Go Hawks!

I've been a hawks fan since Steve Raible actually played for them. I went to the 06 championship and had a blast (and a world-class headache from yelling). Honestly I think a lot of our fans now are barely a cut above medium security at Walla Walla. Nothing wrong with razzing the other team's fans but things have gone downhill big time at the Clink the last few years. I'm still more of a Broncos hater than the Niners but I can still imagine the ugliness that will be out this weekend. The best seat this Sunday will be the big screen with my kids not learning how grown people can make asses of themselves.

Here's some trivia - what was Steve Largent's greatest play? It wasn't a catch...

Steve's hit on Denvers Harden. Hawks fan since 76'.

Yep....

But then I saw google puts it at the top of a "Steve Largent greatest play" search so it sort of takes the drama out of it.


My first hawks memory was Efren Herrera catching the td from Jim Zorn as my dad screamed at the tv. They weren't good but Patera made them fun to watch.

Anyway... Close this weekend but not that close. Hawks win 21-10. Kapaernick's zone read hasn't worked yet up here.

That was a great game and became the new pinnacle of live football for me. The people at the game make the experience more intense

Where we sit in Section 118 , I have not noticed this at all. It is all Season ticket holders (much like the whole stadium) and while there is some good natured teasing and sign holding (the opposing teams enters the field by our seats) I have always found the fans to be courteous and just regular folks.

I give a lot of my tickets to clients and the two comments I get back are:

1) everyone is so nice and polite around your seats, and

2) why do they call them seats when no one sits down the whole game?

People make asses of themselves every day, professional sports is just a convenient outlet for herd mentality to have a chance to take over.There are so many security people around and an overabundance of police stationed everywhere that any trouble is over before it starts.

Sounds like a good section. You're quite a bit lower than the seats my cousin has. He's in lower 310. Once you get to those far reaches the riffraff start to congregate. I know it's hit or miss but one dick can really ruin it.

The real drama is on and around the Sounder train if you ride it. No security there

This entire week, I've been listening to KNBR radio (49er Sport radio station) & the national pundits. Seems now everyone has given up on the Hawks. 5 out of 6 areas they are giving the 9er's an advantage. Are they really that much better of a team right now?

ESPN shows are turning too. Most are picking the 49ers and I cant blame them. Niners are the hottest team in the NFL right now. Seattles defense is going to have to play lights out for them to win.

Mid-game adjustment to control Kaepernick's running sure paid off.

Damn lucky to win that one. Hope Manning doesn't carve us up.

Go Hawks

Seattle Seahawks - 2013 NFC conference champions. I like the way that sounds.

Sure wish Sherman would find some class though.

They used to be in Sacramento. Or was it Oklahoma City.
