The Seahawks have finished practicing. I’ll be bolting out of here early to avoid the expected storm and traffic problems that will entail. Matt Hasselbeck practiced and appeared to be full strength. He wore a glove and some padding on his broken left hand/finger. He held the ball while under center to avoid having the football hit his hand upon being snapped. He said he’ll take some snaps starting tomorrow. The Hasselbeck audio is here.

    I was so tired of seeing Hasselbeck in short sleeves on the field and looking like some homeless dude huddled up in a parka, knit hat, and hand warmer muff on the sidelines.

    I figure God made pain killers for just such situations. Man up, Matthew.

    ??? Man up???

    Let me get this straight, raymaines….You want our Pro Bowl QB to freeze to death on the sidelines because it makes him more of a man? Brilliant.

    It’s one thing to go sleeveless during the game…At least you’re moving around and can keep warm. It’s totally different on the sideline when you’re standing still and trying to get mentally ready for the next series. And in case you missed it, everyone (on both teams) was doing whatever they could to warm up on the sideline.

  4. I assume raymaines was running around naked the whole game in the Hawk’s Nest.

  5. Wow, I didn’t realize painkillers had the side effect of keeping you warm… Or maybe only the liquid over the bar variety does that.

  6. Man up? The guy is playing w/a broken finger and sprained knee…
