Damn he foiled my plan.  Instead of doing Movember again this year I was going to start Feb-brow-ary to raise money for myself.  It would have been huge.

Is this a real quote or a typo?
Said Davis: “I might have a commercial where I’m acting like I’m shaving it and then throw I’ll the razor down.”

Dear 11W,
I am an attorney representing Mr. Jim Bollman. Please cease and desist all references to Walrus®, which my client recently trademarked.
Also, we are informing the public that any attempts to put on extra weight, grow a handlebar mustache, and/or otherwise appear to be like a Walrus® are forbidden. 
Sincerely,
Christopher Cicero, Esq.

Who else should apply to trademark their physical features?
A race between Polamalu and Clay Matthews to see which one can trademark Hair® first? The first one to the trademark office will ensure that, henceforth, all hippies must pay Polamalu/Matthews a royalty.
Danica Patrick could trademark numerous things, including 43rd Place®.
Greg Oden has something he could trademark.

Hahaha. Danica should trademark the phrase "she's improved so much."

Is this guy for real? As if someone can get sued for not grooming their eye browls.

What if you're like me and already had a unibrow before anyone even knew who Anthony Davis was?

I have some attorney friends.  I think I will be looking into trademarking my shoulder hair.  Geico is SOOOOOOOOOOO busted.

Makers Mark came out with a collector's bottle in early May for UK.  It was a Makers 46 bottle with blue and white wax.  The bottle was about 30 bucks.  Knowing UK fans will buy anything, and being that only 9000 were released I ran out and bought one.  I knew I could turn a quick profit.  That afternoon I heard that Davis was going to be at the Florence Mall signing autographs for 50 bucks.  I thought ya know what, I put 80 into this bottle I can get a lot more back. So, I went and got his autograph on the bottle.  It was strictly business for me, but for some it was a really big deal and they were extremely happy to mee him(a week before he was at the same mall but a different store signing for 80 bucks an autograph)
Anyway, I get close to the front of the line and people were telling him how happy they were to meet him and how awesome he is, and how he's their favorite wildcat ever.  There were little kids getting all excited, and he really said nothing to anyone.  He was very soft spoken so maybe he's kind of shy, but I think he was just trying to crank as many people through as possible so he could get out of there as quick as possible.  I just thought he was a total D-bag about it all, and this big of news reinforces that. 
Those guys where making money hand over fist though, he was getting 80 for a good 3 weeks and they were selling 500 tickets per signing, and the players got all that money.  Gilchrest was getting 70, and I know Darius Miller charged 20.  From what I understand he was the nicest of them all.  He's from Kentucky though so he kind of gets it.  He was one of those kids standing in line in 96 and 98. If I were a UK fan though, and I waited in line for 2 hours and didn't even get a smile out of the guy when he signed my poster or basketball or liquor bottle, I would of been pissed.  Instead, I had 80 bucks invested in a bottle of booze and sold it for 300!
