The excitement was in the air everywhere we went this week. The Seahawk blue and green, the number 12 on cars, planes, and trains. It was on buildings, men, women, children, dogs and even a pony or two. Seahawks spirit was everywhere and it was awesome. The community spirit was infectious.
Our Seattle Seahawks are an easy team to love. Its easy to love a team when they are winning … and our team has won a lot in the last few years. But our Seahawks are easy to love because of more than just their record. They are leaders on and off the field.
When they were down in the fourth quarter of the NFC Championship game they didn’t give up, dug deep and delivered an amazing win. The Seahawks play for each other and they play for their fans, the Twelves. Seahawk players and coaches volunteer in our community during the season and wherever they call home in the off-season. Their hard work and dedication illustrate their love of the game and dedication to their profession.
I wear my Seahawks gear with pride and I have no reservations about having my kids represent the team either.
Thanks for an amazing season Seattle Seahawks. Thanks for teaching your fans, young and old, the pay-off for dedication, preparation and old fashioned hard work.
