not about knitting ~ Melissa

Jason sent me this photo from his seat at today's championship game
'this game will force you to bare your soul'

possibly the worst and best game I've ever watched ~ windstorm last night, I haven't slept for about 40 hours, and I'm not sure I'll be able to sleep tonight
 
we watched this game slip away right up until the final ticks and through sheer guts, belief, and love of team our boys pulled off a miraculous comeback ~ a game for the ages and one I won't forget
 
who cares what the rest of the nation thinks about you ~ you are unabashedly loved by this city
 
thanks for the ride Hawks...see you in Arizona!!!!

  1. That's so great he gets to go to these games. Does he loose his voice? So exciting. Russel was so overwhelmed, such a great guy. Loved the game. Go Hawks.

    1. he did lose his voice ~ he sounds like a frog today and he's sick as a dog but he's such a happy camper and plotting & planning how to get to Arizona for the game in two weeks :)

  2. I'm not a big football fan, but had to watch such a pivotal game for our home team. If you had said at halftime that they would win, I wouldn't have believed you. Such a rollercoaster of a game. I'm a believer - this team has guts and heart and I love the Seahawks. Can't wait to watch them kick the Patriots' butt in the Super Bowl!

    1. it's contagious, isn't it? it's even better when you've been a fan for years and years ~ we had our tickets all the way back in the Ken Behring ownership days in the Kingdome so we were there in the bad times as well, which makes these moments so much better and appreciated!

  3. Wow, just Wow, still shaking my head . Boy what a rush. Don't think anyone watching will ever forget and will be saying remember when, for years... to come. You are so right this city does love their team and well deserved.
    I really didn't get to nervous until the third quarter and then ..I had about given up and all hell broke loose... What a game. I'm with Andrea , can't wait to watch them kick the Patroits' butt in the Super Bowl. GO HAWKS

  5. It was a nail-biter for sure. I wouldn't want to be the schmucks who walked out of the game early. Haaaaa! (oh ye of little faith)

    1. the people that left sure missed out ~ Jason said it was the WORST game he's ever been to and absolutely the BEST game he's ever been to ~ he'll never forget it

      the people that left only got the 'worst' end of it...

  7. Congratulations to the Seahawks! What a great game this was to watch! I so feel for you and your team. Know what it feels like to be on that roller coaster between a win and a loss. Hope you obliterate the Patriots in the Super Bowl!! Also hope your husband makes it to the game!
