Thursday Round-Up: On-screen Superheroes Chris Pratt & Chris Evans place Super Bowl bet for charity

A morning link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks



Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Thursday, Jan. 22 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Super Bowl Matchup Leads To Bet Between Superheroes

After this past Sunday's conference title games, Lake Stevens, Wash. native, Seahawks super-fan, and actor Chris Pratt, who played Star-Lord in the hit movie *Guardians of the Galaxy *got into a fun Twitter exchange with fellow actor Chris Evans, a fan of the New England Patriots who plays Captain America in the Marvel movies of the same name.

The initial social media back-and-forth between the two on-screen superheroes led to a bet between their Super Bowl-bound teams.

A Seahawks win will bring Evans (Captain America) to the Pacific Northwest for a visit at Seattle Children's Hospital, while a Patriots win will bring Pratt (Star-Lord) to Christopher's Haven, a Boston-based non-profit that supports the families of children undergoing treatment for cancer.
