Quake, rattle and roll
In case you were too busy Cyber Monday-ing and missed out on sports and everything not involving deeply discounted gadgets, we've got you covered. Here's everything you missed last night.
After a week of hype, the Seattle Seahawks publicly humiliated the New Orleans Saints like they were Taylor Swift seeking revenge on an ex-boyfriend. And after the 34-7 trouncing, they are never getting back together. Like ever. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson channeled his inner Drew Brees and threw for 310 yards and three touchdowns. Brees, on the other hand, seemed to channel his inner Geno Smith.
As if the Seahawks weren't impressive enough, their fans wanted to do their part, so they did what any self-respecting crowd would do and caused an earthquake. Just Seattle? Yup, just Seattle. According to the Seattle Times, a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake was registered after Michael Bennett's 22-yard fumble return for a touchdown in the first quarter. I'm no geologist (so much so, I'm not even sure if that's the right specialty to register such an occurrence), but I feel fairly confident in saying that's a LOT of jumping up and down and screaming.
It was second such earthquake at CenturyLink Field. The first occurred during the Seahawks' 2011 win over the Saints. At least the Saints know they inspire that kind of passion. That has to count for something during the long, painfully quiet six-hour flight home, right?
Fun with Shabazz
Around the same time as the Seattle earthquake, a smaller -- albeit unregistered -- quake was taking place across the country in Storrs, Conn. UConn point guard Shabazz Napier nailed a second-chance, game-winning jumper as time expired to give the No. 12 Huskies a 65-64 win over the No. 15 Florida Gators. Shabazz was all like, "Move over, Chris Davis" as the ball went through the net, and he promptly ran outside of the arena in shock and celebration. Naturally, the crowd was pretty pleased.

Speaking of Chris Davis, the newly crowned Auburn legend was given a well-deserved hero's welcome after walking into his geology class on Monday.
Just got a standing ovation from my Geology class... Wow #WarEagle— Chris Davis (@chris11au) December 2, 2013
Wow, I thought his touchdown was amazing. But he actually, GASP, goes to class? Now THAT'S amazing.
Ice cube dinner?
Noted terrifying individual and UFC champion Ronda Rousey stopped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Monday night to talk about fighting with her mom and holidays with the Rousey family. Obviously, I'm far too petrified of her to say anything negative about this interview, but, my trembling aside, it's actually entertaining.
