Seahawks interested in Vick?
The idea that Michael Vick could land in Seattle has been mentioned to me by multiple league sources over the past couple of days. What what I've heard, new Seahawks head coach Jim Mora had a great relationship with Vick while the two were in Atlanta -- despite the negative reports circulating through the rumor mill right now -- and that he actually "cares" about the former Falcon and his future. I've also been told that, from a public relations standpoint, Seattle would offer Vick some protection from the media since it isn't a city that draws the kind of overwhelming national attention as a Dallas or a Pittsburgh.

Why Yankees aren't after Halladay
The Yankees have an interest in Seattle lefty Jarrod Washburn, but the Mariners aren't sure what they will do with the veteran before today's 4 p.m. trading deadline, when Roy Halladay is expected to be a Blue Jay. The Yanks are among the teams that have checked in on Washburn. However, as of yesterday afternoon, the two sides still had not discussed names. In addition, Hal Steinbrenner has ruled the team cannot take on significant money the rest of the season. That is a huge reason why the Yanks are not players on Halladay.(New York Post)
Jonah Hill annoyed with Phil Jackson
Actor Jonah Hill's agent has Lakers season tickets, courtside seats right next to the home team's bench. Hill gets to sit in them four or five times a season, experiencing the good and the bad that comes with such a prime position. The good: Being able to chat with Kobe Bryant. Hill told Jimmy Kimmel that Bryant told the actor, " 'I love your movies,' and he started quoting 'Superbad' and stuff. It was mind-blowing for me." The bad: This can happen when you change seats near the Lakers bench and Phil Jackson notices and become annoyed.
