Former Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins turned "You Like That!” into a rallying cry when he was in Washington.
Now, as the quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings, he is making the phrase special for his new team.
Cousins filed an official trademark on the phrase "You Vike That!" with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on Thursday.
That means the phrase could be used on hats, shirts… You name it.
Washington fans will remember where the popular catch phrase came from.
Cousins threw three second half touchdown passes to bring the Redskins back from 24-0 deficit to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 31-30, in 2015.
It was the largest comeback in franchise history, and Cousins threw for 317 yards during it. He completed the game-winning touchdown pass to Jordan Reed with 28 seconds left — and then stormed into the locker room.
“YOU LIKE THAT,” Cousins shouted in the FedEx Field tunnel. “YOU. LIKE. THAT.”
Turns out he was yelling at our own Tarik El-Bashir at the time.
I was cracking up. I took it as, "Are you not entertained?" https://t.co/v77TBqKNJr— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) October 25, 2015
And, for the record, I was very entertained.— Tarik El-Bashir (@Tarik_ElBashir) October 25, 2015
And the rest is history.
