirts without paying the Patriots who never even did it. Stupid.

I’m even annoyed now that I’ve been thinking about this for so long.

My vote’s for “Air. I like it.” That’s real catchy.

I hadn’t heard about this, and yeah–that’s really crazy!

“Snow. It’s white” or “Air. I like it.”

heh. You’re funny!

When you can afford to take some time away from tagline writing, I’ve tagged you. ;)
