Thursday Round-Up: Happy St. Patrick's Day with a Side of March Madness

A daily link round-up of what’s “out there” about the Seattle Seahawks.


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today – Thursday, March 17 – about your Seattle Seahawks.

March Madness Meets St. Patrick's Day

Today's round-up brought to you by a stomach full of corned beef and shepherd's pie. And like you, me and a lot of other people, Seahawks players are both in the St. Patrick's Day spirit and into the NCAA Tournament today.

Linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis apparently takes St. Patrick's Day seriously after spending his college days in Boston.

Though Pierre-Louis also shares an important message on a holiday known for revelry.

Receiver Tyler Lockett and linebacker Brock Coyle are also in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day.

As for the day's hoops action, there's no questioning who Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham and former University of Miami basketball player is pulling for tonight in the south region.

If you want the experience of watching the game at a sports bar without leaving the comforts of home, defensive tackle Jordan Hill demonstrates the proper technique.

Lockett, meanwhile, isn't happy with Baylor's loss to Yale.

And punter Jon Ryan is really in the March Madness/St. Patrick's Day spirit.

OK, so that doesn't actually have anything to do with St. Patrick's Day or the tournament, but seeing as Ryan is wearing a green basketball jersey, it's making the cut anyway.

Tweet of the Day

Today's Tweet of the day comes from the brand new Twitter account of running back Thomas Rawls. So if you're not already giving him a follow, now's a good time to do so.
