Seahawks Filing Absurd Trademark Requests
With the chance to become back-to-back Super Bowl champs next weekend, the Seahawks are reportedly trying to capitalize on their recent success by filing some strange trademark requests - including "12" - that may raise some eyebrows.
The Best Kind of Revenge
New Mexico guard Hugh Greenwood had a huge game -- 22 points and 8 rebounds -- during the Lobos' win over UNLV Wednesday night. After the game, he credited a Twitter troll who made nasty "jokes" about his mother's battle with breast cancer for motivating him to reach another level.

Lovely Lady of the Day
Legendary model Elle Macpherson -- who has a record five cover appearances for the SI Swimsuit Issue -- is a very deserving recipient of today's throwback LLOD honors. Macpherson, who will turn 51(!) this spring, pretty much looks just as good today as she did in the '80s. Amazing. (Click here for full-sized gallery)
Julian Edelman won Throwback Thursday this week with this 'Growing Pains' parody video.

But Brady Doesn't Mind Talking About Balls
Manny Pacquiao does a pretty great Scottish accent, which is something I didn't expect to type today.
@emmanuelpacquiao stopped by the Panic Room last week to talk football, boxing, and his upcoming film. And, in a surprise development, he revealed what he and #StevenNaismith have in common. Our entire interview with Manny goes live on NBCSports.com tomorrow. #PacMan

Odds & Ends
Kobe has a torn rotator cuff and has been ruled out indefinitely... An Australian Open ball boy took a 121 MPH serve straight to the genetals... Tim Cahill is still a darn good finisher... Noted baseball enthusiast Jack White got his Topps trading card... There's now a creepy looking painting of Bud Selig hanging inside Petco Park... The New York Post's cover this morning was not kind to Tom Brady and Gisele... Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir will be part of NBC's Super Bowl coverage... Wale wants to team up with Kanye West to design the next Wizards uniforms... Ranking the hottest women to appear on Entourage, I'll take Sloan all day, every day.
These are tough times for Hope Solo, but hopefully she'll remember she still has some pretty passionate fans in her corner.
Happy Birthday, Kobe's 81-Point Game!
Kobe may be on the shelf for the time being, but this historic performance happened nine years ago today.
