The Seahawks appear to be pretty loose: going into this weekend's game. Starts slow, crescendos into the funny...

I'll bet all the other coaches in the NFL were taking their children or grand children toys for granted. Thanks vito90-Great post.

That was great. Nice find vito. Does anyone know what this video was/is for?

Not sure where it's from, but the voiceover was by Kenny Mayne of ESPN, no? He's a Washington native, although it's not clear for whom he was doing this. The logo was for NASN, which is a European network covering US sports, but it likely was a re-use of something either for ESPN or one of the local Seattle affiliates/cable networks (but probably not Fox Sports, since Mayne's an ESPN/ABC guy throughout his career). Obligatory: "We want the juice box, and we're going to drink it."

I think it was linked to YOUTUBE in September so I doubt they are having that much fun preping for the Pack, but great video.

"Mayne Event" is a feature of ESPN's "NFL Countdown" pregame show. Kenny did a pretty funny one last week on taking the bye week off after going 14-3 on story ideas during the season.

Good stuff. When the footage switched to the two receivers beating the shit out of one another with the pool noodled, I damn near pissed myself. (I didn't really think it was funny, I just have a problem with doing that.)

"That's a little baseball reference". Classic. And I like Olerud showing up for no reason.

Well, technically, he didn't show up for no reason. He's looking for tickets; you know, being a "huge Rams fan" and all. I thought that was a nice touch.

I didn't know Kenny Mayne went to training camp with the Seahawks. Thanks Vito for the video. Great stuff. At the Rams practice facility in Earth City, MO (right by my work), they have an outdoor field with fences and hedges blocking the views from the street. Now, every time I drive by, I'll know, they are on the slip n' slide.

Looks like that extra preperation didn't help the Seahawks. Although the field was slick enough it could have been used as a giant slip-n-slide. At the start of the season who would have thought the Packers running game would be so much more dominant than that of the Seahawks?
