Today I ate a Totino's CrispCrust Party Pizza (that's a mouthful) for lunch. The box advertised a football-themed contest. "Score a Day with the World Champs!" it reads. The grand prize is to 'Hang out with Coach Brian Billick and members of his team for autographs and a photo op! Experience a Saturday team practice on the field. On Sunday, you'll receive 4 exclusive pre-game field passes and 4 tickets to sit in the Club Section during the game! After the game, your 2 locker room passes will let you hang out with the team one last time.' At no point is the team identified, by name or with a logo. Now, I know the NFL is very protective of its team's logos since they're copyrighted material, but the team names? What obscure law prevents the packaging from saying the team's name? (PS: Good pizza for seventy-five cents.)
