I'd put him right down there with Drew Carey.
I would have liked to see John Scheider raise it today. He deserves some public love.
Hell, seeing somebody dressed up as this Ziggy would have got me more fired up:

Slightly off topic .. if the Cardinals somehow won today .. I wonder who would have raised the flag in the playoff game? I was thinking maybe Brian Hoyer if he pulled off the magical upset

It'd be cool to have George Karl, Nate McMillan, Lenny Wilkens, or even someone like Lou Piniella do the honor for that matter. It's even better that Sigi Schmid is a CURRENT coach of a GOOD Seattle sports team that made the playoffs this year.

There are only 10 or so Seahawks games out of 365 days of the year. In 2012, there were about 20 Sounders games at the Clink.
I respectfully disagree with the comment about "least commonality" between Seahawks and Sounders.
There is quite a bit more commonality between Seahawks and Sounders than between Seahawks and Mariners, depending on how one defines "commonality".

Wait, why do the Sounders hate me?! As for me, dont confuse my apathy for hatred. I dont care nearly enough about the Sounders to hate them. The only sports organizations that I could say i truely hate are the Oklahoma City Thunder, the New York Jets and I think thats it.
This was an opinion thread. My opinion...
