Found out why Russell wears #3
Tue Mar 26, 2013 11:55 pm
  • Watching Northwest Sports tonight, they interviewed Russell and asked why he decided on the #3 and it reminded me that we had a thread a couple weeks ago where everyone debated on why he wore #3. He decided on it because he has a very faith oriented and his favorite passage is John 3:16. And as many know he wore 16 in college at NCST and Wisc so thus 3 & 16. So there ya go, for those that wanted the real reason why Russell is #3 its because it, combined with his #16 from college, correlate to his favorite Bible verse.

    Also, he has 3 dogs to boot. A doxin, a shih tzu and a great dane (which is probably bigger than him :th2thumbs: )

  • i typically am pretty bummed on overly religious players but russell approaches it with a lot of class, nothing too pushy or preachy. though i must say that im probably totally biased as i am pretty much completely obsessed with him at this point. might feel differently about him if he wasnt our QB. that being said.... GO HAWKS!

  • Another reason is because Kris Durham had #16 at the time.

    I find it perplexing that you spell shih tzu correctly but absolutely butcher dachshund.

    Hell, you could have opted out of the spelling bee contest and simply called it a wiener dog.

    A doxin... that's too much. :rofl: Thanks for the laugh.

  • That reminds me of a note I got on a workorder for an install with Directv. The note said "rokwiler doger." I can only assume it meant "Rottweiler dog owner," but it made me laugh. I wonder what a cross between a rokwiler and a doxin would be called...
    Side note...whatever you call it, the act of creating it was the rokwiler's idea...

    I will. Writing an entire post to make fun of someone else's spelling and not making a single mention to the Op. That's douchey.

    Don't get you panties in a wad, Francis.

    I was sincere when I said "Thanks for the laugh."

    In other words, I found it cute.

    Re-read my post with that in mind.

    Perhaps that will relieve some of the tension.

    No tension here. You asked why someone would call/think your post was douchey. I just explained why.

    It was incredibly douchey for the reason Calihawk stated. Your post was completely condescending and humiliating. and your explanation post was even more condescending. "Cute"? Get a grip. It was a douche post and a douche explanation of the douche post. No need.

    Tim Tebow should have worn #11 and #35.

    For those who don't get it, Google "John 11:35".

    No, it's because Russ is a triple-threat:

    1.) He runs like the wind
    2.) He passes like a surgeon
    3.) He blocks downfield fearlessly

    And your calling him out for this makes you appear "douchey" if you simply believe onanygivensunday that he had a positive intent, not a negative one you assumed. Bottom line guys; drop it. Get back to the OP.

    Wow, you guys need to lighten up. It was funny and light hearted. I chuckled myself and can laugh at my own miss spellings.

    Glad to see that Russell isn't afraid to demonstrate his beliefs and that he does so in an under stated way so as not to offend those with sensitivities towards religion.

    agree


    I cringed when Kurt Warner won the superbowl and bellowed (yes he bellowed it, he didn't just shout or yell it, it was the definition of a bellow ..its not a word I use lightly) THANK YOU JESUS!.

    when russell wins one I imagine he will say something about god or his faith but I don't forsee him bellowing it like christ floated down on a paper cloud ala a monty pythonesque montage and pooped the lombardi trophy into his fanny-pack.

    I spelled shih tzu correctly because I goggled searched it to see what the heck it looked like lol. Than I just copy and pasted the correct way to spell it. I googled the word doxin as well and it said that that was correct so I just used it. Sorry for not being an avid dog name speller.
