Time to 12th Man up, Seahawk fans

Pitchers and catchers report in 32 days: Despite a nearly historic fourth-quarter comeback, the Seattle Seahawks fell to the Atlanta Falcons, 30-28, in the NFC divisional playoffs.

A heart-breaking loss after hopes were raised should be good preparation for Seattle sports fans who were led to believe that the owners of the Sacramento Kings weren’t using them to get a new arena out of Sacramento.

Be our guest (with approval of credit): Florida’s Walt Disney World has freshened up its Magic Kingdom area with a New Fantasyland and attractions that feature characters from Disney classics such as “Beauty and the Beast.” New technology brings to life the Beast’s enchanted housewares, including Mrs. Potts the teapot and Lumiere the candlestick.

That technology also is used in the Magic Kingdom gift shops where your wallet will magically come to life, fly out of your pocket and float your credit cards to a waiting sales clerk.

Golden goosebumps: The red carpet fashion parade prior to Sunday night’s Golden Globes awards in Beverly Hills, Calif., was unseasonably chilly for those in strapless gowns and skimpier outfits.

Asked, “Who are you wearing?” several stars grabbed actual fashion designers Christian Dior, Calvin Klein and Dolce &Gabbana and threw them over their shoulders to keep warm.
