  • My grandfather, the man who raised me, has just lost his fight with his fourth cancer.

    He got me into football when I was five, and created a die hard 12th man in the process.

    Even though he stopped watching after 2005(for his health he said), he has always followed from the fringes.

    I am grateful for everything I learned from him, and I will miss him.

    RIP Richard Hodge

  • First, my condolences and sympathies for you and your family. Second, this is why the whole "we can wait till next year" argument doesn't fly. I'm sorry your dad didn't get to see them win the whole enchilada.

    A significant reason to cheer for a Haws victory this Sunday.

    I'm sorry to hear about your grandfather. I hope he was at peace in his final moments here.
    Enjoy the game as best you can.
    49ers webzone: Win or lose, i hope you injure Sherman. Like a serious career ending injury. I don't want him to get paid.

  • I'm sorry for your loss. Here's to a win Sunday for your granddad.

    My grandfather took me on a tour of the Kingdome when it opened in 1976, and to a few Mariner's games back in the day. Great memories.

  • My grandfather stepped in the void my dad left (he was never around in my life) and he died when I was ten years old. He too is why I am a Seahawks fan today. When he died, it was like I lost a part of myself. I know how you feel, and it is painful beyond words. Just know there are people here for you if you need them for love and support. My condolences for your loss, man.

  • I can just imagine your grandfather having a conversation with the big man upstairs along the lines of....."Isn't it time the Hawks made it back to the Super Bowl?"

    Focus on the good memories, and know that he's in a better place.

  • Sorry to hear of your loss. I lost my Gramps this time last year. He was to me what yours was to you. I am very sorry niether man saw the Hawks (officially) win it all.

    Only recently have I stopped thinking about giving him a call. That's the really tough part. Stay busy my friend. It helps.
