A friend of mine who had been a constant source of:
A) Seahawks hate (Wilson is terrible, even saying that Tannehill was better at certain parts of the season)
B) Denver was the best team in the NFL in 5 years, Super Bowl, etc. ad nauseam.
He deleted his facebook account the other day and hasn't responded to any texts or calls.
Usually when the season is over for me, it's without much worry about the post season. If we made it to the NFC championship I would perk up quite a bit. I'm always hyped for every game, but not like this year and the 2005 year. Hell, even 2010. This year was totally different. I really thought the Seahawks were about to continue doing the most amazing things we've seen.
Once it was all over, I went home from Scooter's Pub in Las Vegas (plug) and lay in bed all day. I barely ate anything. After that day though, I was taken by an overwhelming sense of optimism like I've never had before. It didn't even just stop with football, my workouts have gotten better amongst other things! The fans greeting them at the airport pretty much did it for me. Things like that, the RRR and the amount of appreciation shown to the 12th man this year really solidified my feeling that we are a part of the team, hell we have our own jersey. It's been a great ride.
