Bart Scott Trademarks ‘Can’t Wait’
Following the Jets’ 28-21 playoff victory vs. the New England Patriots, linebacker Bart Scott blurted out a phrase to Sal-Pal that quickly became iconic. Today he announced that he now owns the phrase.
Today Bart Scott announced on ESPN’s “First Take” that he has bought the rights to the phrase ‘Can’t Wait’ which he made famous a few months ago. Bart appeared on the show this morning and said:
“It took on a life of its own, it really took off on ESPN, it took over on YouTube. My wife said, ‘You should trademark it.’ Once I started to hear people were trying to make T-shirts, I said, ‘I tell you what, if anybody is going to benefit off ‘Can’t Wait’, it should be me.’ ”
