A road trip for the Seahawks

Here's the most interesting Seahawks news of the day.

No, it's not that Grant Wistrom was practicing Wednesday. No, it's not that Jerry Rice was in camp (low in notebook). No, it's not the great play of Jordan Babineaux.

No, the big news comes out of downtown Spokane. That's where the Seahawks will be this afternoon, instead of sweating at practice in Cheney. They'll arrive at River Park Square around 4:30 p.m. on buses to view a special screening of "Invincible." The AMC theater is holding an open-only-to-the-big-guys-from-Seattle early showing of the Mark Wahlberg story about former Philadelphia Eagle Vince Papale.

UPDATE:Earlier in the day, we had been informed the Seahawks were watching "Snakes on a Plane." That was wrong. Sorry.

The whole idea opens a world of questions. Will Walter Jones have to pull up more than one armrest to fit? Will anyone want to sit behind him? How many free popcorn refills will the AMC folks have to shell out? Milk Duds or Raisinettes?

If you want to see the Hawks, you have a chance when they get off the buses. According to a press release, "the public is invited to stop by for a glimpse of their favorite Seahawks players!"
