Morning links: DT Colin Cole on hot yoga

Thanks to the folks who showed up for the Seahawks Insider gathering last night, along with those who participated in the online chat. I think it went well, and we’ll try to do it again next year.

Single game tickets for the Seahawks go on sale on Monday.

Ben Malcolmson of reports that Seattle’s coaching staff already has broken down film on all 13 regular-season opponents for the upcoming season.
