Bart Scott trademarks 'can't wait'

Bart Scott is a savvy business man. That’s why the Jets linebackers shrewdly trademarked the phrase “can’t wait!” after it became a somewhat popular quote this past postseason.

After his team’s upset divisional round victory over the Patriots, Scott did an interview with ESPN in which he ranted about how soft the Patriots were. Sal Paolantonio asked Scott about facing the Steelers in the AFC title game. That’s when Scott bellowed the now-trademarked words.

"It took on a life of its own," Scott said on Friday. "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.'”

It takes a confident individual to stake claim to a phrase as common and storied as “can’t wait”. Scott explained Friday that, just before the original “can’t wait” interview, he had been verbally sparring with the Patriots’ mascot seconds beforehand. He was then approached by a Jets PR rep. “(The PR rep) should've known I wasn't in the right frame of mind," Scott said.

You can see the origins of “can’t wait” below. (The rant leading up to the phrase makes for great theater.)
