U.S. PATENT OFFICE CANCELS REDSKINS TRADEMARK REGISTRATION
The U.S. Patent Office ruled Wednesday that the Washington Redskins nickname is “disparaging of Native Americans” and that the team’s federal trademarks for the name must be canceled.
The 2-1 ruling comes after a campaign to change the name gained momentum over the past year. The team doesn’t immediately lose trademark protection and is allowed to retain it during an appeal, which is likely.

Redskins owner Dan Snyder has refused to change the team’s name, citing tradition, but there has been growing pressure including statements in recent months from President Barack Obama, lawmakers of both parties and civil rights groups.
The decision means that the team can continue to use the Redskins name, but it would lose a significant portion of its ability to protect the financial interests connected to its use. If others printed the name on sweatshirts, apparel, or other team material, it becomes more difficult to go after groups who use it without permission.
The case involves six registered trademarks that involve the use of the word Redskins, but it does not apply to the team’s logo.
The decision by the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board is similar to one it issued in 1999. That ruling was overturned in 2003 in large part on a technicality after the courts decided that the plaintiffs should have filed their complaint soon after the Redskins registered their nickname in 1967.
The new case was launched in 2006 by a younger group of Native Americans, and was heard by the board in March of last year.
The group argued that the Redskins should lose their federal trademark protection based on a law that prohibits registered names that are disparaging, scandalous, contemptuous or disreputable.
In Washington, lawmakers have pushed for a name change. In May, half of the Senate wrote letters to the NFL urging the team to change its name.
"Daniel Snyder may be the last person in the world to realize this, but it’s just a matter of time until he is forced to do the right thing and change the name," said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who has said previously he will not attend home games until the team changes its name.

  • Father’s Day 6/15/14
    CARDINALS 5 NATIONALS 2
    Matt Adams homers for 3rd straight day as Cardinals swat Nats
    Associated Press

    ST. LOUIS — Matt Adams might want to have his father’s visit last longer.

    Adams homered for the third straight game — all with his father in attendance — and Matt Holliday also went deep, helping the St. Louis Cardinals to a 5-2 victory and series sweep Sunday over the Washington Nationals.

    Adams gave St. Louis a 2-0 lead in the second inning with a two-run shot on an 0-2 pitch, his sixth homer of the season. Adams’ father, Jamie, has been visiting from Pennsylvania on Father’s Day weekend.

    "Unfortunately, he’s going to go home," Adams said.

    There were going to meet before Adams’ father left for the airport.

    "He might give me a big hug and start crying," Adams said. "He’s an emotional guy."

    Adams has homered in all three games since coming off the disabled list with a torn calf muscle.

    Holliday put St. Louis up 3-0 in the third with his fifth home run.

    St. Louis manager Mike Matheny never doubted his sluggers would start to hit the long ball after a slow start. The Cardinals are last in the National League in homers.

    "We’ve been saying for months now these guys have done that," Matheny said. "It’s not a surprise. It’s not like these guys have never hit any home runs in their lives. I think that everybody just thought that we were either brainwashing them not to hit home runs or else they all lost it collectively and both of them are ridiculous."

    Last year, Adams had 17 homers in 108 games and Holliday had 22 in 141 games.

    "We knew that our power didn’t go anywhere," Adams said. "We knew the type of hitters we are. We go out there on daily basis and grind through our at-bats."

    Jaime Garcia (3-0) pitched seven innings, allowing five hits and a run for St. Louis. He struck out six and walked two. Trevor Rosenthal got the final out for his 20th save.

    Washington’s Doug Fister (5-2) had his five-start winning streak snapped. He pitched six innings, allowing seven hits and four runs.

    "The two home runs were the biggest things for me," Fister said. "I need to find a better effort."

    St. Louis has won 12 of the last 14 regular-season meetings with Washington. The Nationals are 2-18 in the newest version of Busch Stadium.

    "We have a bitter taste in our mouths going home," Nationals outfielder Scott Hairston said. "I think we definitely didn’t play up to our capabilities."

    The Nationals loaded the bases in three innings, stranded 10 runners and scored on two bases loaded walks.

    The timely hit didn’t come for Washington.

    "It’s the ebbs and flows of the game," Washington manager Matt Williams said. "It’s that time of the year where heavy legs start to set in a little bit."

    Garcia pitched out of a one-out, bases-loaded jam in the second. Third baseman Matt Carpenter caught Sandy Leon’s grounder on a short hop and threw out Hairston at home. Garcia then struck out Fister.

    Jayson Werth drew a bases loaded walk in the fifth to cut the lead to 3-1.

    "I didn’t have my best stuff today but at the same time you go out there and you compete," Garcia said. "You battle and you keep your team in the game."

    St. Louis got the run back in the fifth, when Kolten Wong snapped an 0-for-16 skid with a leadoff triple and scored on a sacrifice fly by Holliday, who has 999 RBIs in his career.

    Craig doubled home Holliday in the seventh for a 5-1 lead.

    Rosenthal walked pinch-hitter Adam LaRoche in the ninth with the bases loaded to make it 5-2.

    Game notes

    Reliever Carlos Martinez will make his second career start Monday when the Cardinals host the New York Mets. Martinez is taking the start in place of Adam Wainwright (elbow). … Before Sunday’s game, the Cardinals purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Nick Greenwood from Triple-A Memphis and optioned outfielder Randal Grichuk back to the affiliate. … After starting 1,114 MLB games at third base, and 12 in left field, Ryan Zimmerman started Sunday at first base for the Nationals. … Washington’s Danny Espinosa was hit by a pitch in the second inning, the eighth time this season. … Washington CF Denard Span was scratched from the lineup due to back stiffness and replaced by Nate McLouth. … St. Louis native boxer Devon Alexander threw out the first pitch. Alexander (25-2 with 14 knockouts) is a former WBC and IBF light welterweight champion and a former IBF welterweight champion. He has a welterweight fight against Robert Guerrero (31-2-1) on June 21. … Randy Choate’s one-pitch win in Saturday’s game made him the sixth pitcher in Cardinals history to throw one pitch and record a victory.

    Jim Carrey delivered a very inspiring commencement speech to Maharishi University of Management’s class of 2014. He reveals how his late father inspired him to follow his dreams.

    That advice - to chase your dreams - is true for every single one of us. Nothing is certain in this world, which means you have to face adversity head on. In our world, that means no matter what obstacles life throws at you, you have to stand tall, dig in and SPARTAN UP

    Chase life. Run a Spartan Race
