Seth and Kat’s 4 Things You Need To Know-August 4th

Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark was kicked out of practice Thursday for punching right tackle Germain Ifedi, an incident that led to a brief brawl between offensive and defensive players and drew scorn from coach Pete Carroll.Ifedi wasn’t wearing a helmet, and Clark landed a punch to his face, knocking him to the ground and leading to the scrum of pushing, shoving and grabbing of the all-out melee. The two sides were eventually separated by coaches, but Ifedi remained on the ground for several minutes. “I’m disappointed we had a couple guys get after it today,” Carroll said. “There is no room for fighting in football. It is not part of this game, not supposed to be part of this game. And we frown upon that very heavily, so real disappointed that that happened today. We have to learn and get better and be right.” Carroll said Ifedi was OK but didn’t return back to practice after the fight. (Read more from ESPN)

ESPN is marking August 8–a.k.a. “8/8”–with a programming stunt straight out of the Dodgeball playbook. Fans of that 2004 comedy might remember that one of the movie’s funniest running jokes was a fake ESPN channel called ESPN8–a.k.a. “The Ocho”–that broadcast sports coverage for sports that are “almost a sport,” like dodgeball. On Tuesday, the real-life network ESPNU, which normally shows college athletics, will actually morph into ESPN8 for one day only. “The Ocho” will air such allegedly real “sporting” events as “Kabbadi” (huh?), “Moxie Games” (what’s that?) and “Championship of Bags” (uh…). And yes, “The Ocho” will also be showing “Sky Zone Ultimate Trampoline Dodgeball” at 4 a.m. (Read more from SB Nation)
