Leif Heide has never lived in Seattle, but he's been a tried and true Seahawk fan since 1976, when he was 8 years old. He took on a second job loading airplanes just to get the free flights so he could jet-set to Seahawk games around the country.

I'm fascinated with all the different people, families and lives that have been lived inside every apartment building and home. How many times did someone fall in love in my apartment unit, how many people died, what sort of strange, disgusting, illegal, beautiful, creative and unique things have taken place in that single space? Here we take a look at who is living in The Monarch Apartments in Seattle's University District. And a local historian will tell you how to look up your own house's history.

A Seattle company called X2 Biosystems has developed a chip that athletes can wear behind their ears, so clinicians can track head trauma in real-time during a game. So far the NFL and many NCAA schools are using the device, and the founders hope that every high school in America starts tracking head trauma and concussions by the end of 2014.

I found it shocking: a former NFL player, who only just quit in November 2013, has no interest in watching football. As someone with no interest in sports, I often find myself alone on game days and it turns out John is in the same exact boat.

It's January, which means many people are hopping on fad diets that they'll promptly hop off of by the end of the month. The trendiest diet is Paleo, a non-processed menu suited for a caveman. Rachel Belle chatted with a doctor who says the Paleo diet will make just about anyone healthier.

A little more than a year ago, an international controversy erupted when a Maple Valley teenager was seen punching a Giant Pacific Octopus he'd hunted on Alki Beach's Cove 2. One year later, Dylan Mayer talks about why people would rather send him death threats than hunt for their own sustainable meat. And the chef/owner of Hitchcock, on Bainbridge Island, who serves Giant Pacific Octopus, says Dylan's misstep has now trickled down to his restaurant.
