So let's address the Washington Bravehearts situation. TMZSports reported Friday that a man named Aris Mardirossian registered the name, WASHINGTON BRAVEHEARTS earlier this month. According to the trademark application, the name was designed for "Entertainment in the nature of football games." Now the twist: Mardirossian happens to be the neighbor of Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder. Did Snyder have a change of heart -- BRAVEHEART, if you will -- about his team's controversial nickname? Did he enlist a neighbor to front a stealthy name-change scheme designed to operate beneath the perview of John Q. Public? Well, probably not. Redskins spokesman Tony Wyllie is telling anyone who will listen that Snyder and Madirossian are not in cahoots. The spokesman says Snyder doesn't even know the neighbor.
