What's funny about the movie is that the "raptors" are actually not velociraptors. They are deinonychus--a much smaller, feathery dinosaur. This was supposedly due to a labeling error in a dinosaur book. They had no choice but to run with their error after it was discovered.
I was more curious to see where the Flyers and Red Wings would come into play.
As for the movie, I'm guessing you're referring to Jurassic Park. Those aren't Deinonychus either, which are actually larger than velociraptors, but nowhere near that large. The ones in the movie are more like Utahraptors in size.
(Except for the Pelicans. Ain't nobody got Pelicans.)
Marshawn Lynch, for the 2015 seaons, was 1-of-5 running the ball from the 1-yard line. There was no guarantee he was going to score, especially with the Patriots going jumbo down on the goal line.
Carroll's decision to throw on that down allowed the Seahawks 1 extra play, given their timeout situation. From a clock management stand point, throwing the ball was the right call. A better play may have been a fade to the corner of the end zone, where either only the WR can get it, or it goes out of bounds.
But that play ended up in an interception not because it was such a risky play, but because Malcom Butler was so well coached. Even with him making the correct read and breaking on the ball, if Wilson throws that ball lower and to the WR's back hip, no problem. It was simply an amazing play by a VERY well-coached rookie.

The team's original owner commanded an infantry division called the Black Hawks that fought in the first World War. The military unit is what the team is named after.
That unit was named after Black Hawk, a Sauk war chief, who fought alongside the British in The War of 1812 and later against white settlers in what's now Illinois and Wisconsin. That was called Black Hawk's War. You've gotta be pretty formidable to have a war named after you.
He was named after a bird though.
Wouldn't it be fun if a team was called Charlotte Tits. It would be the greatest team of South Carolina
