Overlake's Dr. Kriseman joins NW Sports Tonight to discuss the potentially harmful effects of Adderall on NFL players

The past weekend was not a good one if you're a Seattle Seahawks fan. On Sunday, the Seahawks lost to Miami on a last second field goal and after the game it was announced that cornerbacks Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner are each facing a four game suspension for performance enhancing drugs (PED). Reports say they tested positive for the well-known prescription drug Adderall, which is used to treat Attention Defecit Disorder (ADD) and is a banned substance in the NFL. Northwest Sports Tonight caught up with Overlake Medical Center's Dr. Kriseman to learn about the potential side effects of adderall on the human body. Watch the clip below!

Space Shuttle Trainer Exhibit Grand Opening at The Museum of Flight

The Museum of Flight hosted crowds of people at its Charles Simonyi Space Gallery on Saturday, November 10 to celebrate the grand opening of the Space Shuttle Trainer exhibit. Dignitaries gathered for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially christen the long-awaited new exhibit and declare it open to the public. Those in attendance were treated to the first look inside NASA's Space Shuttle Trainer, the only one of its kind in the world and the trainer in which each of the 355 space shuttle astronauts trained.
