Saving for a Rainy Season: Seahawks Piggy Bank

  The Seahawks piggy bank that HomeStreet Bank is giving away free to Seahawks ticket holders is coming at just the right time. The 12th Man has been saving some extra mojo since the beginning of the season for a rainy day (which is almost every day between November and May). It’s been do-or-die time in recent weeks […]

Perfect Thanksgiving: Family & Friends, Great Food, and a Seahawks Domination!

  It was quite a Thanksgiving Day this year. We went to a neighbor’s house for a Thanksgiving feast that did not disappoint in many ways–great company, great food, and great outcomes. Spending Thanksgiving with 20 family members and friends was just about right. Just enough people to get that homey feeling of a large family gathering but […]

Weed Bowl More Likely than Super Bowl for Seahawks This Season?

  After the Seahawks romp over the Green Bay Packers in the opening game of the 2014 NFL season, the 12th Man was expecting another run to the Super Bowl in 2015. Perhaps Seattleites should expect to play Denver again in the “Weed Bowl” rather than the Super Bowl this year? Since the dominating performance […]

Celebrating at the Seahawks Super Bowl Parade with 700,000 Other Fans

I pulled my kids out of school a little early today to attend the very first Seahawks Super Bowl victory parade in downtown Seattle. As I drove, I sensed that there would be a huge crowd today when, many miles away from our destination,  we started seeing fans walking downtown. Needless to say, traffic was […]

Orange Crushed! Seahawks Dominate Broncos

What a dominating performance by the Seahawks last night in crushing the big Orange (aka the best offense in NFL history)! In contrast to the earlier Seahawks playoff games this season, there was never a doubt about the outcome of the game after the first few minutes. Even though I was somewhat confident of a […]

The 12th Man: Restless in Seattle

The 12th Man (and Woman) has totally taken over the Seattle area since the Seahawks won a heart-stopping battle against the 49ers a week and a half ago in the NFC Championships. You see Seahawks gear, flags, signs, and colors everywhere you go. In fact, I saw a small airplane dragging a 12th man flag […]

"Beast Quake II" at Saints - Seahawks Game

It was quite an experience Saturday as the Seahawks beat down the Saints in a NFC divisional game at CenturyLink Field.  The Seahawks were leading comfortably most of the game but, as the Saints suddenly closed the margin in the 4th quarter, fans around me became a little anxious. However, that anxiety was quickly relived […]
