As you may have guessed by now I’m an old veteran when it comes to Seattle sports and my best memories of the Hawks date back to the Dave Krieg/Steve Largent era. However I did come back into the fold in 2005 and not only attended the NFC Championship game here against Carolina, but also went to the Super Bowl in Detroit. It has taken me nearly this long to get over the way that game was stolen from us, but I’m breaking-out my Hawks gear and may even grab a ticket for the Saints game!
While I’m sure most of the smarmy types in the local media and blogosphere will try to hedge their bets with all sorts of talk about not really expecting to win etc. I am picking the Hawks to win, and yes they have a chance. You see on any given Sunday any NFL team can get hot like the underdog SF Giants did in the Baseball playoffs last year, much to the chagrin of all the brilliant/arrogant pundits in the mainstream media.
So I am going to pick the Seahawks by 10 over the New Orleans Saints this Saturday right here at QWEST Field baby! Yes you heard it right I think we are going to win as sort of pay-back for the Super Bowl that was stolen from us 5 years ago. Now since most of you don’t bother to comment I’m not to worried about making this prediction and facing an onslaught of negative energy, but I would like to hear what you think out there on this cold crisp night one way or the other.
By the way is Pete Carroll the coach you always wanted to have growing up or what! I love the guy, and also think the whole 12th man thing combined with either of our quarterbacks will be too much for the over-confident boys from down on the bayou….http://jeffsmariners.com
