Howzit .Net . I wanted to introduce myself. I have lurked here for a while and finally got around to creating an account.
A little history. In moved to the Seattle area 5 years ago from Hawaii. Which is something that always seems to befuddle people. Well, my wife and I both spent our entire lives there. And it was a great place to grow up. I spent the first 37 years of my life in pursuit of surf, girls and pakalolo. It was a great 37 years. :D
Then I got married. And had kids. We now live in Bellevue so that my kids could get a good education and so my wife could have a better job. ( I am a stay at home Dad) One of my best friends gave me a parting bit of advice and that was, 'If you want to have any friends up there you better get into football'. The reason he told me that is because up till that point I hated football. I mocked my football loving friends. 'Why do you let yourself get twisted into knots about a team 5000 miles away in a city you've never even visited?' If you live in Hawaii you spend all your free time in the ocean. There's a dozen different ways to have the time of your life in the ocean. Super Bowl Sunday was always a great day to go surfing because there was no one out.
Anyways, here I am in the beautiful Northwest and I love living here. My friend Downtown Joe took me to my first NFL game at the Clink and I was hooked. It reminded me of big concerts thatI had gone to when I was younger. Just an awesome feeling of unity and shared purpose and excitement....you guys know what I mean.
I feel very fortunate to have become aware when I did. What an exciting time for football here in Seattle. It must really be something for you old time fans. I'm a convert. I tape all the games and watch them multiple times. I go to as many games as I can. I got my Seahawks gear that I wear with pride. ( My wife got me the most unreal Seahawks coat for Christmas last year). And the best part? My friend who gave me the advice is a San Diego fan and I mock him unmercifully.
I will be going to the game Sunday night sitting in section 130 with my 13 year old daughter who 'Loves football but doesn't understand it' screaming our heads off.
Also, I would like to say thanks to the .Net family for all the great football stuff i have learned here.

GO HAWKS!!

Hey braddah, like myself, you're living the best of both worlds. I've been in the islands for the past 30 years and reading your passions, we've probably bumped into each other at one point or another, lol. As you know, the 5-0 is polluted by SF fans. You will be missed. ;)

BLITZFAN: Your wife knows her stuff, her invitation is even spelled correctly. E Komo Mai means welcome, Ohana means family. = welcome to the family. She a local girl?

Welcome!

Hop on over to 133 to meet a couple of us .netters in person. I'm in 133 Row T, seats 15 and 16. I'll be with my daughter (LOVES football)
that day too. I can also point you in the direction of LudwigsDrummer, just a few rows back.

I'm also heading into the stadium early to hang out over the tunnel and try and get Sherman to sign my daughter's jersey. If you
see a guy waving a #25 jersey around, just call out "Garth!".

She will tell you to pronounce every vowel. In doing so, you will do well. ;) MANY locals go back and forth from here to the NW / Alaska. Oh, and Vegas, LOL. What island is she from (if you don't mind me asking)?

Thanks for the welcome everybody. There are definetly a lot of Hawaii connections up here. Max Unger for one. Blitz...tell your wife ai mahalo. Bart it's funny...every time we get a care package from my wifes family it always has at least 4 cans of Spam in it. We are ready for the apocalypse as far as canned meat goes. Riley, I will look for you. You gave me a good idea about getting to the tunnel. I want to takea lot of pictures Sunday. I have been waiting for this game for months. It has more of the feeling of Christmas than Christmas does.
Anyway, thanks again everyone.
GO HAWKS!!

No disrespect to the other women of the world, but Oahu, without question, has the most beautiful women on the planet. The fact you found one willing to leave the friendly confines of Ala Moana, suggests she is beautiful both inside and out.

Ever stroll Kahala mall on a Saturday? OMG. My wife is in my avatar. Her kicks keep me from straying... too far. ;)

HawkWow - I totally agree! The funny thing though... I had been to Pearl many times in the navy, but I didn't meet her there. I met her here in Tacoma. I am very lucky she chose to leave the 'aina behind to come find me.

The aina no ka oi, but in the near future, my wife and I will be living our "off seasons" in Thailand. Probably 3-4 months of the year. We have been offered positions with Fairtex over there and that should prove to be interesting (if not painful).

Your Mrs is likely missing the weather of her homeland this time of year, no? I'm missing the cold. X-mas has never felt like X-mas here in the islands to me. Anyway, happy holidays to you both!
