Nothing satisfies the soul of Seattle sports fans quite like premature and so far unjustifiable panic. Belly up to the buffet table, Hawksmen:
The AP reported some interesting quotes from Shaun Alexander regarding the teeny-weeny-itsy-bitsy chance that his foot, the fracture of which kept him on the sidelines for a good chunk of '06, may still be -- have you stashed away your revolvers yet? -- a little bit broken:
"I don't even want to get another X-ray until after this camp," a smiling Alexander said after his fourth consecutive day of occasionally carrying the ball during no-contact, no-pads drills. "If the X-ray shows it's still cracked, it's like, 'OK. What does that mean?'"What does it mean? Well, for us personally, it means we're more nervous than Pacman Jones' publicity agent talking to Roger Goodell over a dying cell phone.
But, ultimately, long-range, nothing to get worried about until training camp. Besides, July is traditionally the best month for drinking out of self-pity, since if you have to pass out outdoors you won't freeze to death.
