Patriots still seeking '19-0' trademark

One certainly can't accuse the New England Patriots of lowering expectations as they head into the 2008 season. From The Smoking Gun:

Three months after their bid for an undefeated season ended with a Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants, the New England Patriots are continuing to pursue trademarks on the phrases "19-0" and "19-0 The Perfect Season," records show. While the team may have been expected to withdraw its applications after finishing at 18-1, a Patriots lawyer recently amended the original filings to correct a typographical error, a clear indication that the organization remains committed to securing the marks (perhaps Bill Belichick & Co. are anticipating perfection in the 2008 season).

This has "karma is a bitch" written all over it. --Jim Buzinski
