Good morning, 12th Man.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, February 12 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman and Super Bowl MVP linebacker Malcolm Smith appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night to talk about last week's win over the Denver Broncos. Part one of their conversation with Kimmel is embedded above and part two can be found right here.
Linebacker Malcolm Smith also joined the Rich Eisen Podcast at NFL.com, discussing what it was like hoisting the Lomardi and Super Bowl MVP trophies last week.
Defensive end Michael Bennett also joined NFL.com's podcast with network personality Dave Dameshek.
Tomorrow, six Seahawks - offensive tackles Breno Giacomini and Russell Okung, wide receivers Sidney Rice and Golden Tate, running back Marshawn Lynch, and tight end Cooper Helfet - arrive in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, where they'll join forces with players from around the League to bring football camps to less fortunate children. The effort is spearheaded by Giacomini and Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnridge, who took the program - American Football Without Barriers - to China last year.
Terry Blount of ESPN.com notes the Seahawks have the sixth-toughest overall schedule and the third-toughest road schedule next season.
Sheldon Spencer of ESPN.com passes along some video recapping wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, linebacker Bobby Wagner, and defensive ends Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril's visit to ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn. last week in which the foursome impersonates some of their favorite network personalities.
Stuart Muszynski of the Huffington Post details how the unrivaled spirit of the 12th Man can transform not only football, but America. Muszynski writes, "The '12th man' tells us that we can do and be anything. It injects a pride and sense of responsibility that, together, we can move forward. ... We each can be the "12th man" to create wins in our families, schools, communities and nation. If enough of us make that choice, we can bring about a tipping point for a new attitude about success and making a difference. Every human being needs "wins" to be successful at life, and we each can help. The Seahawks have shown us that the "12th man" can inspire wins, and wins can ensure more wins."
