Jeweler must refund 2 weeks of purchases after Memphis' Tony Pollard's kick return TD

Did you catch Memphis' Tony Pollard's kick return touchdown?


Yeah, well...Robert Irwin Jeweler owner Howie Knopf promised refunds to anyone who bought something between Aug. 14 and Aug. 30 if the Tigers' football team returned its opening kickoff of a half for a touchdown.

"I was like, 'Holy exclamation point,' and my phone started blowing up," Knopf said. "It's really cool. We have insurance."

Ah, and it gets even more interesting. Mark Giannotto and Geoff Calkins report, "This promotion, however, might have been in violation of the university's intellectual rights. A source with direct knowledge of the situation told The Commercial Appeal that Memphis sent a cease and desist letter to Knopf, but Robert Irwin Jeweler continued running the promotion."

Oh well...
