Been a hawks fan for 31 years, and finally got to see them live and in person this past Sunday..where a season ticket holder told me about this forum...and then I got to see your post! What a game it was! Being there and experiencing the AWESOME atmosphere was incredible! Hope to get back out there more often! Thanks again for the hard work and sharing! GO HAWKS!
What a helluva first game to go to! Holy crap! My first game was a memorable game, as well, the first playoff game in Seahawks history! And yeah, being at the game is 10,000x different and much more exciting, to me anyway, than watching it on TV. The atmosphere is always electric, but when the team is on, it goes so far beyond electric.
I love when I hear feedback like this. Now you can always go check this video out and remember your trip out here in more detail than, say, a 2-minute video of regular highlights. I've heard this a few times, and it's really cool that in a roundabout way I have given you a document you can always refer to for something that gets you a LOT closer to the real feel than a 2-minute highlight reel, where you get nothing of what it is like sitting up in the stadium.
It is a different game in person. Limited replays, few stats, no going back and looking at critical plays and how they affected the outcome. And no announcers reminding you how great a player is every few seconds. This is my favorite. I put my $0.02 in, but try to keep it to a minimum (saying what down and distance before the plays so the viewer knows the situation, at least) and interject what I think might be a funny tidbit here and there. And trust me, since I've moved to seahawks.com (2010-2011 seasons are on youtube), a LOT of good stuff ends up on the cutting room floor simply because there is no way they would ever put it up on their site.
Thanks again to all!
