RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Pete Carroll's favorite memory of Paul Allen is an obvious one.
February 2014. In New Jersey. On the field of MetLife Stadium raising the Vince Lombardi trophy.
DOVER, Del. (AP) — Which former Newark rock standout has gone from stomping holes in The Deer Park's stage to singing alongside Eddie Vedder and Pearl Jam?
That would be Marcus Durant, the dynamic 6-foot-7-inch former singer of Zen Guerrilla, a '90s rock act that grew out of the University of Delaware music scene.
CHICAGO (AP) — Eddie Vedder's support of the Chicago Cubs remains strong.
The Pearl Jam frontman's new 7-inch vinyl single will be given out to those who buy special tickets to the July 6 game between the Cubs and the Cincinnati Reds at Wrigley Field.
Pressed on blue and red vinyl, the record features Vedder's 2007 Cubs song "All the Way." The flip side features fan Steve Goodman's 1984 tribute "Go Cubs, Go."

Even when major an-album-a-year bands and singers are rare, the 17 since Jennifer Warnes' last record, "The Well," are far too lengthy an interval, making her return that much sweeter.
Still further back is her career peak — her tremendous 1987 collection of Leonard Cohen songs, "Famous Blue Raincoat" — and her soundtrack hits from "Norma Rae," ''An Officer and a Gentleman" and "Dirty Dancing."
NEW YORK (AP) — To many fans of Pearl Jam, the band's two-concert stand last summer at Wrigley Field in Chicago was epic. What happened a few months later at that hallowed venue was also pretty epic to baseball fans. Filmmaker Danny Clinch combined them.
In the new documentary "Let's Play Two," the concerts become the soundtrack for the Chicago Cubs ending their 108-year World Series drought, the worlds of rock and sports tied together by band frontman Eddie Vedder, a lifelong Cubs fan.

NEW YORK (AP) — Dad's great and all, but if you really want to get singer Lilly Hiatt excited, put her onstage next to Eddie Vedder.
Meeting the Pearl Jam lead singer is a bucket list item for the 33-year-old daughter of songwriter John Hiatt, and a reminder that even with the strong musical bloodlines, she's got her own style and influences.
NEW YORK (AP) — The Latest on inductions to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (all times local):
As Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder thanked his wife during his speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, one male fan from a seat up high screamed, "I love you Eddie!"
"Shoot, honey, I thought you were sitting down in the front," Vedder said to laughs.
His wife, Jill, was teary-eyed in the audience at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn as fans continued to cheer.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Justin Timberlake will headline the next Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival and he's lured some big names to join him, including Eddie Vedder, Ryan Adams, The Avett Brothers, Mavis Staples and Gary Clark Jr.
The two-day annual festival debuted in 2015 on a horse farm in Franklin, Tennessee, and was co-founded by Kevin Griffin of the band Better Than Ezra. Timberlake is a partner and producer who will make his debut on its stage this fall.
MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Eddie Vedder walks through the door, guitar in his right hand, folder in left, a backward Chicago Cubs batting helmet on his head.
He places the folder on the desk, swings the guitar around and begins his pitch to Cubs players Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo. The Bryzzo Souvenir Company needs a jingle, so the Pearl Jam frontman starts playing a punk rock-esque song that ends with: "That ball was Bryzzo-ed!"
Bryant and Rizzo rise, high-five and shout: "Yes! That's it!"
CLEVELAND (AP) — Bill Murray has come to the rescue of a fellow Chicago Cubs fan by providing a ticket to Game 6 of the World Series.
Karen Michel tells MLB.com she was hoping there might be an extra ticket Tuesday at the Cleveland box office. After being told the game was sold out, she spotted Murray walking by and decided to follow him.
CHICAGO (AP) — David Ross isn't done just yet. Same for Jon Lester and the rest of the Chicago Cubs.
Ross played a starring role as the Cubs stayed alive in the World Series, topping the Indians 3-2 in Game 5 on Sunday. The 39-year-old catcher, who plans to retire after the season, had a superb night behind the plate and delivered a clutch sacrifice fly that helped Chicago to its first Series win at Wrigley Field in 71 years.
CHICAGO (AP) — The Chicago Cubs are trying to do something that hasn't happened in the lifetime of anyone born in the last 108 years: win a World Series.
So naturally, the chance to be part of that history has prompted people who live in Chicago, once lived in Chicago or just rooted for the Cubs from miles away to descend on Wrigley Field or tune in on television.
NEW YORK (AP) — The night Mandy Gonzalez made her triumphant debut in "Hamilton" on Broadway, there was a special guest in the audience cheering her on: a Jedi Master, in fact.
