Five things possibly overheard in Seahawks locker room while they waited out the national anthem before Tennessee game.
1 “Oh say, can you see ... that roll of athletic tape on the training table? Pass it over here, would ya?”
2 “Sorry, Russell, but this could damage your squeaky-clean advertising image. Not to mention your 2032 presidential campaign.”
3 “I heard the Mariners thought about doing an anthem protest their last week of the season. But no fans showed up to notice if they did.”
4 “It’s cool that NFL execs and owners have our backs in this moment. If only they cared about our brains in 20 years.”
5 “Look on the bright side: If we keep playing as lousy as we started, we won’t have to go to the White House and kiss up to President Trump.”
