  • Are you the "designated Seahawk fan" at your office? You know what I mean ... Seahawks lose and you get six kinds of grief about it. Seahawks win and everyone's pretty quiet about it.

    Hey, I don't play the game, I just root for them. If I could catch the damn ball I would be out there.

  • Yes, I am that guy. I am just glad we don't have a 49er guy here.

    Lots of Cowboys, Redskins, Steelers. We have a random colts guy and a ran a random Dolphins guy, so I am sure they feel the same way I do.

  • Yup...I am the ONLY Seahawks fan where I work. There is one REAL Niner fan, one Dolphin fan, One Pats fan and the rest are bandwagon Niner fans.

    Funny, the Niner fan and I talk football a lot. He's the one guy who is into the game as much as I am, but this week, after their loss (eerily similar to this board) I didn't hear a word from him. I think if he even attempts to talk about the game today I might have to hurt him :) I'm good with letting it settle til Monday at least

    You obviously don't need to be able to catch to be on this team.

    I am definitely the Seahawks guy in my office. Fortunately, after a loss everyone pretty much leaves me alone. After a win, everyone is talkin' it up.

  • Living in WI I'm basically the only Seahawks fan everywhere I go, but the office is the worst. Probably because I wear Seahawks gear like 2-3 days a week. Luckily nobody here cared enough to stay up and watch the game so I'm not taking too much heat.

  • I live in St. Louis, where nobody cares about pro football, so I haven't heard anything.

    As usual, all the talk has been about baseball.

    This is the first time you've ever been funny, sugarpants. Very true and funny. I've been that guy since elementary school.

  • I work from home so I don't get grief.

    I am not looking forward to tonight though. I have a gig tonight and the lead singers husband is a 9'ers fan. The drummer is also a Seahawks fan and they made a bet on this game. I am sure we will hear about the money he won during every break tonight.
    Harbaugh is a lunatic and he'll either die on the sideline while trying to challenge the coin toss, or get into a filthy divorce from the 49ers that will end up with him getting $27 million a year from Michigan to fist fight the entire state of Ohio.

    This pretty well sums it up, except for me it is school not the office.

  • I had someone cover me for the duration of the game, so I had to go back right after. I got crap ALL night about it.. Someone even put up fliers all around my area while I was at one of my breaks haha. Worst part is that my supervisor is a huge 9ers' fan.. So I'm sure that I will hear about it Monday. I told him that I was going to decorate his desk with Seahawks decor after we beat them in their house.. Oops.

  • I'm a substitute teacher. Taught elementary school PE today and played a version of dodge ball with the 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. A 5th grader showed up in a 49ers t'shirt, needless to say he was targeted a few times by the teacher.

    Ha! That's funny you guys. I'm an elementary school teacher as well. I'm always messing with the kids about their favorite football teams. I always joke with them and tell them if they wear a Stealers jersey to school, they get an "F" for the day. On Fridays, I always wear a Seahawks jersey. Most of the kids are Stealers fans because of their parents. I live kind of close to Pittsburgh so it's hard enough dealing with the fans, now I have to deal with the kids too, lol. I have even gotten some of them to ask their dads about the Super Bowl debacle. Some of them have came back and said their parents actually thought Seattle got cheated, lol. Pretty honest people around here actually.

  • This is off-topic but I have been thinking of moving back to the Northwest. I have family in Scio, Oregon and have been thinking of applying for teaching positions there. Do any of you know the area and how much they pay for permanent positions or subs? How's the job market for teachers there? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I was going to start a thread about it (I still will probably), but was just wondering since I saw these posts.
