Patent office sacks Brady's bid for 'Tom Terrific' trademark

BOSTON (AP) It's settled: Tom Seaver is "Tom Terrific," not Tom Brady.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected Brady's application to take control of the nickname on Thursday, ruling that it "points uniquely and unmistakably to Tom Seaver."

It adds that giving Brady a trademark for "Tom Terrific" might lead people to conclude the Hall of Fame pitcher endorses any products, rather than the New England Patriots quarterback.
