I'm just here so I get paid.

The famously press-averse Marshawn Lynch (aka Beast Mode, aka Mr. Why-The-Hell-Wouldn't-You-Give-Me-The-Ball-At-The-1-Yard-Line-In-The-Super-Bowl) has filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to register "I'm just here so I don't get fined" as a corporate trademark belonging to Beast Mode apparel, Lynch's clothing line.

Originally: Seahawks' Marshawn Lynch hilariously stiff-arms reporters' questions 29 times at press conference.

Chris Bevans runs Beast Mode apparel for Lynch (at least someone is running Beast Mode instead of passing), and in an interview he willingly gave to ESPN.com, he said, "We heard from our fans and so many of them were saying that they wanted that phrase on the clothing. This is just listening to the marketplace." In case you think he's exaggerating, consider that Beast Mode is currently sold out of all men's items.
