I was watching the Missouri/Florida game earlier, and All-American blogger "Iam4Mizzou" came to mind; ("Iam4Mizzou" is really a St. Louis attorney named Richard Lozano - a funny Mizzou fan, and a pretty smart guy.)
Some on here may remember this guy. But for those who don't, back in October, 11W had a funny little Buckshot ( http://www.elevenwarriors.com/buckshot/2012/10/firepinkelcom ), featuring www.FirePinkel.com, which is owned by Lozano. He also owns, (or owned), the rights to http://missouritigers.com/blog.php, which is not working anymore.
Under that first link, you can see some of the internet gold he's posted - which unfortunately isn't up anymore on the missouritigers site, but I copied & pasted some of his stuff on that Buckshots piece.
But, after I found that missouritigers.com is not working anymore, I searched "Iam4Mizzou" and came across this gem of a story. Apparently Lozano beat the University of Missouri to the punch a while back and is the original owner of the domain: missouritigers.com. Well, the U of M threatened to sue him, and it's a long story. But, now I think he finally sold the website or the legal process has taken place, because it's not up anymore. Anyways, in that article I found a letter to the University of Missouri which Lozano published. He demanded $50k in addition to the following terms (yes, this is real life) for the rights to his domain name:
" ■Every February 5th is Iam4Mizzou Day at the University of Missouri. This will be recognized officially and an email will be sent out from the chancellor's office wishing everyone Happy Iam4Mizzou Day with adequate enthusiasm. When asked about the meaning of this day, officials are to defensively respond "no comment" and change the subject.
■New president Gary Forsee will use the word "thunderdome" in his next press conference in a confusing, inappropriate way.
■The three university amigos cc'd on the cease and desist letter will be photographed together wearing missouritigers.com Kitty logo shirts. I said Kittyâ„¢ logo All Rights Reserved Property of ME.
■I get to take a half court shot at a men's basketball game for absolutely no reason.
■I get to drive the Mizzou helmet car through campus recklessly and will run over a variety of bushes in a wanton fashion.
■I will get a gold star with Iam4Mizzou on it on a bathroom stall at Faurot. "
