What the Seahawks survey says about You! Seaside Joe 1631
I think you are right: JSN is fucking special and Bobo is a diamond in the rough
For me, living in Seattle for 26 years, the tipping point for becoming a fan was Marshawn. I followed my hometown Giants and Jets but stopped following NFL seriously for 45 years until he emerged as a Hawk. I longed for the rebirth of a Jim Brown figure. MoneyLynch more than sufficed. Chris Carson locked me in.
I was just one stadium away from five. I’ve seen the Seahawks in Foxboro, Jack Murphy in San Diego 3 times, the Coliseum in LA, and twice in Seattle. We plan on going to see them against the Rams at Sofi this year.
Seaside Jay Joe knows her guy! ❤️
I went to one game their first season in the Kingdome and had to watch it on the little tv screens throughout the 3rd level since the field was so hard to see! Watched many games on TV for a couple seasons then stopped until Field Gulls had writers who were informative and one really funny guy I learned everything I now know about the game from!
The Seahawks don’t live in Seattle.
Was Tough for me growing up a Raiders fan. But living in the local area since 61 I had to back the Home team! So I did every game except when they played the Raiders. But that went away after just a few seasons and the Hawks became the Always Home favorite team!
I've been a fan since the beginning, I was 11 when the hawks came into existence. I have to admit there were some trying time - the 24-0 loss to the LA Rams where the Hawks amassed negative yards on offense and pretty much all the nineties (how bad did Ken Behring suck?) but I figure since I stuck with them through those periods I'll always be a fan.
I love playing fantasy football so it's been really fun tying my fandom of the Seahawks with acquiring Seahawk players for my squads and also winning quite often as well. One season I had 8 Hawks on my roster of 14... 2nd place that year.
I went to a game in AZ in 2009 and had a cardinals fan burn cigarette holes in my jersey and other Seahawks fans, stadium sucked too.
I’d love to see a game at Mile High (I had a good experience with their fans at the season opener last year). other stadiums I’d like to visit are Lambeau (legendary), Buffalo (love the bulls mafia), Vegas (Vegas baby), KC (great fans and food/tailgating).
What about y’all?!
Just say Jack Patera, Jim Zorn, Effren Herrera, Weaver. The teams under Patera were underdogs and they would gamble almost anytime. Dad and I would sit watch them on his first color TV he bought in 1976! May the 12s be with you and Go Seahawks!
I’ve unfortunately seen more Seahawks games in DC than anywhere else, and can confirm - FedEx is the worst stadium (I imagine in the entire league - it was soulless when it was new, and it’s only gotten worse)
I gotta say...I loved reading through the comments in the Longest Yard piece.
I does kind of feel like a huuuuge extended family now.
I follow butt-kickers intent on winning. Being lousy at taking commands made me a lousy employee, so I had to make my own way. In my home cowtown, you either rooted for the Raiders or got beat up. (running cow herds sets that) Then the Raiders ran away to LA, forcing us to root for the cross-bay Sissies. Luckily they got a former boxer for a coach and Montana came along. When they crapped on him and began putting tutu's on QBs, I left watching until Pete found Wilson and the LOB and it's been a blast ever since. I watch to Win. Making your own way demands this 24/7. It's an attitude thing which creates answers when all seems lost. A construction crew shines when production soars. Watching guy's eyes gleam, when they do more than they thought possible, is a reward in itself. Pete Carroll epitomizes this. Watching him set new standards in Coaching warms fires me up. Watching him throw passes and sprinting has me out doing the same now. If he can, I can. Hell, he's a year older...
It took me six minutes to get to the end of this article.
One minute to read it, after five minutes laughing at the Ahlers clip some more.
We all have at least one thing in common: is that enough to make us family?
(Now, get up everybody and dance...)
