Do you remember the Seattle Seahawks?

Colin D. | September 18, 2010

Fuck realignment.  I miss hating the Seahawks and admiring them at the same time.

The Broncos / Seahawks rivalry within the good old AFC West (back when it included 5 teams) was at it’s hottest in the early to mid eighties when I was in my formative fan years.  My dad and his occasional pals would spit venom at the TV every time Steve Largent snagged the ball.  Somehow the Seahawks stand out for me.

They have been an NFC West team since 2002 I guess.  That’s what Wikipedia says.  It seems longer.  The Seahawks remind me of my childhood, of fires in the fireplace, of my Dad having beer, of family – pre-divorce, all of us together, hating fags from Seattle.  That’s before they were tackling boys from San Fransisco on a regular basis.
