Best answer 5. Skittles. That just took me to the whole naked thing [Lynch’s appearance, in the buff, in ESPN the Magazine’s Body Issue]. I think he actually looks pretty good. He looks better than I thought he was going to look.

Best answer 10. There’s 11 on the field, so the fans are the voice, that part of the team. It’s interesting that they say 12th Man and not 12th Person. I could never get away with that as an elected official.

Best answer 5. Skittles. As a matter of fact, we celebrated with them at city hall, but I like M&Ms better. And Dove. Ohhh, Dove. There’s a lot of good chocolate out there.

The Answers: 1. Pete Carroll, 2. 43-8, 3. The NFC, 4. CenturyLink Field, 5. Skittles, 6. Legion of Boom, 7. Baltimore Orioles, 8. Wagner, 9. Richard Sherman’s deflection of a last-second pass by Colin Kaepernick in the NFC Championship game, which effectively sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl, 10.
