    Shooting at Pennsylvania hospital leaves one dead, two wounded

    By Shelby Lin Erdman, CNN

    (CNN) -- A shooting at a suburban Philadelphia hospital Thursday afternoon left a psychiatric caseworker dead and two wounded, including a doctor, local authorities said.

    Delaware County District Attorney Jack Whelan said the shooting happened about 2:30 p.m. in a treatment room at Mercy Fitzgerald Wellness Center in Darby, Pennsylvania, according to CNN affiliate KYW-TV.

    Whelan said it appears an outpatient psychiatric patient shot and killed the caseworker, and the doctor, who was carrying his own weapon, shot the patient. Authorities said they did not know why the patient opened fire.

    He identified the patient as Richard Plotts of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, and the caseworker as Theresa Hunt of Pennsylvania.

    The doctor, Lee Silverman, was grazed by a bullet but otherwise not injured, Whelan said. Plotts was in critical condition at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, the district attorney said

    Witnesses described a chaotic scene as numerous law enforcement officers descended on the hospital.

    "The scene looked like a small army. It was very surreal but it was comforting that if something happens this severe and we can come together," said Rohan Hepkins, mayor of nearby Yeadon, Pennsylvania.

    "The police came in droves and they locked down everything. They chased everybody on the inside and then we (saw) a SWAT team come in," a bystander told CNN affiliate KYW.

    Carlos Gomez Is A Dancing Ninja Turtle

    Mark Reynolds was a guest on MLB Network's Yukfest Live with human balloon-from-the-supermarket-checkout-line Kevin Millar and Chris Rose Wednesday afternoon and got himself videobombed by Carlos Gomez. This was no run-of-the-mill videobomb, though, Gomez was dressed up as Leonardo the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. We might finally have an explanation for this bizarre novelty shirt that looks like a pizza stain.

    The hosts spent a few minutes trying to guess who was in the Leonardo costume, eventually asking to see him move his hips, which led to the dance moves you see above.

    Gomez eventually broke the cardinal sin of stuffed costume-wearing and removed his Leonardo head to cool off. I think he also tried to smell the back of Reynolds's head? I dunno, baseball players are weird, man.

    Gomez apparently obtained and wore the costume because his son asked him to, which is a pretty Cool Dad move on his part.

    Ryan Raburn Defensive Meltdown Leads To Easiest Inside-The-Parker Ever

    We've seen bad defense from Ryan Raburn before, but this is really something.

    For at least the second time in his career, the outfielder (now with the Indians) allowed a man to circle the bases entirely due to defensive miscues. The beneficiary this time was Kansas City's Mike Moustakas, and it broke a 0-0 tie in the eighth inning.

Artist's impression of the hot planet Osiris

 

This is an artistic illustration of the gas giant planet HD 209458b (unofficially named Osiris) located 150 light-years away in the constellation Pegasus.

This is a "hot Jupiter" class planet. Estimated to be 220 times the mass of Earth. The planet's atmosphere is almost 1000 degrees celsius. It orbits very closely to its bright sun-like star, and the orbit is tilted edge-on to Earth. This makes the planet an ideal candidate for the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope to analyse and make precise measurements of the chemical composition of the giant's atmosphere as starlight filters though it. To the surprise of astronomers, they have found much less water vapor in the atmosphere than standard planet-formation models predict.

CENTRAL WASHINGTON – A new group on Facebook is devoted to helping fire victims in north-central Washington. People are offering everything from shelter to free repairs and even children’s toys.

Michelle McClanahan Rogge created the group late Thursday. By Friday morning, the group called “Chelan helps fire victims” had grown to more than 1,000 members.

According to the page, the Red Cross is working to get a mobile boarding unit set up for pets and animals who have been displaced by the fire.  The Wenatchee Valley Humane Society is also helping pets and animals.

Other posters are letting those who have been evacuated know where they can find a room, pitch a tent or park their RVs.

So far, officials say the best way to help is to stay away from the fires and donate to the American Red Cross >>

The Community Foundation of North Central Washington has set up the NCW FIRE RELIEF FUND and donations can be made directly online.

Chelan PUD is also accepting donations of gift cards or money at the following locations:

321 N. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee
1034 E. Woodin Ave., Chelan
222 Chumstick Hwy., Leavenworth

Violent California police chase ends with 3 dead

  By Ed Payne and Steve Almasy, CNN

A gun left at the scene after the gunfight.

A gun left at the scene after the gunfight.

 (CNN) -- Tense. Chaotic. Dangerous.

Three bank robbery suspects led police on an hour-long chase through Northern California on Wednesday, spraying patrol cruisers with bullets and shooting at least two of the three hostages they took.

In the end, two of suspects were killed by police and a third was wounded. One of the three hostages died, while two others were injured.

"The actions of the dangerous criminals ... was beyond reckless and chaotic," said Stockton Police Chief Eric Jones


 
Chase ends after hail of bullets, 3 dead

It all started with a security guard's call to 9-1-1. A bank robbery was underway, he told the emergency operator before the suspects tied him up.

An officer was there within minutes, but could only watch helplessly as the suspects bolted out of the Bank of the West branch with three female hostages -- two employees and a customer.

"I noticed that the front (door) of the Bank of the West opened slowly," Jose Maldonado told CNN affiliate KOVR. "Three guys had three guns and had the guns to the hostages' heads. They were petrified. Their faces were white. They were so scared."

The suspects stole a bank employee's SUV and raced out of the parking lot. Officers chased the vehicle.

KISS’s Paul Stanley Opens Up About Overcoming Partial Deafness, Prepares for 40-Year Celebration

KISS’s Paul Stanley Opens Up About Overcoming Partial Deafness, Prepares for 40-Year Celebration

by Jon Wiederhorn

Dealing with the TV and film dalliances of Gene Simmons, the multiple fragmentation of the original KISS lineup, and conflicts with everyone from former managers to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is nothing compared to the traumas and trials Paul Stanley faced in childhood — the most daunting of which was growing up with a rare condition, Level 3 Microtia, that caused most of the cartilage on his right ear to be missing.

Largely because of his physical appearance he was bullied and ostracized, and survived by withdrawing and living much of his life inside his head, all of which he documents in vivid detail in his new memoir, Face the Music: A Life Exposed.

"Many people in the same position will end up with either a shotgun in their mouth or a needle in their arm," Stanley tells Yahoo Music. "Really, it comes down a simple choice. Do you live as a victim, or roll up your sleeves and make a life for yourself?"

Even those who can’t name the original members of KISS know the answer to the rhetorical question. Paul Stanley is one of the biggest success stories in rock music. As the band’s main songwriter and vocalist for more than 40 years — not counting the time he, Simmons, ex-guitarist Ace Frehley, and former drummer Peter Criss spent in KISS predecessors Wicked Lester — Stanley helped pioneer the evolution of arena rock and, along with his bandmates, became icons of pop culture.

KISS has sold more than 100 million albums worldwide, and along the way Stanley has indulged in every whim and rock ‘n’ roll fantasy — which for him, has not included drugs and alcohol, something he has spoken a great deal about in the past.

Incredibly, Stanley rose to the top and crafted some of the greatest rock anthems and ballads while half-deaf. In 1982 he underwent reconstructive surgery and had a piece of his rib cage molded into a makeshift ear. Even so, he still can’t hear normally. “As far as the music went, I never missed anything because you don’t miss what you’ve never had,” he insists. “I hear music the way I hear it. It’s normal to me, but it’s not the way you hear music. And one of the key issues is if there’s a lot of noise I can’t hear people talking in front of me because only one ear is taking all the sound in. And I also can’t tell direction of sound. So if I’m driving and a fire engine is coming I could just as easily drive into the path of it as away from it because I don’t know where it is. But that hasn’t hurt me at all when it’s come to writing songs for KISS.”

At age 62, a time when many people’s hearing is on the wane anyway, Stanley is still going strong. KISS were recently nominated into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and are touring with Def Leppard through August 31. Pretty much everything Stanley has strived for in his career has come to fruition. Interestingly, one thing he never wanted until recently was authorship of a book.

"I was adamant about not writing a book for decades," he says. "The world doesn’t need another one of those ‘look at me, I’m the coolest guy’ nonsense that most autobiographies of entertainers tend to be. They tend to be overinflated, self-promoting, and, a lot of times, glaringly not accurate."

Stanley finally decided to sit down with co-writer Tim Mohr to discuss Face the Music because he’s in a great place in his life, and wanted a document he could hand his four kids so they would understand where he came from and what it took for him to overcome the obstacles he has faced.

"Once I decided what kind of book I could write, it was very easy," Stanley says. "I don’t want to say it was cathartic because the catharsis came before I wrote the book. Some people say it’s such a great book because it’s so intimate. I couldn’t write a book if I was still in the midst of what was going on in the book. The book has a happy ending, and that’s why it was worth writing. After I was done with it, my son read it, and he said, ‘It’s you. It’s your voice, it’s your humor. It’s you talking.’"

As Stanley continues to celebrate the success of his first book, he’s also excited about the release of KISS 40, a double-disc set consisting of 40 songs — one from every KISS release and four previously unreleased tracks (the 1977 demo “Reputation,” “Deuce” live from 2004, “Cold Gin” live from 2009, and “Crazy Crazy Nights” live from 2010). Elsewhere, there’s a career-spanning collection of songs, including the explosive 1975 live version of “Rock and Roll All Nite” from Alive, which took KISS to a new level of stardom, and the controversial disco song “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” from the 1979 album Dynasty.

"I can’t be anything but proud of [‘I was Made for Lovin’ You,’] a song that was a top five hit around the world," Stanley says. "I can’t be anything but proud of a song that, in spite of people having ambivalent feelings, is still probably the biggest crowd raiser in Europe when we play it."

Having said that, Stanley admits “I Was Made for Lovin’ You” came during a turbulent point in the band’s career. “Towards the end of the ’70s, we were in the midst of being lost and not quite knowing who we were anymore and losing sight of what we loved and why we got into this in the first place,” he said. “We had problems within the band. Peter was basically a non-functioning member who didn’t play on albums at that point — Ace being in all kinds of trouble with drugs and drinking and Gene being distracted by Hollywood and me looking for the same validation from the wrong people — we started looking for credibility from people who didn’t matter. We already had the credibility of the people who did. ‘I Was Made for Lovin’ You’ was a result of a lot of things going on and it was an experiment on my part that turned out very well even though some people didn’t like the result.”

While Stanley has a fonder place in his heart for some KISS albums than others, he says that together they tell a story of a band that followed its path, made mistakes along the way, but ultimately enjoyed far more triumphs than failures. “My sense was always that KISS was about having no rules and although I hold the fans in the highest of esteem, I also expect them to understand that everything we do may not be to their liking, and the way they can show us is by not buying it. And they’ve spoken loudly and clearly when they didn’t like what we’ve done. But we couldn’t have done Creatures of the Night if we didn’t do Music From the Elder. I don’t begrudge anything we’ve done because everything we do leads us to where we ultimately get.”

Some KISS fans will always long for the reformation of the band’s original lineup, which after the Hall of Fame debacle seems less likely than ever to happen. But Stanley insists his favorite lineup ever is the current one, which includes guitarist Tommy Thayer and drummer Eric Singer: “It embodies everything I’ve always wanted this band to be — a four-wheel drive car where everyone feels blessed to be there and works for the benefit of the band and also realistically works within what they are capable of doing and doesn’t try to be anything more than that,” he says. “It’s been great and it’s a lineup where we socialize and have a great time together and play fantastically onstage. It’s really the band I’ve always wanted it to be. The original lineup was combustible, and combustibility is terrific until it implodes and that’s unfortunate. The concept of combustibility is fine as long as it is harnessed. In the case of KISS it clearly led to the demise of the original lineup. That’s life.”

Tottenham Players Hold Wrigley Field First Pitch Contest, Goes About as Well as Expected
 

Tottenham Hotspur, everyone’s favorite English Premier League club, is embarking on a North American summer tour where it will play MLS teams in Seattle, Chicago and Toronto. During the club’s stop in Chicago one lucky Spurs player will get to throw out the first pitch at a Cubs game. The club held a competition on it’s official online channel to see who’ll be the lucky man to toe the slab at Wrigley Field.

The results … well … they go about as well as you’d expect for a bunch of Europeans who’ve probably never thrown a baseball. 50 Cent, Carly Rae Jepsen, Nick Young,  et al might want to take notes, however, because it could have been a lot worse.

Highlights include Michael Dawson saying he’ll use an underhand rounders-style throw only to attempt this would-be knuckleball:

German midfielder Lewis Holtby’s whistling and windup show he’s probably at least seen one baseball game in his life. Maybe.

Iceland native Gylfi Sigurdsson claiming throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley would be a “dream come true” also made me laugh. Harry Kane, likely fresh from the beaches of Ibiza, provides a little unintentional comedy, too. This video also serves as further proof former American international keeper Brad Friedel has probably spent a little bit too much time across the pond, if his Ohio-meets-Liverpool accent hasn’t done so already.

 

 

 

 2014 World Cup Final Rating: Over 26 Million Americans Watched on TV

Germany v Argentina: 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Final


 

A lot of Americans tuned in to watch Sunday’s 2014 World Cup final on ABC. ESPN’s public relations released the ratings figures for Germany’s 1-0 win in Rio. The game averaged over 17.3 million viewers … on ABC.  The total number jumps closer to 26.5 million when you factor in the 9.2 million viewers on Univision and is probably much higher given the ratings system doesn’t take into account people watching in bars and or other public forums. ESPN also touted 1.8 million unique viewers on its WatchESPN app.

So all together, it’s not a bad total when you consider some of the slanted pre-World Cup polls that surfaced still clinging to the notion nobody in America cares about soccer.

Nikola Tesla vs. Thomas Edison: Who Was the Better Inventor?

 Nikola Tesla would have celebrated his 158th birthday today (July 10).

The Serbian-American scientist was a brilliant and eccentric genius whose inventions enabled modern-day power and mass communication systems.

His nemesis and former boss, Thomas Edison, was the iconic American inventor of the light bulb, the phonograph and the moving picture. The two feuding geniuses waged a "War of Currents" in the 1880s over whose electrical system would power the world — Tesla's alternating-current (AC) system or Edison's rival direct-current (DC) electric power.

Amongst science nerds, few debates get more heated than the ones that compare Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. So, who was the better inventor?

"They're different inventors, but you can't really say one is greater, because American society needs some Edisons and it needs some Teslas" said W. Bernard Carlson, the author of "Tesla: Inventor of the Electrical Age" (Princeton Press, 2013).

From their starkly different personalities to their lasting legacies, here's how the two dueling inventors stack up. [Vote: Tesla vs. Edison - Who Was the Greatest Inventor of All Time?]

Okay, it's a little funny. American football is more popular than soccer in America, and that's not going to change anytime soon, even as soccer becomes more and more popular. But we're pretty damn good at it, as evidenced by the whole Round of 16 thing.

Israel Says It Downed Drone as Gaza Death Toll Climbs

By ALEXANDER MARQUARDT and MARTHA RADDATZ Good Morning America

 
 Israel Says It Downed Drone as Gaza Death Toll Climbs
 
Israel Says It Downed Drone as Gaza Death Toll Climbs (ABC News)
 
The military wing of the Palestinian militant group Hamas claimed today that it sent homemade drones over Israel, after Israel said that it had shot down a Palestinian drone flying along the coast in southern Israel.

Hamas' Al Qassam Brigades boasted on Twitter that the drones carried out "three missions over Israeli military bases" and a "specific mission over Israeli war ministry." The group claimed to have domestically built three different kinds of drones for surveillance and bombing missions.

The unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) that Israel brought down was targeted with a Patriot missile, the Israeli military said, near the southern city of Ashdod. There’s no evidence the small downed drone was armed, a senior Israeli military intelligence official told ABC News, adding they believe it was launched for the benefit of media attention.

Israel has not commented on Hamas claims that more than one drone flew over Israel.

With a price tag of well over $1 million each, “using a Patriot to shoot down a UAV is like using a shotgun to kill a fly,” ABC News military consultant Steve Ganyard said.

Israeli Troops Enter Gaza to Take Out Missile Sites

Israeli Bombing Turns Gaza Into Ghost Town 

 

Israeli drones are a constant presence in the skies over Gaza, buzzing loudly as they watch and attack targets in the Strip. But the Palestinian drone is a new turn in this conflict, now entering its second week.

More than 170 people have been killed in Gaza since Israel launched operation “Protective Edge,” the Ministry of Health in Gaza says, with around 1,300 wounded. On Sunday afternoon, a United Nations report said that 80 percent of those killed so far have been civilians and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon calling for an immediate ceasefire.

Around 1,000 Palestinian rockets have been launched into Israel in the same period, the military said. But no Israelis have been killed, largely thanks to the “Iron Dome” anti-missile shield.

Overnight, the Israeli military said they targeted more than 40 sites in Gaza and of the 20 rockets fired at Israel, seven of were intercepted.

As Israel’s offensive continues, the UN says 17,000 people from the northern part of the Strip had fled to 20 of its centers. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday that the Israeli operation could last for "a long time" and that the military was prepared "for all possibilities."

That includes a wide-ranging Gaza ground operation, which would likely cause heavy casualties in the coastal strip.

But Netanyahu is coming under increasing international pressure to end the operation soon. After the U.N. secretary-general’s call for a case-fire Sunday, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry voiced U.S. "readiness" to help restore calm. Egypt, a key mediator between Israel and Hamas, continued to work behind the scenes to stop the conflict.

Hamas has sent signals it may be ready to consider a cease-fire but appears to be waiting for some tangible military or diplomatic achievement before moving ahead on that front. For his part, Netanyahu wants to show the Israeli public that he has succeeded in significantly degrading Hamas's ability to strike at its Israeli targets before moving ahead diplomatically.

2014 AL Cy Young Award Is Seattle Mariners’ Felix Hernandez’s to Lose

Getty Images

Getty Images

At the midpoint of the 2014 MLB season, it can be said with the utmost confidence that the Seattle Mariners have the best starting pitcher in the AL on their roster, and he goes by King Felix. Felix Hernandez has been absolutely outstanding so far this season, and appears to have 2014 AL Cy Young written all over him.

There have been very few blemishes in his game since he first took the ball for the M’s on Opening Day, March 31 versus the Los Angeles Angels, right up until he walked off the mound this past Friday night after eight innings of two-run ball against baseball’s best team, the Oakland Athletics. Two formidable AL West foes faced, and two victories for Hernandez.

It is not just his skill and pitching that wins him such praise, but it is also Hernandez’ durability. Since becoming a permanent fixture in the Mariners’ rotation in 2006 as a 20-year-old, he has started no less than 30 games in a season for Seattle — knock on wood.  Four All-Stars, one Cy Young and zero surgeries later, and here we are. Hernandez can now be called a five-time All-Star after getting his fourth consecutive nod in 2014. The strange thing is, what breaks up his chances of being a consecutive All-Star six seasons in a row from 2009-14, is his 2010 campaign.

Hernandez was so good that year. He overcame a mediocre (by his standards) first half ERA of 2.88, and not being named an All-Star, with a second-half ERA of 1.53 in 15 games started. That played a big part in the hardware he took home at the end of the season. How often can a starting pitcher be overlooked on All-Star ballots, but then go on to win a Cy Young award at seasons end? That’s exactly the hand Hernandez was dealt in July of 2010, and he played it remarkably well.

Friday night at Safeco Field against the best baseball team in America, Hernandez outperformed one of the better starting pitchers in America, the A’s Jeff Samardzija. Samardzija threw an eight-inning complete game, allowing only three earned runs. Hernandez matched his eight innings for the win, striking out nine and allowing two earned runs. July 11 marked only the second time since his April 21 outing that Hernandez had allowed a hitter to go deep against him.

Masahiro Tanaka has succumbed to the dreaded UCL tear. Mark Buehrle has cooled off slightly, and so has his team’s bats. Chris Sale missed a fair amount of time on the disabled list, and his team isn’t considered a contender. Scott Kazmir may be a solid option, but he lacks the K/9 flare Hernandez has. Jon Lester and Yu Darvish probably don’t have the support of a strong team behind them this year, either.

Through it all, King Felix has weathered the storm in 2014. If his second half is anywhere near as exuberant as his first half has been, Hernandez looks primed to place his second Cy Young award atop his mantle this fall.

Buzz Aldrin: The First Humans On Mars Should Never Come Home
 
Buzz Aldrin: The First Humans On Mars Should Never Come Home

Buzz Aldrin was the second man to ever set foot on the moon, and he has some opinions about how things should go down when humans first set foot on Mars. Namely that they shouldn't come home. Ever.

Aldrin explained his stance in an AMA on Reddit today, and it's not that he's just pro-stranding-people-on-an-alien-world or anything. He's just got the bigger picture in mind.

From the AMA:

I have considered whether a landing on Mars could be done by the private sector. It conflicts with my very strong idea, concept, conviction, that the first human beings to land on Mars should not come back to Earth. They should be the beginning of a build-up of a colony / settlement, I call it a "permanence." A settlement you can visit once or twice, come back, and then decide you want to settle. Same with a colony. But you want it to be permanent from the get-go, from the very first. I know that many people don't feel that that should be done. Some people even consider it distinctly a suicide mission. Not me! Not at all. Because we will plan, we will construct from the moon of Mars, over a period of 6-7 years, the landing of different objects at the landing site that will be brought together to form a complete Mars habitat and laboratory, similar to what has been done at the Moon.

There's not exactly a shortage of folks who are willing to die on Mars, Elon Musk included, so the personnel part of the plan might not be too far-fetched. NASA seems to be a bit too strapped for cash to pull it off, so maybe Aldrin and Musk can team up on their plan to give people the chance to retire on Big Red. The real trick is getting them to build a colony before they croak.

You can read more of Aldrin's spacethoughts, including what he thinks of UFOs, on his AMA.

 Severe thunderstorms packing strong winds swept through a number of Eastern states, killing five people, destroying or damaging numerous houses and leaving nearly 200,000 without power Wednesday, July 9, 2014 officials said.

In central New York, four people died after the storms hit the rural town of Smithfield, between Syracuse and Utica, the Madison County Sheriff's Office said. At least four homes were completely destroyed and numerous others were damaged. Nearly 56,000 utility customers in central and northern New York were still without power early Wednesday. (AP)

Trent Boult is the name of the New Zealand cricketer making the crazy diving catch in this gif. I’m not even going to bother predenting to figure out what is happening in this play or what would have happened if Boult hadn’t caught the ball. Instead, I’ll just marvel at the weird way he seems to catch the ball, throw it up like he’s saving it from going out of bounds and then lays out to make a second catch. It was good enough for some publications to throw out “best ever question mark” headlines and that’s good enough for me. [stuff.co.nz]

Lest we incur the wrath of beer nerds on the internet (hooray for literalists!), we're required to remind you that Blue Moon is NOT REALLY A BELGIAN BEER, and that it's also made by Molson Coors, a hybrid American/Canadian company.

But that's okay, because the Belgian waffle isn't really a good breakfast item. In fact, Belgium might not even be a real country, just the unclaimed offspring of French and German parents.

     Peter Max: My psychedelic New York

    Peter Max colored our world — his bright posters practically defined the psychedelic ’60s. And he practices what he paints, clad on a recent day in a purple cashmere sweater and red sneakers, at his studio near Lincoln Center. Among the works: a purple-and-pink baby grand piano signed by Ringo Starr.

    Heady stuff for a gangly guy born Peter Max Finklestein 76 years ago in Berlin. He was 15 or so when his family landed in Bensonhurst — and it was love at first sight. “I had such a wish to be in New York for years and years, because I’d seen pictures of the Empire State Building,” says Max.

    If he hadn’t been an artist, he says, he would have been an astronomer. No wonder his new memoir is titled “The Universe of Peter Max.” This is his artistic New York.

     Is This Telling of What Will Happen Today Between the Seahawks and The Broncos

     

    Dad Missed His Son 

    Super Bowl XLVIII - Seattle Seahawks v Denver Broncos


    Denver Broncos fans had a rough night. The Seattle Seahawks destroyed their favorite team and won the Super Bowl, 43-8. The game was never in doubt. The slow and increasingly inevitable decent into Super Bowl loserdom gave fans time to cope, stew, contemplate, rant, accept and cry. Here are some of the highlights that friends of fans put on YouTube in the wake of the Denver loss.

    It's really been a terrible game: the Broncos can't do anything right and Seattle can't do anything wrong. Up top you've got Knowshon Moreno reacting to Doug Baldwin's touchdown which made it 43-Terrible.

    And here is that touchdown, where Baldwin just sort of burrows between a couple of hapless defenders into the end zone.

     Marshawn Lynch is a man of few words ... wait, we've had this discussion already, right? Beast Mode now has a Super Bowl win to add to his resume, but that didn't change his approach to press conferences.

    Here's what Lynch had to say after the game:

    "Dream come true."

    "Kicked it all off boss."

    "Man, they know how I feel about it. This is big time. This has been a tradition since I came, since forever. Everybody knows it. They respect it."

    "Next to being born."

    And that's it. Good thing the PFWA don't get a discount on pitchforks and torches with their memberships.

    Pete Carroll fist pump in Super Bowl

     

    0 lead, returned the 2nd half kick for a TD, and it never got remotely close. Pete Carroll is the 3rd coach in history to win a college and NFL title, joining Barry Switzer and Jimmy Johnson.

    Thanks for playing, John Fox. You made zero adjustments after the slow start and Denver was never in this game, not for a second.

    Broncos-safety

    A safety on the 1st play of the game? Not a good start for Denver. It started with taking the ball out of the end zone on the kickoff, and only getting to the 15-yard line.

    Seattle leads 2-0 just 14:48 in.

    That has to be the craziest first play of the game in Super Bowl history. It’s the fastest score in Super Bowl history, narrowly ahead of Devin Hester’s kickoff return the last time Peyton played in the Super Bowl.

    After the safety punt, the Seahawks took over at the 36-yard line. The Broncos offense never even had a chance to get going, and the Seahawks defense got an easy early score.

    The Super Bowl has a little bit of everything so far, including a stunning hit by Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor on Demaryius Thomas.

    Kamhit2_medium

    These are the kind of plays Seattle needs.

    Kam Chancellor laid a big hit on the Broncos second drive of the game, and on the third drive of the game, he picked off a Peyton Manning pass on third down to give the Seahawks great field position. Manning threw the ball to tight end Julius Thomas but the pass sailed over his head for an easy interception for Chancellor.

    We heard 

    Intercepting a pass and running it back more than half the field is tiring. Therefore, we can't fully blame Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith for being too tuckered out to deliver a great dunk after his pick-six. At least he threw it over to the best of his ability.

    Dunk_medium

    Of course, this just capped off a heck of a defensive play. It was the 13th interception to be returned for a touchdown in Super Bowl history, and all of the previous 12 were recorded by the eventual winning teams.

    Seattle now leads, 22-0.

    Seattle now leads Denver 22-0 because Peyton Manning just threw his second interception of the game and Malcolm Smith returned it 65 yards for touchdown. The wheels are officially off the wagon and driving the can't-win-the-big-game narrative and we're not even at the two-minute warning.

    Peyton Manning Throws Brutal Pick-Six 

     

    Seattle is dominating Denver early. The Broncos finally got a first down, but on third and long, Manning got hit in the pocket, and Malcolm Smith stepped in front of the wounded duck as Richard Sherman nodded approvingly.

    It’s now 22-0 in the second quarter, and the rout is on. This one could test Manning’s ability to lead big comebacks, because so far Denver seems to grasping for anything against Seattle’s defense, trying short passes but finding no holes.

    Apparently, the Seahawks have some troubles on second down, as they attempted some kind of flea flicker that went nowhere. They faced yet another third down, third-and-5, and once again, Wilson converted with a pass. This one went to Baldwin, taking them all the way to first-and-goal. It was a nifty little route which Wilson connected:

    Unfortunately, a holding call set them back, creating another tough third down that came so close to ending in a Jermaine Kearse touchdown.

    Percy Harvin kickoff return


     

    Seattle is absolutely dominating in every phase and putting on a virtuoso performance in this Super Bowl. Denver could have gone onside kick, down 22-0. Instead, they squibbed it, and Percy Harvin made them pay for poor special teams coverage.

    Here’s your scorecard:

    Seattle Offense – 13 points

    Seattle Defense – 9 points

    Seattle Special Teams – 7 points

    Denver – 0 points 

     

    Marshawn Lynch is excited, and why shouldn't he be? The Seahawks are rolling, the Broncos reeling and after another turnover he only had one last celebration to use.

    BOING, BOING, BOING.

    Jermaine Kearse touchdown catch-b


     

    Thirty-six to zero. There’s still 17 minutes left. And Denver is dangerously on the cusp of being the first team to be shut out in Super Bowl history.

    Late in the 3rd quarter, Jermaine Kearse broke five tackles and danced into the end zone to give Seattle a 36-0 lead. This has been one of the most lopsided, boring Super Bowls I’ve ever witnessed. It’s not entertaining, and Denver hasn’t even thrown a scare into Seattle.

    The better storyline: Peyton Manning’s legacy, or Seattle maybe having the greatest defense in NFL history?

    Doug Baldwin touchdown-a

    Doug Baldwin, who had one of my favorite playoff moves in last year’s postseason, just had a nifty one in the Super Bowl. This Denver defense gave up several possessions ago, but this is just flat-out embarrassing. Baldwin danced, then ducked, and boom.

    What a rout. It’s 43-8 and yeah, it feels like Pete Carroll may go for 50.
