This is yet another reason why Marshawn Lynch rules! Last night at the Nickelodeon’s Kids Choice Sports Awards, the Seahawks were definitely stealing the show! Russell Wilson won “Best Newcomer” (props to Russell for giving a shout out to Seattle Children’s Hospital in his acceptance speech), our fans – the 12’s – won the “Smells Like Team Spirit” award, Earl Thomas was in a fun segment where he got “slimed”…but the highlight was #24! If you missed it…it’s OK…I did too…hell, I don’t even know what channel Nickelodeon is on…the Hawks posted a clip on their Facebook page. Check out Beast Mode making it happen…and getting “slimed”!
Why did Earl get “slimed”? Well he lost in a competition between Larry Fitzgerald of the Cardinals…and was dropped in a “slime tank”. Earl posted some pix and video on his Instagram:
All of the guys above that I mentioned (Earl, Marshawn, Larry, Russell) will be at Richard Sherman’s Celebrity Softball game on Sunday. Get info on the game HERE. I will be there to watch (sadly I was not drafted this season, but I’m working on my swing next year)…some of the other Hawks that will be there include: Richard Sherman (duh), Michael Bennett, Percy Harvin, Pete Carroll, Kam Chancellor, Sidney Rice, and non-Hawks like: Kobe Bryant, Macklemore, Shawn Kemp, and Gary Payton.
Speaking of Richard Sherman…big thanks to Beverly “Mama” Sherman for joining us this morning. Beverly is going to be at Lucky Strike in Bellevue tonight from 7 pm to 9:30 pm -- hosting an evening of family fun. The first 100 guest will receive collectible Campbell Soup Bowls!
Richard and his mom are the new face of the “Momma’s Boy” campaign that Campbell’s Soup does. The commercial should be out soon…check out this fun interview with Richard & Beverly…
