Trademarks based in public random events need to die. And people who apply for them need to burn.

You buy a sports team, trademark away. Have a squirrel appear on the field? fark your trademark.

I remember the Rally Monkey, rally caps, rally cars, Rally bars, and Raleigh, NC.. but I don't remember a rally squirrel.

I don't remember the rally squirrel, but I bet this could kick its ass:

I'd hire Squirrel Girl.

/To be a nanny to my kids.
//After she has them.
///I'm saying I would pay her to have sex.
////Is, I guess, the take away from this conversation.

But trademark experts predicted that the Cardinals would object to the application. And so they have.

Causality does not work that way!

Do the Red Sox have anything similar?
"Rally Clam" or something?

squirrels make poor rally drivers driving slowly

"The club also noted that it quickly began marketing Rally Squirrel merchandise, including rally towels that were handed out to 40,000 fans at a National League Championship Series game. And it sold T-shirts in its team store with the slogan "Got Squirrel."

No word on if the Cardinals had permission to use the 'Got ______' tagline from National Dairy Association.

Is this really an issue? It can't be a copyright issue. And, don't have a great understanding of trademark, but my idea of it has been that trademark is really more about protecting the public from misunderstanding, which doesn't seem likely with Got Squirrel? Hmm.

I have a MLB Genuine Merchandise Rally Squirrel t shirt from the 2011 season. It is my "lucky" post season shirt, I only wear it when the Cardinals need the win. In 2012 it didn't work, but was 2-0 this season in the NLDS. Hope I don't need it for the Series.

Its only crazy if it doesn't work!
