Happy 61, Pete

DENVER – Pete Carroll planned to celebrate his 61st birthday a little early today by throwing his age.

The Seahawks’ third-year coach just did it – and then some – by firing a special football from the 50-yard line out of the end zone at Sports Authority Filed at Mile High. Carroll won’t turn 61 until Sept. 15, but he used this opportunity in the mile-high air to achieve his yearly goal.

Carroll’s heave actually landed 2 or 3 yards beyond the back edge of the 10-yard end zone, so he made it with room to spare.
