Seahawks punter Jon Ryan pulling down the ball after a low hike before what was supposed to be a punt and then trying to make a play out of it was awkward, very awkward. Ryan ended up breaking his nose after landing head first during the play. Seattle was lucky to escape with a win against the Vikings during brutally cold conditions in Minneapolis. (AP Photo/Nam Y.

Seahawks punter Jon Ryan is a Canadian from the province of Saskatchewan. He was born in the city of Regina. So it wasn’t surprising to hear that on Tuesday he showed up for a match between the Everett Silvertips and the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League. I was there working, at Xfinity Arena in Everett, but didn’t have a chance for much downtime. I do love the fans, though. They’re a great bunch. Ryan was there despite having busted up his nose during a wild playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings two days prior.
