Happy Blue Friday, 12s. Here's a look at what's out there today, November 19, about your Seattle Seahawks.
Marshawn Lynch Goes Back To School To Promote Environmental Education
Marshawn Lynch is a smart man. He majored in social welfare at a prestigious university in California-Berkeley, he's known for handing out sage wisdom to players regarding their mental health and their money and he's even been known to help guys like Tyler Lockett sort out their 401(k) plans.
But the legendary Seahawks running back apparently still has a lot to learn when it comes to climate change — and he's encouraging youth in his local Bay Area community to learn as well.
New Zealand-American shoe and apparel company Allbirds is teaming up with Lynch's Fam 1st Family Foundation and EARTHseed Farm, a 14-acre solar-powered organic farm in Sonoma County, Calif., to promote environmental education and expand access to nature for Bay Area youth. To kick things off, Lynch sat in on a science lesson at his alma mater of Oakland Technical High School for a refresher course on climate change. Watch as Lynch learns alongside his teenage counterparts, and gets some hands-on experience making clouds with liquid nitrogen and lighting methane gas aflame:

2015 Seahawks Wide Receiver Trio Named One Of The Best Of All Time
While the Pete Carroll era of Seahawks football has relied heavily on the run game, a number of talented pass-catchers have worn the blue and green over the past decade-plus. And in 2015, a trio of Seahawks wide receivers put up numbers that rival some of the top receiving trios in league history.
Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse, and Tyler Lockett were listed at number 10 in Aaron Schatz's list of the top 12 receiving trios of all time. That season, Baldwin (78 rec., 1,069 yards, 14 TD), Kearse (49 rec., 690 yards, 5 TD) and Lockett (51 rec., 664 yards, 6 TD) helped lead the Seahawks to a 10-6 record, as an ultra-efficient Russell Wilson posted a career-high 110.1 passer rating — fueled by a stretch of five straight games with at least 3 touchdown passes and zero interceptions during the second half of the season. All three receivers caught at least 70% of their intended passes, marking the first time a trio of receivers had done that since 1983 (the feat was achieved again in 2016 by the Minnesota Vikings).
