Pete Carroll and Russell Okung get their Starbucks on for charity


Beast-mocha. Hawkachino. Pete Carroll tea?

No neither of those qualify as a real drink, but maybe they should be something that Starbucks thinks about incorporating. Maybe?

In all seriousness Pete Carroll, Russell Okung and many other Seattle Seahawks kicked off a week-long charity event call “A better Seattle” on Wednesday afternoon by serving Starbucks coffee around the greater Seattle area. Hey check it out, Carroll himself looks like a natural barista!

The project was launched with the goal to benefit “at risk-youth” in the Seattle area and will extend till Tuesday with different events and happenings. This is the first year of the Carroll-driven charity and Starbucks contributed $50,000 via the Starbucks Foundation to launch the project.

The Seahawks are getting ready to take on the St. Louis Rams in a divisional contest on Monday. The Rams will be without their starting quarterback, Sam Bradford for the contest, but at least they’ll be at home at Edward Jones. Going into Century Link Field never seems to work out well for starting quarterbacks, much less backups like Kellen Clemons. Not that the Seahawks have been any worse on the road so far this season.
