Goodell to Join Mora in Rainier Climb

by: Mike Parker

On July 5, Seahawks coach Jim Mora will be joined by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and legendary mountaineer Ed Viesturs in climbing Mt. Rainier.

The trio will be climbing the 14,411-foot Cascade peak to benefit the King County branch of the United Way. Joining them on the trek will be Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke and United Way CEO John Fine.

The planned 3-day trip has been organized to raise money specifically for the United Way's "Response for Basic Needs" fund.

As BlueThru&Thru said in an earlier comment, perhaps this little trip will help Goodell to realize that South Alaska ain't so bad after all. But for Goodell's sake, I hope they don't bump into Sasquatch while on the mountain - he's probably still bitter about XL.
