Myles Wilkinson won a fantasy football contest to attend Super Bowl XLVII, but his dreams of going to the big game went up in smoke because of a 1981 pot bust.

According to a story by the CBC, the 50-year Canadian man was denied entry to the United States this week because of a conviction for possession of two grams of marijuana over 30 years ago.

Wilkinson, a Seattle Seahawks fan from Vancouver Island, beat out almost four million other players to win the trip to see the San Francisco 49ers play the Baltimore Ravens. But when he got to the airport on Thursday, U.S. customs agents brought up an arrest the man had when he was 19. They denied him entry to the country and ended any chance of making it down to New Orleans for a memorable weekend.

“I had two grams of cannabis. I paid a $50 fine,” Wilkinson told CBC. “I can’t believe that this is happening, for something that happened 32 years ago.”

CBC said Bud Light Canada, who sponsored the contest, invited Wilkinson to their Super Bowl party in Vancouver after hearing about his unfortunate situation.

That’s a nice gesture and Vancouver is a very beautiful city, but let’s be blunt: It’s also the most depressing consolation gift ever.

January 28, 2013

Earl Thomas and Russell Okung were out of position.

Not in a bad way, as in unable to make a play because of it. Instead, each found themselves playing a new position in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, but still found ways to make plays in the NFC’s Seahawks Six-powered 62-35 victory over the AFC at Aloha Stadium.

Thomas, the Seahawks’ All-Pro free safety, intercepted a pass on the second play of the second half that setup the first of three touchdown passes by Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson and pushed the NFC’s lead to 38-14. But he did while playing as the nickel back, sitting on Matt Schaub’s pass to Denver Broncos’ wide receiver Demaryius Thomas in the flat and forcing the Houston Texans’ quarterback to throw to the wrong Thomas.

Okung, who was voted to the Pro Bowl as the NFC’s starting left tackle, also spent time on the right side – a transition that is not as easy as he made it look.

But things like that happen in the Pro Bowl, where preparation time is even more limited than roster size – with three tackles and three cornerbacks for each team.

Or as Okung put it on the field after the game, “Somebody had to do it, and I was willing.”

Then there was Thomas, and no one could doubt that he came to play in a game where the players’ effort was questioned in last year’s Pro Bowl. Thomas wanted to make a statement for the NFC, and especially the Seahawks Six.

He did that with his big interception, as well as on a few other tempo-setting plays.

“I took charge of the DBs back there, and they followed,” said Thomas, who also got some snaps at cornerback.

Thomas then used the opportunity to send a good-natured message to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll while discussing his interception – when he was in man-to-man coverage, but gambled because his quickness and closing speed by letting the Broncos’ Thomas run to the flat.

“Hopefully, coach Carroll saw it and will let me play,” he said through a sly smile that was as good as a wink. “I wanted to put something on film, so coach Carroll can look at it and say, ‘OK, look what we’ve got. He can cover. He can play the slot.’ Maybe I’ll get some action out there.”

Not that Thomas wasn’t already in the middle of just about everything good the Seahawks’ No. 4-ranked defense did during the team’s 11-5 regular season and then the franchise’s first road playoff victory since 1983 in the wild-card round against the Washington Redskins.

But that’s Thomas. Never satisfied. Always looking for ways to do more. Definitely playing with a chip on his shoulder pad despite everything he’s already done in his first three seasons with the team.

“I think it’s all about confidence,” the 5-foot-10 Thomas said of an intangible were he never comes up short. “I don’t care who’s at quarterback. Peyton Manning kind of got me fired up as soon as I got here; he called me out in front of everybody in meetings.

“And look what happened.”

Okung also was making things happen in a game where the NFC ran the ball 27 times – with teammate Marshawn Lynch leading all backs with 21 yards and scoring one of the game’s two rushing TDs – while putting it up 44 times. More than half those passes were thrown by the New York Giants’ Eli Manning (16 of 23), with the New Orleans Saints’ Drew Brees (8 of 11) and Wilson (8 of 10) splitting the rest.

Okung was on the field for eight of the NFC’s 10 scoring drives – six at left tackle, two on the right side. With only three tackles on the roster, someone had to do double duty.

“It was tough, man,” Okung said after his first Pro Bowl experience. “We did it in practice and the new guys had to kind of rotate. It’s something we weren’t used to doing. But we came out on top.”

Even with Thomas and Okung playing out of position.

His team desperate for a road win, Russell Wilson had one simple message before overtime.

This is it, this is the season.

If the Seattle Seahawks didn’t save it, they sure gave their playoff hopes a boost.

Wilson threw two late touchdowns, connecting with Sidney Rice for a 13-yard score with 7:33 left in overtime to lift the Seahawks to a wild 23-17 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

“He’s just so beautifully poised and so confident that it gives himself a chance to play at this level,” coach Pete Carroll said of Wilson.

Unbeaten in five home games, the Seahawks finally figured a way to win on the road after dropping five of their first six, and knocked off the NFC North leaders in the process.

“I just told the guys, `This is what the season comes down to, right here and right now,'” Wilson said.

A 97-yard touchdown drive late in regulation gave the Seahawks a lead that didn’t last, and they finally won it on Rice’s catch after Chicago’s Robbie Gould sent it into overtime with a field goal.

Seattle (7-5) leads the NFC wild-card chase and, despite its frequent struggles on the road has won three in a row in the regular season at Soldier Field.

This one sure was dramatic.

Seattle took a short-lived lead late in regulation on rookie Wilson’s 14-yard pass to Golden Tate, only to watch Gould boot a 46-yard field goal as time expired to send it into the extra period.

The Seahawks won the coin toss and started with the ball on their 20. They ended this one with one final flourish.

Rice hauled in a pass from Wilson and took a shoulder-to-helmet hit from Major Wright that jarred the ball loose and appeared to knock the receiver unconscious as he lunged into the end zone. Rice stayed down for several minutes but eventually walked off the field, and he insisted afterward he was alert the whole time.

“(Medical personnel) rushed out on the field because I had a couple of concussions before, so they just wanted to make sure everything was fine,” he said.

The touchdown, meanwhile, was upheld after a review, and that gave the Seahawks their only road win other than a victory at Carolina.

“The ball didn’t fall our way in some of the games this year,” cornerback Richard Sherman said. “I don’t think we are 1-5 road team. I don’t think we’ve ever been out of the game at the end. I don’t think there was ever a blowout, it always comes down to the last drive, the last play. The football gods were with us today and they helped us out.”

The Seahawks pulled it out even though Marshawn Lynch was held in check with 87 yards rushing. He had a touchdown run in the second quarter, but also fumbled on the game’s opening possession, leading to a score for Chicago.

Wilson threw for 293 yards, ran for 71 and was particularly cool down the stretch, sending Chicago (8-4) to its third loss in four games. That knocked them into a tie with Green Bay for the division lead with the Packers beating Minnesota, and coach Lovie Smith clearly was furious afterward.

“That hasn’t happened to us very often around here,” Smith said. “Terrible job I did getting our football team ready. I thought we were ready to go. Some decisions I made really hurt us early on.”

He was particularly upset at himself for going for it on fourth-and-1 at the 15 early in the second quarter rather than have Gould attempt a field goal with Chicago up 7-0.

Along with that questionable decision, there were more injuries for a team that’s endured its share of late.

Linebacker Brian Urlacher (hamstring) and cornerback Tim Jennings (shoulder) were hurt on the winning drive. Receiver Earl Bennett (concussion) and safety Chris Conte (illness) left earlier in the game. The Bears had already ruled out return specialist Devin Hester (concussion) and guard Chris Spencer (knee) after they were injured against Minnesota. Throw in the torn ACL guard Lance Louis suffered against the Vikings, and the Bears were a short-handed bunch.

Even so, they had their chances.

Jay Cutler threw for 233 yards and two touchdowns. Brandon Marshall added 165 yards receiving, but the Bears ultimately came up short.

“We don’t lose many games like that here – as long as I’ve been here and having a lead that late in the fourth quarter,” Cutler said.

They were leading 14-10 when punter Adam Podlesh pinned Seattle on the 3 with 3:40 remaining in regulation. Wilson orchestrated a dramatic drive, capping it with a 14-yard pass to Tate that gave the Seahawks a 17-14 lead with 24 seconds left in regulation.

The Bears weren’t finished, though.

Cutler hit a leaping Marshall with the Seahawks’ Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas on him for a 56-yarder that put the ball on the Seattle 30. Two plays later, Gould nailed a 46-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.

But with Wilson leading the way, the Seahawks pulled out the win.

Notes: The Bears are now 64-11 under Smith when they go into the fourth quarter with a lead. … Seahawks G James Carpenter suffered a knee injury. Carroll said X-rays showed no breaks, but he was scheduled for a scan during the week. … Seattle outgained Chicago 459 yards to 358.
