Heh. just saw this thread. Here you go:
Reside: Los Angeles. Parents still live in Kent in the house I grew up in since I was 3
So me and my wife and kids make it back for visits once or twice a year.
Occupation: Computer Engineer
Favorite All-Time Seahawk: Tough question... have to say Steve Largent. Consistent bright light for the Seahawks through thick and thin. A more out of the box choice: Efren Herrera ..not sure why
Favorite Current Seahawk: Tough question again. Have to say it flip-flops between Russell Wilson and ET3
Places Other Than Seahawks Stadium Where I've Seen Hawks Play: Only seen them play at the Kingdome. Never been to CLink
Other Stadiums I've Been To: No other statiums
Favorite Seahawk Memory: Tie between Largent's hit on Harden and the Efren Herrera touchdown. And of course winning the Super Bowl
Saddest Seahawk Memory: Curt Warner injury. And of course losing the Super Bowl

Best Seahawk Souvenir: Very first autograph and jersey. Here's the story:
Memory is super fuzzy, but I think this is how it went down
We were at the Bon in Southcenter (could have been Fredricks) and waiting for mom to do shopping and we see this huge big black guy sitting at a table. No one is there so he's just sitting there looking mad or something. We thought he was selling Seahawks merchandise so we go and look and it's KENNY EASLEY!!
Kenny was doing an autograph session. Talk about poor marketing, there was NO LINE. In fact I think they had stationed him in the women's clothing section or something because I do remember sitting with my brother while my mom was looking around. Yeah poor marketing.
He looked pissed too (Maybe he always did?) but we thought he was pissed there was no line. We had no idea what he was doing there and asked him and he said he was signing autographs. And there was a number of photos of him on regular paper, not glossies or any high quality paper. Just regular copy paper.
So we each got one and then went to sit back down while our mom shopped. A few minutes pass, no one still getting autographs, I think he kinda sensed my brother and I were in awe of him and kinda staring at him. I believe at some point we just went back up and got another one for other friends. Then sat back down.
I think we would have talked to him and asked him questions being the fanboys we were but he was just downright scary. Shades. Not smiling. Nice suit showing off his big muscles and all.
I'm pretty sure when our mom came back we convinced her to let us get a Kenny Easley jersey, so this was also our first football jersey ever. Because I do remember the one and only Seahawks jersey my brother and I had growing up was an Easley jersey
Memory super fuzzy, but I think that's about right
