LOOK: Richard Sherman goes yard at charity softball game
Blanket Coverage: The Richard Sherman Family Foundation is excited to present its 3rd Annual Charity Dinner and Auction. 100% of all net proceeds from this year's event will go directly to Blanket Coverage. With proceeds from last year's dinner and softball game, Blanket Coverage donated $62,500 in $2,500 incremental gifts, to 25 different nonprofits. Over the holidays we provided 25 Seattle-area families in need with gifts and a holiday experience for the whole family with several Seahawks players at the Seahawks facility. Finally we were able to provide hundreds of backpacks and school supplies to students in Washington state including many of the victims of the Carlton Complex fire in eastern Washington.

Apology over 'White lives matter'
Phoenix (CNN)Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley apologized on Saturday for saying "All lives matter" while discussing police violence against African-Americans with liberal demonstrators.
Several dozen demonstrators interrupted the former Maryland governor while he was speaking here at the Netroots Nation conference, a gathering of liberal activists, demanding that he address criminal justice and police brutality. When they shouted, "Black lives matter!" a rallying cry of protests that broke out after several black Americans were killed at the hands of police in recent months, O'Malley responded: "Black lives matter. White lives matter. All lives matter."

Tiger Woods Misses Cut In Back-To-Back Majors For First Time
Tiger Woods missed the cut at The Open by seven strokes after shooting a second round 75 Saturday. It’s the second straight major championship Woods has failed to reach the end of, the first time in his career he’s missed the cut at consecutive majors.
Woods actually shot one stroke better Saturday than he did in Round 1, but it was nowhere near enough to keep him in the field at St. Andrews, where he has won twice previously. Woods’s struggles have been wide-ranging in his last two majors. At the U.S. Open, he sprayed the ball all over the course. At St. Andrews, Woods’s game fell apart nearly every time he put the driver away and pulled out a different club.
With his latest poor performance, Woods will no longer be ranked in the world’s top 250. He’ll have a couple more chances to make some noise this season, perhaps most notably at the PGA Championship, but for most people, Woods has probably lost the benefit of the doubt.

Take a look at Russell Wilson's new limited edition Rangers baseball card
Super Bowl-bound Russell Wilson's past as a baseball player has been well documented in this corner of the internet, but now we can finally see what it might have looked like had he stuck with his MLB aspirations.
Wilson was selected by the Rangers in the 2013 Rule 5 Draft, and while it's unlikely that he'll ever play Major League ball (the Rangers readily admit this), it's pretty cool to see him in that uniform.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says he can't sleep because of Super Bowl's final play
Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll isn't sleeping well these days. Carroll and his offensive coaching staff made the infamous decision to pass the ball from New England's 1-yard line in the final seconds of Super Bowl XLIX, resulting in Russell Wilson throwing a game-ending interception.
While Carroll calls himself an optimist, he admitted to some sleepless nights in the aftermath of the Super Bowl. "I wake up and can't stop thinking about it,’’ he said.
"The sleep part works because you're so worn out after the six months of the season that you can't help but fall asleep. But it's the waking up … and getting back to sleep [that] is the challenge."
Carroll is one of three coaches to win both an NCAA championship and a Super Bowl, accomplishing the feat with the USC Trojans in 2003 and 2004, and the Seahawks in 2013. However, Carroll has also been on the short end of a few all-time games, including the 2006 Rose Bowl and Sunday's Super Bowl. The latter might sting worse, considering his play call is the source of controversy.
Still, Carroll defends the decision despite the finish:
"It’s the worst result of a call ever,'' Carroll said. "The call would have been a great one if we'd caught it. It would have been just fine and nobody would have thought twice about it. We knew we were going to throw the ball one time in the sequence somewhere, and so we did, and it just didn't turn out right."
For Seattle, it will attempt to rebound from the setback with a third straight trip to the Super Bowl in the 2015-16 campaign. For Carroll, he is trying to move on. After the game, he found himself crying in the aftermath of the brutal loss.
"Just, lying in bed with [my wife] Glena,’’ he said. "Like, in the middle of the night, you know? 4:05 in the a.m. That’s what happened. That was my opportunity to go ahead and visit it."

Tony Romo Has Gone to the Locker Room Injured after Getting Knee in the Back
Tony Romo entered this year coming off back surgery. That back took a serious wrenching on this sack when he got a knee slammed into him. Then Romo was lying in a prone position, face up toward the giant Jerry World jumbotron. After several minutes, Romo got up and was helped to the locker room. We’ll update with further injury news, and for now, it is Brandon Weeden time in Dallas.

Sounders vs. Galaxy: Final score 2-0, Seattle lifts Supporters' Shield
For the first time in their history, the Seattle Sounders have captured the Supporters' Shield
For the first time in their history, the Seattle Sounders have captured the Supporters' Shield, and they didn't even need their tiebreaker. They created a goal at the end of a nasty and physical game against the LA Galaxy, with substitute Marco Pappa netting the winner. He added another audacious goal in stoppage time, picking the ball off Jaime Penedo and scooping in the second goal in a 2-0 victory, clinching the Shield for the home side.
The best chance either team created in the first half came in the 14th minute, when Stefan Ishizaki played in Landon Donovan behind the defense with a lofted ball. But Donovan wasn't quite in perfect position, while Stefan Frei anticipated the ball well, and the Seattle keeper was able to snag Donovan's chip attempt.

"I have no problem with our fans. Our fans are great. I've got a problem with our scoreboard operator," the Broncos' quarterback said. "I'm gonna have a little talk with him. I'm not sure what he's doing.
"He's playing music, showing players dancing and getting the crowd fired up when we had the ball. I don't think he should be doing that."
Peyton Manning does not tolerate imperfection. Sure, Denver was up by 14 at the end of the game, killing the clock. And sure, the scoreboard operator wanted to keep the crowd fired up.
But dammit, Peyton had a job to do, and that crowd was not making it easy. Oh, and don’t be disrespectful and show Philip Rivers on the scoreboard while Manning is trying to end this game. So, yeah, Mr. Scoreboard Operator, it’s going to be a long morning.
'Marlins Man' puts Miami front and center at World Series
The Marlins have made it to the World Series. Or at least one very visible fan has.
In a sea of blue, Laurence Leavy's orange "Marlins" shirt stands out in the crowd, especially in the pricey seats behind home plate where the TV cameras focus.
Leavy, a 58-year-old Miami lawyer known as "Marlins Man," said he just loves being part of the game.
But the sight of Leavy in Miami orange rattled the home team enough that he said stadium officials asked him to move — or at least cover up with a Kansas City Royals shirt.
Marlins Man would have none of that Tuesday night. And he said he would be back for other World Series games.
"The owner of the Royals was extremely upset that I was there," Leavy said Wednesday.
They offered him a private suite if he would move. They tried enticing him with free World Series goodies if he would get rid of the jersey.
No way, Marlins Man said.
Leavy paid $8,000 for that prime seat to see Royals vs. Giants, and he wasn't about to give it up.
A Royals spokesman said no one asked him to leave his seat or to take off the jersey.
Back in Miami, the Marlins team loved every minute of the exposure.
"I think it's great," said P.J. Loyello, vice president of communications and broadcasting for the Miami Marlins. "He's one of our loyal season-ticket holders. He's definitely easy to pick out with that jersey. It's fun to pick him out. It's reached a point where we expect to see him at games now. It's fun. It's sports."
It wasn't the first time Leavy has stuck out in a crowd.
Marlins Man has been buying the best seats to major sporting events for years. By his count, he's gone to 27 Super Bowls, more than 200 NBA playoff games, and at least 85 World Series games, and many Triple Crown horse races.
He's been a Marlins season-ticket holder since the team's first year in 1993, is a rabid Florida State fan (he was on hand for the FSU-Notre Dame showdown in Tallahassee on Saturday before heading off to Kansas City), owns more than 100 thoroughbreds, and rarely misses a Miami Heat or Dolphins game.
"I never had any kids, nor have any wife," Leavy said. "You don't have to pay for a wife and kids, so you have money in the bank."
Leavy, who attended North Miami Beach High and practices workers' compensation law, spends plenty of that money on sports travel.
In May, he was in San Diego watching the Marlins when pitching ace Jose Fernandez suffered his season-ending arm injury, followed the team up to Los Angeles to watch them play the Dodgers, and thus began a sports-crazed odyssey, criss-crossing the country to catch games in 16 cities in 18 days.
As a guest of thoroughbred racing magnate Frank Stronach, he sat with actress Bo Derek before the Preakness at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland until it was time for her to bark out orders. "I kept her company until she said 'riders up!' " Leavy said.
The next day he flew to Indianapolis to catch Heat-Pacers, followed by Thunder-Spurs in San Antonio the day after that, back to Indianapolis for Heat-Pacers ... and on and on.
"It was the coolest thing," he said.
Leavy said he purchases most of his top-dollar tickets on StubHub. Sometimes, ticket brokers call him if they have great seats to major events. He would not reveal an amount on how much he spends annually on plane tickets and seats to sporting events, only to say "it's a lot of money."
Somehow, Leavy said he is still able to run his law practice, which he does electronically during the day when he's on the road. He has offices in Davie and in Jacksonville.
For years, Leavy attended sporting events largely unnoticed.
"Nobody noticed me when I wore a Cowboys shirt," he said. "Nobody noticed me when I wore a Heat jersey."
But when the Marlins changed their uniform colors in 2012, going from a mostly black and teal to orange and black, everything changed. Leavy suddenly became more recognizable.
Two years ago, he was spotted sporting his orange Marlins gear in San Francisco for the World Series. The following day he drove to the Golden Gate Bridge to take some pictures of the landmark when he was spotted by a couple of park rangers, who drove up in a truck to shoo him away from a dangerous cliff.
"One of the guys goes, 'Aren't you the guy we've been watching on TV behind home plate?' " Leavy recalled. "And the other guy says, 'He's the Marlins Man!' "

“It’s tough on us right now. We’re not playing disciplined ball like we want to, but we still had a chance to win the game,” No. 29 said. “I stripped the ball and it was a big scuffle and I was just trying to help Sherm get the ball. He had it but somehow … I don’t know.”
“We gotta cut out on the penalties,” Earl said after the game. “That’s what’s hurting us.”
