The other day I am standing in the checkout line in my local Nor-Cal Wal-Mart wearing my Peterson stitched jersey. When a Cowboys fan walks by, he stops dead in his tracks and says to me "Man it's a shame what you did to my boys, you got a good team there in Seattle. Best of luck to you the rest of the season." I said to him "Don't worry the Cowboys are a good team too you'll be fine." In the past I would have said "Yea thats right F#@k your Cowboys." but it was the first time another teams fan gave our Hawks respect so I was nice about it.
It made me feel good to be a Seahawks fan in a foreign state, it was a first, normally opposing fans laugh at our Hawks but this total stranger made a point to say we were good instead of calling us Seachickens. I like that.
