NFL punts in “Big game”

The NFL is a lot of things, but I never thought it was stupid. It turns out that it isn’t. The Sports Blognfl.jpg reports:

Remember that stupid effort by the NFL to trademark the phrase “Big Game,” even though everyone knows the phrase has, for more than a century, been used referring to the Cal-Stanford rivalry?

Well, the NFL has dropped its bid.

Smart.

UPDATE:  “Repeat after me: TRADEMARKS ARE NOT “WORD PATENTS”
