It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally making it back to beautiful Seattle next week for the Jets/Seahawks game.
Over the years my friends and I have seen a few Jets/Seahawks games at the Meadowlands. They're good people and humble fans, sort of like myself without all the post traumatic stress from Super Bowl XL, who have had their few ups and many downs much like Seahawks fans. Finally, it's my turn to take these dudes out west and show them what a REAL football gameday experience is like at the CLink. As you can probably imagine I'm extremely excited.
It's also coming at the perfect time after Hurricane Sandy. I could use the vacation haha. Things are getting crazy here in NYC, 3 hour lines at gas stations, people now buying gas and trying to sell it for quadruple the price, the Lower East Side looks like a scene from I Am Legend, and Breezy Point here in Queens looks like a warzone. It's definitely time to escape the insanity and what a better place than my home away from home, Washington State. Despite being born and raised in NYC, I've always considered Seattle more of a home for me. It's part of the reason I traveled to Pullman to attempt to graduate from WSU. Although it didn't work out for me in the end, there's a connection I feel to this area that's unreal. This will be my first time back in the great state of Washington in 4 or 5 years, so I'm pumped!
Tickets for the game on Stubhub are lookin pretty expensive at the moment. Does anyone know if they have a tendancy of dropping a little during the leadup to the game for Seahawks games? Sometimes that's the case with games here at the Meadowlands, if you wait it out you can end up with some pretty decent seats for a fair price. Anyone on here got any tickets that they plan on selling?
I'm not looking past the Vikings game this Sunday by any means! That's a huge game in it's own right. However, I definitely am ready to go and will be losing my voice getting all crazy cheering on the Hawks next weekend. So it is written, so it shall be done!
