PUNCH BUGGY: Volkswagen of America VP/Marketing Kevin Mayer said of the automaker possibly returning as an advertiser during Fox' Super Bowl telecast in '14, “It's a perennial consideration.

TAG, YOU'RE IT: Seahawks and MLS Sounders license plates will become available in Washington state next year, with the Seahawks plate featuring a 12 flag with a fading blue backdrop while the Sounders plate displays the team’s rave green color with a scarf held by a fan. Both plates feature the individual team logos. Net proceeds from the Seahawks plate sales will go to InvestED, a Seattle-based non-profit that partners with schools statewide to help students from low-income families (Seahawks/Sounders).
