RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks general manager John Schneider knows there are tough decisions coming in the future with All-Pros Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas, not to mention guys like Russell Wilson and Russell Okung.

That’s why he’s trying to take time during the Seahawks’ run to the Super Bowl to enjoy the team’s accomplishments, because it’s a lot of his work that has gone into turning Seattle around just four seasons after he arrived.

Schneider said Friday that it’s tough to not always be thinking ahead because of his focus on making sure Seattle is competitive for more than one year. But the excitement around the team and the staff makes him slow down and appreciate what he has done in partnership with coach Pete Carroll.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
