It's a dream to nearly all of us I imagine. To follow the Seahawks for an entire season. Home and Away. I had big plans years ago. Had the title of the book in mind. Themes identified. A rough outline set to paper. Funds set aside. Youth on my side. Then, abruptly, all that was cast aside in favor of a sultry U of Chicago temptress with a great rack, a PhD in Anthropology (present-day Mayans) bipolar disorder and an ecstasy/narcotic habit that knew no bounds save those imposed by judges and doctors.
Now. 10? 12? Years removed from that episode and on the eve of a season of unprecedented promise, I think of some guy we met this past December. In Toronto. A lone Seahawks fan three rows behind Tech, MysterMatt and I. He was there, like us, to attend and enjoy and chronicle the Seahawks victory over the Buffalo Bills. We spoke briefly during the game and it turns out he had been traveling 'with' the team all year long. Had attended every single game home and away, usually alone. Instant Seahawks royalty in my eyes. I'm guessing he was in his early thirties and I believe he said he held a job with Microsoft. We had intended to all celebrate the victory together post-game and learn more about his adventures but in the euphoria (and stupor) that followed the game those intentions were waylaid. And we lost touch.
I told him about .NET (always surprised how many Seahawks fans don't know about this place!)..
So I am curious if he or anyone else here has some grand plans and the means to carry it out this year??
I cannot imagine a more thrilling adventure-and I've had a few-than to follow the Seahawks game after game during this Championship Season.
