An Indianapolis-area Baptist church planned to cheer on their Colts with a big party, but made the mistake of mentioning their big TV and the licensed words “super bowl” on their website. The NFL quickly stepped in.
According to league officials, it’s copyright infringement to display the super, er, “big game” on a screen larger than 55 inches–which the church planned to do using a video projector.
Should I laugh or cry? Not sure, but you’ve been warned. Serve soup or chili at your church event and call it a “souper bowl” event just to be on the safe side. And cite your television’s measurements in centimeters.
The No Fun League nickname earned again. At least I have last year’s memories of my beloved Steelers‘ victory.
