I know what you mean that it makes your proud along with the pain.
I went to Monroe High School, and we have had a consistently bad football team for years. However, it was known far and wide that we had the craziest, most raucous fans in WESCO, and much of Washington. We went completely defeated my senior year, but I'll be damned if we weren't a mini 12th man every single Friday.
We lost to the Snohomish Panthers for 98 years in a row, but during my junior year we beat them at their full strength. That was our superbowl (even though we only had a few wins that year), and our whole school rushed the field.
Blow that up times a million and you have Seahawks football. Now we're a very good team and the ultimate prize will come soon enough, but the passion and true grit of all the players and all the 12s is something to be proud of.
They can keep knocking us down,
We always get up.
