The Thing On TV On Sunday Between, Uh, That Team And, Uh, The Other Ones


You know how the NFL polices the mark SUPER BOWL, as in, a store can’t say ‘Your Super Bowl Party Headquarters,’ because, you know, people would be confused.
So stores would say “Your Big Game Headquarters” or “Buy some snacks for your Big Game Party”?
Well, check out this pending trademark application, currently in the opposition period:
