NFL Fines Pete Carroll, Seahawks For Contact In Offseason Practice
Pete Carroll and the Seahawks will be fined approximately $300,000 for "excessive contact between players during a June 16 practice," according to Chris Mortensen. The team will also lose two minicamp practices next season. Another report said the NFL Players Association looked into a possible violation after a fight between players during minicamp.
Cornerback Richard Sherman and wide receiver Phil Bates were involved in a scuffle on June 18, though Garafolo's source did not mention a particular altercation.

Build The Tip is a crowdfunding project by 12s and for 12s to create a lasting work of art that pays tribute to our beloved Seattle Seahawks and their amazing 2013 Super Bowl Championship season.
The vision for Build The Tip came from two die-hard Seahawks fans who believe Richard Sherman’s tipped pass to Malcolm Smith to win the NFC Championship was a moment so pivotal, awe-inspiring, and emblematic of everything great about the 2013 Seattle Seahawks team, that it should be immortalized for future generations of Seahawks fans to enjoy. The play will be captured in a magnificent bronze sculpture designed and built by local artist Kevin Pettelle. The sculpture will pay tribute to the entire Super Bowl XLVIII championship team by incorporating every 2013 Seahawk player.
Build The Tip is in discussions with the Seattle Seahawks organization, Seattle city officials, and various local property owners to choose a location for the sculpture next to CenturyLink Field which will allows fans to enjoy and interact with The Tip on their way into home games.
Every dollar raised in the Build The Tip campaign above the cost of the project will be donated to charity.
plaque of 48
We will place a plaque on The Tip called the Plaque of 48, celebrating the people who made it possible to Build The Tip. This Plaque of 48 will feature four columns of 12 names.
Donate at least $12 today and YOU are eligible to win YOUR NAME on the Plaque of 48!
Seahawks-Niners Rivalry Intensifies as Man Poses With Mannequin
SAN FRANCISCO — It seems as though a peaceful solution to the ongoing crisis along the Pacific strip is becoming more and more unfeasible. After a relative calm, Sportress of Blogitude reports that a Seahawks fan took it upon himself to reignite regional tensions, this time in at Levi’s Stadium. The situation has been dire for fans of the San Francisco 49ers, having been pushed out of their neighborhoods by venture capitalist settlements and taxed millions for a stadium that is still unfit for play. Taking advantage of the situation, one Seahawks fan took it upon himself to re-enact the 49ers’ failed airstrike that cost them the NFC championship. The lone guerilla warrior’s psychological warfare tactics in recreating “The Tip” with a mannequin at Levi’s Stadium is the latest in a longoffensivesstringof amongst these two. Reached for comment, Roger Goodell has come out in staunch support of a one-team solution.
Some guy has Seahawks logo in his prosthetic eye. Here are some other options for him.
think it's kind of creepy?
How do you surprise your husband for your tenth wedding anniversary? Well traditionally the tenth anniversary is celebrated by exchanging gifts of aluminum, but one Seattle woman decided to throw custom aside and had a special Seattle Seahawks prosthetic eye made for her husband.
Bill Vandenbush lost his eye and his vocal cords in 1969 fighting in Vietnam and has to use an artificial eye ever since. He seems to have a pretty good attitude about not having one eye, telling KIRO in Seattle, “I try to have a good time with it.” He had mentioned to his wife — notable not a Seahawks fan — how he wanted to get a Seahawks eye for his next fitting. Working with Erickson Laboratories in Seattle, she was able to make his wish come true while also winning the award for Most Understanding Football Spouse for the week.
Why settle for just a Seahawks logo eye? Let’s imagine all the possibilities for this energetic 12th Man.

Megan Fox Threw Out a First Pitch in South Korea
Megan Fox is in Seoul to promote the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tomorrow. Fox threw out the first pitch at the LG Twins – Doosan Bears game because there is nothing more American than Ninja Turtles and baseball. Her attempt wasn’t horrible, but it was pathetic. She stood about halfway between the mound and the plate and bounced the pitch outside the strike zone. This will probably the be the last post about first pitches that we publish today. Probably.

Jets QB Coach Threatened to "Castrate" Matt Simms Over Future Salsa Celebrations
Matt Simms did the Victor Cruz salsa dance after throwing a touchdown pass to Greg Salas in the Jets’ [result doesn't matter because it was the preseason] game versus the New York Giants. It was utterly ridiculous and everyone seemed to love it.. Even the referee laughed. One person who didn’t appreciate it was Jets’ quarterback coach David Lee. Via NJ.com:
“He did his little salsa dance, and I got him on the phone,” Lee, the Jets’ quarterbacks coach, said with a smile. “Told him if he ever did that again I was going to castrate him.”
Rick Neuheisel Covered "Stairway to Heaven" on The Dan Patrick Show
Rick Neuheisel appeared on The Dan Patrick Show Wednesday morning and played his latest Weird Al-ish cover song about the upcoming college football season. The song Neuheisel chose was Led Zepplin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” which he re-titled “Stairway to Playoffs.” It was a clear violation of the rules, but it was also a pretty damn good cover and Neuheisel can definitely play the guitar.
My favorite line (at the 4:10 mark):
Jimbo Fisher is excited, to get his team back reunited and go for a second national title. He is tired of keeping tabs, on whether Jameis paid for the crabs ’cause he knows that his talent is unrivaled.

Cameroonian Soccer Player Dies After Fan-Thrown Object Hits Him In Head
Albert Ebosse was pronounced dead shortly after his team lost to USM Alger in the Algerian football championship. Fans allegedly threw rocks on the pitch as both teams were heading for the locker rooms after a 2-1 win over JS Kabylie. Ebosse was hit in the head and taken to the hospital in Tizi Ouzou, where he was pronounced dead. He was 24 years old.
In the video below, you can see Ebosse score a penalty and then after his celebration, it cuts to a frenetic shot inside a locker room with what looks to be Ebosse wrapped in cloth before he was taken to the hospital.
Issa Hayatou, president of the Confederation of African Football offered condolences and condemned the incident as hooliganism.
"African football cannot be the breeding ground for hooliganism whatsoever. We expect exemplary sanctions to be taken against this grave act of violence. Violence has no place in African football in particular and sports in general. We remain resolute and state in the strongest terms our determination to eradicate all forms of violence and unsportsmanlike conduct in stadiums on the continent. "
Selfie Atop Skyscraper Could Be Most Insane Selfie of All Time
Even if simply reading the word “Selfie” sends you rushing off to the nearest keyboard to express your anger, you probably have to admit this video is impressive.

No matter, Lau and some friends are chilling out, like it’s no big deal.

@MLB #Mariners Kendrys Morales, ladies and gentlemen!
(CNN) -- It was almost midnight when the surveillance team spotted their target at the base of the cavernous luxury apartment complex. He fit the picture on the international arrest warrant which had urgently been issued just weeks previously -- a French-Algerian in his early 20s with buzz-cut hair and thick arching eyebrows.
The agents, who belonged to the DCRI -- France's domestic security service, logged the time -- 23.20 on February 11, 2014 -- and immediately radioed their superiors, who told them to move in to make the arrest.
When he saw them, the man fled through a gate leading to the staircases, according to French investigators. They gave chase as he clambered up the stairwell to the floors with commanding views over the marina, golf course and Mediterranean. Now that he knew they were on to him they could not afford to let him escape.
The man was wanted because he was suspected of being a member of a terrorist cell that had carried out a grenade attack in Paris.
But he had, according to French authorities, fled to the jihadist battlegrounds of Syria for almost a year and a half to escape arrest, and they feared he might be plotting a terrorist attack. After learning he was on his way back from Syria, they had put his father's building -- in Mandelieu-La Napoule, just up the coast from Cannes -- under surveillance in case he surfaced there, according to French security officials.
Their target -- Ibrahim Boudina, a 23-year-old French national born in Algiers -- had been detected crossing into Greece five weeks previously.
Cold cash just keeps washing in from ALS challenge
AP Photo: Yves Logghe
In this Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 file photo, Red Bull team members dump buckets of ice water on Technical Chief Adrian Newey, left, and Team Chief Christian Horner at the Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium for the "ice bucket challenge" in support of the ALS Association which is raising funds to cure Lou Gehrig's Disease. The idea behind the challenge is to pour a bucket of ice cold water over oneself and to donate a sum of money to the charity at the same time, or pay more to avoid doing the challenge.
In the couple of hours it took an official from the ALS Association to return a reporter's call for comment, the group's ubiquitous "ice bucket challenge" had brought in a few million more dollars.
Approaching $100 million, the viral fundraising campaign for the ailment better known as Lou Gehrig's Disease has put the ALS group into the top ranks for medical charity donations. Since the end of July, the money has been sloshing in at a rate of about $9 million a week. Last year, from July 29 to Aug. 26, the group raised just $2.6 million.
It's caught everyone off-guard, none more so than the ALS Association folks. But they know this is likely a one-off phenomenon, and the group now faces the task of spending all that money wisely. Research, care and advocacy are the group's three main missions — but officials say they don't know yet exactly how they'll use the astonishing windfall.
"I think even if I or any PR person at either a non-profit or a for-profit company had all of the PR dollars in the world to invest, no one would have come up with this idea," says Carrie Munk, the association's spokeswoman. "We realize there are responsibilities that come with being good stewards of these dollars."
Part of what's surprising is that ALS — or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis — is one of those "orphan" diseases. It is a neurodegenerative disease that causes paralysis and death, and the association estimates that about 5,600 new cases are diagnosed in the U.S. each year.
This campaign hasn't exactly put the charity in the same neighborhood as giants like the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association or Susan G. Komen for the Cure — which raised $889 million, $529 million and $310 million last year, respectively. But it's moving into the same ZIP code now.

Yankees Catcher Gets Hit In The Junk, YES Thinks It Was His Collarbone
Francisco Cervelli took a foul ball to the junk in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game against the Tigers. In real time, it was hard to tell where he actually got hit and when the trainer came out to check him out it looked like he was grabbing Cervelli's shoulder area. That led YES analyst Ken Singleton to wonder if it was his collarbone. Singleton and his partner Michael Kay soon learned that it was definitely not his collarbone.
Cardinals Fan Has No Idea He's About To Get Hit With A Flying Bat
You might say this GIF is too long. You would be wrong, and have no understanding of things like delayed gratification and rising action, but you might say something stupid like "this GIF is too long." Do yourself a favor: don't say that, and just watch. It's beautiful.
You'll know the guy who's about to get hit because he is the only person in the entire section who does not react to the flying tree limb headed right for them. He remains unphased, locked in on whatever daydream he is dreaming. His lady friend actually helps deflect the bat (and shares some of the impact) but he still gets hit in the dome and has no idea it's going to happen. Even when she raises her arms next to him, our guy's just hangin' out, staring into space.
Of course he got his mitts on it after, while his lady friend tended to her injury. Hey, look at this bat I caught with my face. Aw, it was nothin'.

Hurricane Cristobal kills four, churns towards Bermuda
AFPA satellite view of Hurricane Cristobal over the Bahamas on August 26, 2014
Strengthening Hurricane Cristobal killed at least four people in the Caribbean and then trained its deadly sights Tuesday on the holiday paradise of Bermuda, officials and meteorologists said.
The storm dumped torrential rain on the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands and Dominican Republic, triggering flooding and killing four people, authorities there said.
Cristobal was packing maximum sustained winds of 75 miles (120 kilometers) per hour, the Miami-based National Hurricane Center (NHC) said in its latest forecast, at 2100 GMT.
It was moving north towards Bermuda at 10 miles per hour, the NHC said, warning its impact was also being felt in the United States.
"The center of Cristobal is expected to pass northwest of Bermuda on Wednesday and Wednesday night," the NHC said.
It added: "Swells generated by Cristobal are affecting portions of the United States coast from central Florida northward to North Carolina and will spread northwards later this week."
A tropical storm watch was already in effect for Bermuda, forecasters said, meaning inclement conditions were possible in the next 24 hours.
Cristobal, a category one hurricane, is the third hurricane of the Atlantic storm season.
It comes hot on the heels of Hurricane Marie, which briefly reached the highest possible category five destructive power but was weakening in the Pacific off Mexico.
Marie's crashing waves over the weekend caused a fishing vessel to capsize, with three of its occupants still missing and presumed dead.

Yet Another Challenger Emerges For Worst First Pitch Ever
So, here's the question: how much worse can these first pitches get? At some point someone is going to do something you never dreamed possible of a ceremonial first pitch, like strike oil, or completely forget to release the ball and fling themselves toward home plate. Either that, or they're just going to have to cancel first pitches altogether because this is getting out of hand.
Orbit's reaction is perfect
It's even worse when the goofy mascot is involved, with its comically lifeless eyes and mono-expressive face. The disappointment and shame is amplified so much when you know the only reason a face is smiling is because that's the only face it can make. Body language doesn't lie, though, and both the pitcher and the mascot know what to do.

Reports: NHL Plans Expansion, And Soon
Two separate, partially concordant reports on Tuesday indicate that the NHL is in the late stages of finalizing a league expansion in the next few years, with one of them going so far as to claim the NHL will add teams in Las Vegas, Seattle, Quebec City, and a second franchise in Toronto, all by 2017.
We must note that neither report comes from one of the hockey media heavyweights you'd expect to be breaking sport-changing news, so big grains of salt all around. Still, it's fun to talk about. In yesterday's Province, columnist Tony Gallagher cited sources telling him that expansion to Las Vegas is "a done deal."
From that, Gallagher surmises that a second team, in Seattle, is on the way to even out the conferences, but also that Gary Bettman and the owners, flush with cash and courted by billionaires, may not stop at two—he throws out Kansas City and Quebec City as potential destinations as well.
MK Dons Score Gorgeous Goal While Bossing Manchester United
Milton Keynes Dons of League One—that's the league below the league below the Premier League—put a goddamn hurting on Manchester United in a League Cup match today, beating them 4-0 to the delight of nearly everyone in the world. Here is the third and prettiest goal of the match, featuring some deft passing and one of the best exaggerated-white-boy-no-look passes you'll ever see.
This is incredibly embarrassing for United; Premier League teams may take it easy in matches like this, but the whole point of being Manchester United is that you should be able to roll out some starters and a few kids and crush fools. More results like this and we're going to have to start collecting examples of van Gaalface to match last year's gallery of Moyesface.
Alcides Escobar goes deep in the hole, "Jeters" Kennys Vargas at first
(CNN) -- A soldier apparently shot herself on Monday at a military post in central Virginia and later died, the Army said.
The incident began at about 8:45 a.m. ET at Fort Lee when the soldier apparently brandished a weapon and then barricaded herself in an office at the Army Combined Arms Support Command headquarters building, according to a statement from the post.
The statement said that Fort Lee Police responded within two minutes and quickly established contact with her.
But during "the course of negotiations," she "reportedly turned the weapon on herself" and fired one shot, the statement said.
The post was temporarily locked down in response to the incident that is under investigation.
Fort Lee is located near Petersburg, about 30 miles south of Richmond.
Retired Maj. Gen. James "Spider" Marks, a CNN military analyst, described Fort Lee as a "very active" one, with soldiers "routinely coming and going to get various types of training."

Single Bee Delays U.S. Open Match, Nearly Outwits Three Ballkids
A stubborn bee with a really excellent sense of comic timing caused a brief delay during a first-round match at the U.S. Open, pestering Kimiko Date-Krumm to the point where three ballkids had to come out and put on a slapstick routine in an attempt to chase it away.
They did not end up chasing it away, I don't think. At 1:53, the ballgirl with the towel appears to smash it good. It died a hero.
Date-Krumm is currently down in the third set to Venus Williams.
The Orioles Dominated The Rays Offensively And Defensively
In the third inning, Nick Markakis and Steve Pearce hit back-to-back home runs. In the fifth inning, Delmon Young, J.J. Hardy, and Chris Davis went back-to-back-to-back. Then, with a 9-1 lead, Adam Jones went and stole a home run from Evan Longoria and doubled-up Matt Joyce trying to tag up to second base.
Markakis put the Orioles on the board with a two-run shot and Pearce made it a 3-1 Baltimore lead. Two innings later Delmon Young blew the game open with a three-run home run. Hardy and Davis tacked on the final two runs with solo shots of their own. Davis really put a charge in his, hitting it 426 feet.
As if Tampa weren't already demoralized by then, Jones made his incredible double play the next inning and stole a three-run homer from Longoria. Instead of a 9-4 game, or at the very least, runners at the corners and one out, the Rays had a man on third with two outs. James Loney grounded to second on a 3-0 count and that was it for Tampa Bay.
Here's another look

South Korea Wins LLWS;
South Korea beat Chicago's Jackie Robinson West in the Little League World Series Championship 8-4 today. It featured a pretty solid bat flip from Dong Wan Sin (above).
At the end of the game, players from both teams lined up to shake hands with each other and instead of being sullen or gloating, depending on which side of the line they were on, they started bro-ing down, teaching each other cool handshakes. It's awkward, in the way handshakes with people you don't know are always awkward, but it's also so cool to see.
Australian Hockey Player Scores Game-Winner, Slides On Head
Ric Del Basso scored the game-winning goal in the Perth Thunder’s 5-4 win over the Melbourne Ice in Australian Ice Hockey League action. After scoring, Del Basso slid across the ice on his head. According to Puck Daddy, Del Basso is a co-owner of the team which means he only embarrassed himself.
Rams quarterback Sam Bradford went down in the first quarter of the Rams preseason game against the Browns last night with a left knee injury. Bradford was playing in his second game since returning from a season-ending ACL tear of the same knee last year. Initially it was believed that Bradford's injury was not that serious; one league source told Adam Schefter that initial tests did not show any damage and that the Rams "dodged a bullet." Jeff Fisher was cautiously optimistic as well, noting he was walking around the locker room after the game. According to Chris Mortensen, an MRI today revealed that it was in fact a tear.
Armonty Bryant sort of rolled up on Bradford on the play, but it was pretty light. Earlier in the same drive, Browns linebacker Paul Kruger also hit Bradford in the knee, again, not viciously, but certainly made contact with the same knee.
Fisher is expected to confirm the news at a press conference this evening at 5:00 p.m. CT.
Yasiel Puig, You Are Not That Fast
Yasiel Puig tried to score from second base on a ground-ball double play in the bottom of the sixth inning against the Mets. He did not score; he turned a double play into a triple play. So...it did not go well.
The Mets had a 7-2 lead at the time and Puig must have thought he'd catch the Mets napping, but Lucas Duda almost immediately saw him making the turn and easily threw him out from first. Unless, was Travis d'Arnaud blocking the plate? Let's forget about that.
Lucas Duda wanted to hit the car wash.
Alternate narrative: Yasiel Puig is so good he turned a double play into a triple play. Think about it.
Strongest quake in 25 years strikes California's Bay Area
By Josh Levs, Rick Martin, and Carma Hassan, CNN
This USGS image shows the location of the California earthquake August 24, 2014
(CNN) -- A 6.1-magnitude earthquake struck Northern California early Sunday, the U.S. Geological Survey said.
It was the strongest to hit the Bay Area since 1989, when a quake struck during the World Series.
Sunday's earthquake struck 4 miles northwest of American Canyon, 6 miles southwest of Napa, and 9 miles southeast of Sonoma, according to the USGS.
CNN affiliate KTVU reported a church in Vallejo was heavily damaged and lost its bell tower.
There were no immediate reports of injuries.
Napa County Fire Capt. Jim Christenson said units were driving around looking for damage.
A dispatcher for the Napa County Sheriff's Office said there was some water damage.
CNN's Augie Martin, who lives in San Francisco, described the earthquake as "the softest, most rolling 6.0 earthquake I've ever felt. It was obvious -- no doubt. But living in the city proper, it was more of a roller than a sharp jolt."
AP Photo: Lyall DavenportThis photo provided by Lyall Davenport shows damage to a building in Napa, Calif. early Sunday, Aug. 24, 2014. Officials say an earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 6.0 has been reported in California's northern San Francisco Bay area.
