Now that the Superbowl is over, we in the Seattle area can explain that all those idiots running around with flags showing the number 12 represents the fans—the 12th man on the team. This has become exceedingly obnoxious, with all sorts of posters, banners, flags—even flags on cars. And of course, on jerseys.
Meanwhile, Suzanne Collins already has some trademarks for “District 12,” where Katniss and her family live in The Hunger Games novels. She wants to expand the trademark to clothing, which would probably look cool. The Seahawks tried to stop them.
I like the soundtrack
This was stupid. Obviously, “District 12” has nothing to do with the Seahawks. They can’t trademark the number 12. All they did was delay Suzanne Collins in getting the trademark on clothing.
I can’t know if there were plans for “District 12” clothes this past Christmas, or if they would have sold well if they did, but since the Seahawks have stopped their legal maneuvering, she’ll be free to do so.
