Johnny Manziel’s Trademarks

Here is a list of trademarks filed by once-suspended and new Browns player Johnny “Football” Manziel:

JOHNNY FOOTBALL, JMAN2, JMAN, MANZIIEL, JIIM, JFF, THE HOUSE THAT JOHNNY BUILT

If you were wondering whether “The House That Johnny Built” was part of an obligatory NFL-star charity that builds houses for people, think again. It’s for:

Athletic apparel, namely, shirts, pants, jackets, footwear, hats and caps, athletic uniforms; Athletic footwear; Athletic pants; Athletic shirts; Athletic shoes; Athletic shorts; Athletic skirts; Athletic tights; Athletic uniforms; Clothing for athletic use, namely, padded elbow compression sleeves being part of an athletic garment; Clothing for athletic use, namely, padded pants; Clothing for athletic use, namely, padded shirts; Clothing for athletic use, namely, padded shorts; Clothing, namely, athletic sleeves; Footwear for track and field athletics; Gloves for apparel; Short-sleeved or long-sleeved t-shirts; T-shirts; T-shirts for men, women and children; Women’s athletic tops with built-in bras

Can’t forget those built-in bras!

Take a look at the trademark for “Johnny Football” and you’ll see it’s pretty clear you’ll hear radio ads for motivational speaking engagements in the near future:

Educational and entertainment services, namely, providing motivational and educational speakers; Educational and entertainment services, namely, providing motivational and educational speakers in the field of self- and personal improvement; Entertainment and educational services in the nature of competitions in the field of entertainment, education, culture, sports, and other non-business and non-commercial fields; Entertainment in the nature of football games; Entertainment services, namely, participation in football games; Entertainment services, namely, personal appearances by a sports celebrity.

At least he’s preparing for a future as a QB chewed up and spit out by Cleveland.

How I feel about the “real refs” coming back

This is how I feel:

I’m from Cleveland, so I don’t like the real refs one bit. They suck.

So, I’m writing a book about the Browns

Friends,
I have embarked on a between-job project of writing a book examining why the Browns left Cleveland. As a fifth grader at the time, I’ve lived the past 15+ years misunderstanding the whole ordeal. The truth is tough for Clevelanders to accept: we played a considerable role. Don’t worry, I am still looking for a full time gig in Washington, but this is a good focus for me during the day.
I’ll let you know when it becomes ready to be published in the Amazon.com Kindle store. Stay tuned to this page for more updates!

A Cleveland Browns Exchange

UPDATE: I found, called, and spoke to Mr. Cox by phone today for a while during my lunch hour. The letters are indeed real. He remains a loyal Browns fan.

Deadspin and the Cleveland Scene report the following letter exchange. As a frequent  letter writer, I admire Mr. Bailey’s brevity and am surprised by his candor.
