Russell Wilson’s return for a workout at Rangers’ spring training March 28 “a big deal” to Texas

The most famous Rule 5 draftee in baseball is due back for another cameo with the Texas Rangers the last week of this month.

The Rangers have announced Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will workout with Texas for the second consecutive year at its spring-training camp in Surprise, Arizona, on March 28. The plan is the same as last year: the two-time Super Bowl quarterback, a minor-league second baseman at the low Class-A level during his college years at North Carolina State,  is scheduled to go through infield drills with the Rangers in the morning, speak to their minor-league players and

Richard Sherman, Pete Carroll featured in USA Network documentary debuting tonight

Richard Sherman talks often of the lessons he learned from growing up in Compton, California, just south of Los Angeles, and the impact those experiences have had in shaping his adult life — which this week included him becoming a father for the first time.

Tonight, you can watch Sherman revisit some of those experiences of Compton while helping a kid who has lost both parents to AIDS in the fourth annual “NFL Characters Unite” documentary that debuts tonight at 7 p.m. Pacific Time on USA Network.

The film, produced by Charlie Ebersol and Mike Lanigan’s The Company, is part

Seahawks’ Super Bowl game day is finally here in foggy Phoenix

Happy Super Bowl morning from foggy Phoenix, so foggy I can’t see across the street here downtown. I can actually hear fog horns — no kidding — outside my hotel. A Seattle kind of morning.

With Seahawks fans everywhere in this city. University of Phoenix Stadium might become CenturyLink Field South today.

The Seahawks’ buses are massing at the Arizona Grand Resort hotel a few miles south of where I am. I’ll be heading to the stadium just before noon today, well ahead of the 4:30 p.m. local time kickoff.

 

That above is our News Tribune

Winds supposed to calm some; SEA pass rush key to NFC title game; the pick

The Seahawks and Packers woke for NFC title game day to high winds around the Seattle area; some areas got gusts up to 40 and 50 mph. But a high-wind warning for Seattle and suburbs ended at 8 a.m., and those winds are supposed to calm somewhat to 16 miles per hour from kickoff at 12:05 p.m. through much of the game.

Even the local Puget Sound Energy folks are in Seahawks game mode while advising about interruptions of service overnight:

Earliest kickoff in CenturyLink Field history on Sunday. Here’s why:

The question I’ve gotten more often this week than “Why do you like Ohio State?” (born and raised there, wife and sister went there, etc) has been: Why does the Seahawks-Packers NFC championship game begin at 12:05 p.m. Pacific Time while the East Coast Colts-Patriots game starts at 3:30 Pacific? Can’t they just switch and put the later game in the later time zone?

Well, no.

While it may be inconvenient to your tailgating to begin it Sunday morning when you are usually sleeping, the NFL’s multi-zillion television contracts with the networks mandate that CBS and Fox each get a
