Fun times with the Hawks


There are a couple of really fun stories from the Sound on the Seahawks this morning. Neither are earth-shattering pieces of journalism, but both are just interesting.

The first comes from the News Tribune. And it's just the beginning of a notebook. But it poses a question: What of Shaun Alexander had signed with this Sunday's opponent, the Arizona Cardinals, in the offseason? Where would he be now?

The other is out of the Times. It's about the art of the game-winning field goal. Take a twirl through the mind of a kicker and see what Josh Brown does to win a game with his foot. There's also a P-I story (finally) on Brown's big hit in Denver.

There's a lot of stuff about Sunday's game, including the Times' look at former USC teammates Matt Lienart and Lofa Tatupu, a piece on the Hawks' rookies, along with a sad Pat Tillman story.
