Before we get to caught up in all this Seattle hosting the Super bowl news that Aaron Levine of Q13 Fox reported last night. Ask yourself this question.

The Seattle Seahawks have taken the initial steps to one day…”possibly” host the Super Bowl. Aaron mentioned the...

Aaron Rogers grabbed the NFL MVP. Not a bad season for the Green Bay Packers QB...I'm sure he'd of preferred to win two more games though.
Other NFL players that came out as winners included:
Baltimore defensive end/linebacker Terrell Suggs, Defensive Player of the Year.
San Francisco's rookie coach Jim Harbaugh, Coach of the Year.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers earned 48 votes to two for New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees (who won Offensive Player of the Year) in balloting by 50 media members who regularly cover the NFL.

The Blazers announced recently that oft-injured former #1 pick Greg Oden would undergo arthroscopic procedure on his right knee in order to remove debris. In September of 2007 he had micro-fracture surgery on that knee. Quote: Portland came out with a press statement after the surgery saying that it was "successful." That is all well and good, but will Oden see the court...
Book It! Feb. 26 in Orlando
Where the hell would the Portland Trail Blazers be without LaMarcus Aldridge? I would say looking forward to the next draft lottery.
He has been Portland’s best player since Brandon Roy’s knees gave up on him and he is having another fantastic season.
As of February 5th he has the Blazers in the thick of the playoff race and he leads the team in...

If you put Flavor Flave and Jerry Seinfeld and Ferris Buehler in Super Bowl commercials you pretty much have my attention.
Here's my 3 favorite commercials from this years Big game.
Love/Hate Like Milk Hot Dogs
Yesterday’s wildly fluctuating game in Colorado between the Vancouver Canucks and the Avalanche showcased Kevin Bieksa at his hard-working best near the end.
His re-enactment of Superman saw him catapult his body across the ice to prevent the Av’s TJ Galiardi from scoring on the empty net with about 51 seconds to go, and then he reunited with his...
or is Eli Manning going to win a Super Bowl in his brother's dome?
They called him up for one game, sent him back, and now what? It's strange. For a guy who played 29 regular season games and five playoff games with tremendous poise, the Canucks really haven't been keen on giving him a look this year. Tanev has the ability to play the transition game the Canucks are built upon that Aaron Rome or Andrew Alberts or especially Alex Sulzer don...
Byron Bitz fired one shot in over eight minutes against the Avalanche on Sunday but contributed in the first period with a number of big hits and a solid fight with Cody McLeod. What did you think of his debut in a Canucks jersey? At the very least Vancouver seems to have found another "tough guy" to bolster the bottom six if Bitz can shake off the remaining rust.
LAZY SUNDAY, WAKE UP IN THE LATE AFTERNOON!
Hopefully you’re waking up a little bit before the late afternoon for a two reasons.
The first is because you don’t want to miss the Super Bowl at 3pm.
The second is you don’t want to miss the Canucks Morning Java, which you are reading right now, so obviously you aren’t missing it.
So yesterday the Canucks pulled a...
Love this play by UW tonight vs. USC. SMOOTH.
Nate Tomlinson was fouled with one second remaining by E.J. Singler and sank the first free throw before deliberately missing the second to give Colorado a 72-71 win over Oregon Saturday night.
Oregon's Olu Ashaolu tied it at 71 with 7.6 seconds left and was fouled by Askia Booker, but he missed the free throw, and Andre Roberson corralled the rebound for Colorado.
