If the film White Men Can’t Jump taught me anything, it’s that you should never take a Puerto Rican woman on Jeopardy! for granted and people in California take their street basketball very seriously. In fact, if you’re ever hanging around anyone from the Venice Streetball League, no matter what they look like, you probably shouldn’t accept a challenge to play one-on-one, because you will lose.At least, that’s the lesson that unemployed wide receiver Terrell Owens learned recently, when he was hanging out in a gym and confronted by Venice legend Mani Love, who stands just 4’5”. Love was looking for a little one-on-one action with the man whose most notable recent news includes begging the New York Jets for a job via Twitter and living life according to a Maury Povich script.As for the challenge, it went down a little like this…Mani Love: “Terrell, wanna play one-on-one?” Terrell: “I don’t wanna do it to you dawg.” Mani Love: “You don’t wanna do it to me? Or you don’t want it do

Asked about the progress of his rookie quarterback, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll acknowledged that there have been some obstacles for Russell Wilson to overcome, but overall he’s pleased with the development the University of Wisconsin product has made through seven games. Carroll has been careful to keep a lid on Seattle’s offense while the team has compiled a 4-3 record...
In my weekly column, we will take a long look at two rookies. I will compare their performance to date against my original expectations of them. Let’s continue this series off by looking back at Seattle Seahawks running back Robert Turbin and Indianapolis Colts running back Vick Ballard after their week seven games:
Robert Turbin, RB SEAHere is what I saw in college...
Outside of some sore ribs and an ankle that was a little gimpy, injuries never became a major problem for Doug Baldwin during his breakout rookie season.
It's why Baldwin was able to lead the Seattle Seahawks in receiving, becoming the first undrafted rookie to lead his team in pass catches in more than 50 years.
This year, it's been a different health story for Baldwin...
Who knew Terrell Owens and Mani Love actually worked out at the same gym? I’m glad they do, otherwise we wouldn’t get to see this great 1 on 1 matchup.
I’m not shocked that Mani Love won. Just appalled by TO’s strategy in the game. You have like 3 ft on the guy, just post him up instead of shooting NBA range three pointers. It’s that simple.
P.S. Not sure if the gunshot...
Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is on a mission to validate his franchise as a serious contender.
Well Seattle takes on Detroit at 1:00 this Sunday, and Sherman decided to go Transformers on us.
We all know Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson carries the Label Megatron, and carries it very well.
Well I’m assuming Sherman wants Johnson to know he is his equal because...
PRIME TIME PLAYER
Before they match up on Sunday, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman changed his Twitter name to let everyone know he's not intimidated by Megatron.
Always a Bright Spot
On days when the Seattle Seahawks‘ defense can’t even hold on (granted they are on the field for the majority of the game) and the offense is… well, being the Seahawks offense, the Special Teams unit helps out both units.
Be it by giving the opposing offense awful starting field position, or Leon WashingtonÂ electrifying the game with a stunning return...
Ouch, a heart breaker in SF
Another road game, and another lack of a passing game, or scratch that, another lack of a receiving game is more like it.
The Seahawks have had this issue for the balance of this century, yes, even in the Super Bowl year.
It’s nothing new to write about, or to get peeved about, or to even care about really.
This is just one of those things that is...
Leave it to Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman to come up with a new way of talking about an opponent without saying a word.
Sherman, who drew plenty of attention after Seattle's win over New England for his comments about Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, changed his name on his Twitter page Wednesday to ''Optimus Prime,'' a Transformers character. That wouldn...
The Seahawks responded to comments from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and his belief that Seattle’s defensive backs were overly physical with San Francisco’s wide receivers in the Thursday night game, to the point he intended on speaking with the league. You’re supposed to be happy after you win a football game, right? I’m not big for media anyway. That’s just who he is, I guess...
Last Thursday’s road game against the 49ers was supremely frustrating to watch. The Seahawks looked awful, and that’s led to a lot of fans voicing opinions of the “fire coach X and/or bench player Y” variety. That’s understandable, but I think it’s premature to be calling for changes that drastic. Right now, the Seahawks are 3-0 at home and 1-3 on the road, with...
Seahawks vs Lions Gambling?
Headline: Hawks Look to Bounce Back in Motor City
The Seattle Seahawks fly east this week off 10 days rest looking to rebound from a 13-6 loss at San Francisco. Their opposition this week the Detroit Lions who themselves are coming off a close low scoring loss on Monday night.
It looks like your classic Offense vs. Defense matchup in this one needless...
The Detroit Lions suffered a pair of difficult losses on Monday Night Football, losing the game to the Chicago Bears, as well as wide receiver Nate Burleson for the rest of the 2012 NFL season after the wide receiver broke his leg following a third quarter catch in the 13-7 loss. That drops the Lions to just 2-4 with a difficult contest next week against the Seattle Seahawks.
