How's everyone doing on this glorious Saturday morning?! Great day to be a Seahawk fan isn't it?
I've been lurking around these boards (living in the shadows and being an all around ninja) for about 2 years now. I started my internet forum posting career on youtube, then made the jump to espn.com (bantering back and forth in defense of the hawks with random idiots), and now I feel like I'm ready to take off the training wheels (ala Russell Wilson) step into the big-leagues and post here! I grew up in the Seattle area and I've been die hard hawks fan my whole life.
I like to think that I'm pretty even-keeled when it comes to talking about the hawks. I think this is a symptom of the high hopes I've entered every season with and the heartbreak I've felt and the crap I've taken from rival fans when things haven't gone the way I had hoped at season's end. That being said, I'm beyond proud of the team PC & JS have assembled and my hopes and expectations are at an all-time high! This has to be the greatest time to be a Seahawk fan in franchise history - I mean they've been on ESPN / NFL Network more in the last 2 months than they had in the last 2 years, it's bizarre!
Why am I here?
Very simply put, I want to learn as much about what's going on with the hawks as possible. There's a wealth of knowledge on these boards (more than I've seen in other forums, e.g. theseattletimes.com) and I want to take advantage of it! I've come to respect many of you and I hope to gain insight from you so I can go out into the real world and pass this knowledge off as though it were my own!
I also really appreciate the way some of you can make 9'ers fans look retarded on their own forums. I live in Idaho and when I go out to the bar and talk football, I quickly discover that most people don't know or care about the hawks or the NFL in general (or they say they're Seahawk fans and I quickly discover they aren't but go along with it anyway, lol). I'm a Seahawk junky and I need my fix!
Anyway, sorry for such a lengthy post but I just wanted to give the two people who are still reading this a rundown on the new guy. lol..
