I mean what could be cooler than ninjas and turtles? Independently, they’re awesome. Together, along with a rodent teacher called Splinter, they should be unstoppable. But somehow, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie sucks. I haven’t watched it, but if you’ve followed my column, you’re aware how much of a slave to Rotten Tomatoes I am. And a 20% on Rotten Tomatoes is not good. And as a side note, how in the world do these turtles stay teenagers all these years? Don’t they ever grow up? Although I suppose “Thirty Something Mutant Ninja Turtles” doesn’t have the same ring. And at some point someone has to inform them that “cowabunga” is no longer cool. But I digress.

Well here are four things I’ve learned from watching the game – two concerning the Bears and two concerning the Seahawks.
