Candid camera: Joe Pawelek

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Joe Pawelek showed up at the grocery store to receive a turkey.

Turns out the turkey was him, the rookie linebacker on the receiving end of the annual prank in which Seahawk rookies are given a certificate instructing them to go to the grocery store for a free turkey.

Just one problem. There's no free turkey waiting for them.

This year's prank included the twist. There was a hidden camera so during one of the team's meetings this week, they showed footage of Pawelek waiting for the turkey that never came.

After practice on Wednesday, coach Pete Carroll summoned out a frozen bird.

"Get this guy a turkey," the coach said.

The bird was in Pawelek's locker on Thursday. He'd already bought the bird to cook up.

Update at 2:57 p.m., 11.26.2010: Joe Pawelek's name was misspelled in the initial entry of the blog.
