What we learned from Seahawks-Cowboys

Along with finding out that, yep, the first-team offense still knows where the end zone is, here are five other things we learned in Seattle’s 27-17 preseason win over Dallas Thursday night.

Protesting Kaepernick sits during anthem

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said he refused to stand during the national anthem before Friday’s preseason game in protest of the country’s racial inequalities.

Romo may miss 6-10 weeks

FRISCO, Texas — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo suffered a broken bone in his back on the third play of Thursday night's preseason game but coach Jason Garrett said the injury would not cost the veteran the entire 2016 season.

Seahawk starters get on track

As the pinpoint pass floated into Paul Richardson’s arms, thrown so precisely that it was nearly un-uncatchable, Russell Wilson pumped his fist, then rushed into the end zone to join a rapidly expanding celebration.

White Sox walk off on M’s

CHICAGO — Todd Frazier had two hits and three RBIs, including a game-winning, run-scoring single in the ninth inning as the Chicago White Sox rallied to beat the Seattle Mariners 7-6 on Thursday night at U.S. Cellular Field.

Baker leads a deep and talented Washington secondary into the season

Beautiful day, it was, when Jimmy Lake took his first steps toward constructing one of college football’s best defensive secondaries. Ideal day, actually, for a stroll around the Factoria neighborhood that was home to one of the nation’s most coveted safeties.

Lochte charged for false report of robbery

RIO DE JANEIRO — Rio police have charged U.S. swimmer Ryan Lochte for making a false report of robbery over an incident that took place during the Olympics, according to the Associated Press.

Dodgers acquire C Ruiz for Ellis

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers exchanged one backup catcher for another on Thursday, the kind of deal that normally attracts little attention. This one gets headlines because of the big names involved. The Dodgers sent A.J. Ellis, one of their most popular players and Clayton Kershaw’s preferred catcher, to the Philadelphia Phillies for Carlos Ruiz.

Everybody Out: Backpacking from Buck Creek Pass to Liberty Cap

Once a year, my good friend Liz and I make plans for a one- or two-night ladies backpacking trip. This is a very sacred, special trip for us because we both have daughters that are three. Our girls are six days apart and have known each other since they were three months old. First comes planning for the trip, which involves asking husbands or relatives to watch our kiddos. Logistics ensue, and luckily we usually figure it out.

Seattle ties Houston after late goal

SEATTLE — Nicolas Lodeiro struck again, scoring in second-half stoppage time to help the Seattle Sounders salvage a 1-1 draw with the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday night at BBVA Compass Stadium in Houston.
