Sidney Rice visits fan’s barbecue on trip to Switzerland.

The Essential Online Seahawks Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. RATING: PG-13
  • SEATTLE — Being a Seahawks fan in Switzerland can’t be easy with the 5,243 mile distance. Fortunately, Sidney Rice was able to make two fans feel a little closer to Seattle on his recent trip to Zurich.
    Rice flew to Switzerland last week for a treatment similar to Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) on his knee. Knowing Rice was in town, Seahawks fan and Zurich resident Moritz Luescher tweeted Rice a barbecue invite and a Madden game challenge.

    Rice responded to the tweet by sending Luescher a private Twitter message asking for the home address.

    “One of the coolest things I’ve done,” Rice explained. “After my treatment I actually showed up to this house and played a game of Madden with him and his brother. They were pretty stoked.”

  • Nice move Sidney!!!

    The players have been awesome in returning some love to the 12s this offseason.

    This team has a special feeling around it. I hope they and all of us will be rewarded this year with success.
    Until we develop a pass rush that will cause opposing teams to be forced to scheme to defend it we will never be able to completely take the final step. That was done and the final step was taken.

    Super Bowl XLVIII Champions at last after 38 seasons.

    What a special magical year!

    Historically, they're neutral, which translates quite easily to being non-committal and apathetic.

  • *This board has a real hard time picking up sarcasm unless it's followed with the sign guy.

    That said, Seattle's players do a fantastic job giving back to their fan base. It doesn't even have to come with compensation or some kind of media driven agenda. I'm sure a lot of players are willing to go out on a limb for fans, it just seems like another everyday, normal act up here.

  • Thanks for posting Simon! I noticed that Sidney said you guys were not Seahawks fans, but instead just overall NFL (& Madden) fans. Hopefully this changes that and you become 12's!
