Seattle Honors The Seahawks

An estimated crowd of 700,000 poured into Seattle yesterday as the Seahawks celebrated the city’s first major sports championship since 1979 (or 2010, if you’re a Storm fan). The biggest news of the day was Russell Wilson taking a shot at the experts who trashed Seattle’s 2012 draft class and Marshawn Lynch taking a shot of Fireball whiskey after snagging a bottle from a fan. All in all, it was a great day for Seattle.


The Craziest Game of the NBA Season

The injury-depleted Lakers faced off against the Cavs last night with just eight healthy bodies. Then Nick Young and Jordan Farmar got injured, bringing the total to six. Chris Kaman fouled out early in the fourth quarter, bringing the total to five. Robert Sacre fouled out with 3:31 left in the game, but according to NBA rules, a team can’t field a lineup of just four players so Sacre was accessed a technical foul each time he committed a personal foul. And more incredibly, the Lakers won the game. SI’s Ben Golliver has a full report.


One Good Thing About Sochi

As the horror stories from Sochi continue, it’s good to hear that safe sex is still being taken seriously. The IOC will distribute 100,000 condoms to the 7,650 athletes participating in the games, which is roughly 13 condoms per athlete. On a related note, here are the 75 hottest athletes in Sochi, as well as the sexiest Olympians from Russia. U.S. skiier Julia Mancuso also has a new photo shoot out for GQ.

Ken Griffey Jr. Baseball Card News

Ken Griffey Jr.‘s rookie card is selling for over $200 on eBay, which could be a good source of profit for the retired outfielder since he owns more than 100 of them.

As Esquire notes, today would have been Bob Marley‘s 69th birthday. In this 2006 photo, Florida sophomore Joakim Noah stands in front of a Marley mural in Gainesville. For more classic sports photos (though don’t know if this qualifies as “classic”), visit the SI Vault on Twitter. While you’re there, follow me on Twitter as well as Extra Mustard.


Odds and Ends

Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel shaved his crazy beard for charity … This is not a place I want to try ice cream … Canadian snowboarders Max Parrot and Sebastian Toutant are still trashing Shaun White … SI may have been a little ambitious with this 1988 predictionRussia blocked a shipment of yogurt to American Olympians … Emily Ratajkowski is now single. She’s also a first-year SI Swimsuit model … Who wants to see Ron Jeremy‘s new movie? Don’t worry. It’s rated PG.

The reggae legend plays soccer with friends.


Baseball With Babe Ruth

Knicks Fan of the Day

This Knicks fan really hates Raymond Felton, and has the YouTube videos to prove it. Put on your headphones because there is a lot of cursing. (HT Uproxx)

I always get a good chuckle every time I see that Star of David with Bob Marley!  As if Haile Selassie was the 225th generation of Solomon 3,000 years later!  Only in Jewish Imperialistic literature and those that blindly follow it could one be so ignorant.  Jewish Imperialists lie to the Jewish people and prey upon their fear and insecurity like wolves to sheep so that they can control the flock and it has been going on for millenniums.  Doubt it, do you?   Then read this :  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyksos  & this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origins_of_the_Hyksos

Those are wikipedia pages, so if or when they take this down you can understand the long arm of Jewish Imperialism.  And PLEASE do not hate someone with Jewish blood just because they have been lied to as well.

And don't blame me for alerting people, I didn't bring religion to this page.

@mosmas2001 @Aaron14  Your right, wikipedia is basically Cliff's notes and that doesn't even contain the half of it.  They found Jacob on the wall which, if you know what you are talking about, tells you all you need to know.
