18-1 and nobody can take that from us…. 19-0 is a sad dream

Ok, I can finally talk about it… perhaps that will help me get over it.

At the Superbowl, I had a great time hanging out with some Giants fans before the game. It was a pretty good crowd, and everyone got along.

The only people with whom I exchanged an unkind word were two Pats fans who walked in wearing 19-0 shirts.

You do not anger the gods like that… (nor do you disrespect a team that frankly looks a lot like the 2001 Patriots).

Back before the gods stopped punishing the Sox, I used to say “we’re the 1918 World Champs, and nobody can ever take that from us.”

I guess that I can now say that the Patriots went 18-1, and nobody can ever take that away from us.

I’d like to send a big ass-hat award to Bob Kraft for angering the football gods by filing a trademark application for 19-0 , the perfect season.. (Thank you for the correction, Bob). That was as stupid as the Steelers reserving their hotel rooms in New Orleans before the 2001 AFC Championship game.

If anyone has one of those flashy things that they used on Men In Black, I’d like to borrow it to erase all memories of Feb. 3, 2008.

And for cryin’ out loud, will people STOP saying that the Pats tried to patent or copyright 19-0? It was a trademark registration. There is a big difference.

Ugh… congratulations to the Giants… they earned it. Nobody believed in them, nobody believed in their QB, they fought the whole way on the road, and the Patriots didn’t come out and play them like they respected them. The Patriots deserved that loss. And if this is the football equivalent of the 1986 World Series, Matt Light is the new Bill Buckner. That stupid bum missed way too many blocks all post-season and played like a drunk rookie in the Superbowl. Well, not just then… pretty much for as long as I have watched him act like a turnstile instead of a left tackle.

“The false start saved our life. Every now and then you win one.” – Matt Light after the Baltimore Ravens game (source)

Yeah, every now and then. Of course, every other time you screw us. If Belichick doesn’t cut Light in the off season, I’m not wearing my Pats jersey on opening day.

Okay, there, I talked about it. Can everyone shut up now?

    Actually, it isn’t a trademark application either. It’s a trademark REGISTRATION application. You don’t file “for” a trademark, and you don’t “get” a trademark by filing. You have a trademark if you have adopted a word or phrase or image and USED it as a trademark. And if you’ve done that, then you’re entitled (but not required) to apply to have the mark federally registered. But even if you don’t register it, it’s still a trademark. You know this stuff, Marco. Have a better weekend this time.

    Yes, uncle Bob…. you’re right! :)

    Here in New York, I feel your pain.

  3. […] Bobby Knight. Professor Randazza mocks the Patriots over their trademark application for “19-0.” Gene Quinn saw it too. Marty points out they’ve got three years to file that […]

  4. Hello. I stumbled across your site while I was searching for something else. While I do not agree with some of what you said we do have almost the same thoughts for the most part. I have bookmarked your blog and may visit again in the near future to see what you’re blogging about in 2010!

  5. 2010 Update – still no trademark registration issued from the application.

  6. As somebody who enjoys to consume seafood, for certain I will now must wonder to myself, if it has been affected at all by any of the oil spill? Unfortunately, I fail to experience that the government is truly being completely straightforward with the people. I really feel they are reducing the critical impact that this oil spill will have on our food supply. Yet another key concern that I’ve is what will take place if a hurricane hits the gulf of Mexico? Why don’t we presume that a hurricane equivalent in potency to hurricane Katrina, was to hit the gulf of Mexico, wouldn’t that program suck up all of the oil and send it right across the land? Wouldn’t that result in a tragic damages?
