My readers have spoken and they overwhelming voted that I should cheer for the Seattle Seahwaks in Super Bowl XL. So I am officially announcing my support for the Great Northwest's very own Seattle Seahawks. As a lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, I take great pride in the fact that our beloved Seahawks are playing in the Super Bowl.
After thinking things through, how could I not cheer for the Hawks. I'm only 283 miles from Seattle, so this has to be my team! I've always had great respect for this first class organization. From their owner Paul Allen all the way down to the Beer guys at Qwest field this Oragnization is first class. Growing up in Seahawk country I have fond childhood memories of NFL greats like Jim Zorn, Curt Warner, Dave Kreig, Steve Largent, Kenny Easley, Cortez Kennedy, Rufus Porter and my favorite Hawk of them all Brian Bosworth.
If the Seahawks win next Sunday, which I believe they will, it will great moment for football fans throughout the Great Northwest. The Seahawks are not just Seattle's team they belong to all of us in the Great Northwest. From Southern Oregon to the Canadian border and east into Idaho, Montana and Wyoming this is Seahawks country. Go Seahawks, beat the Steelers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
