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

The Essential Online Seattle Football Fan Forum Community. There simply is NO substitute. LANGUAGE 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.”

  • What can a sane person and/or a Seahawk fan say to that? Other than "Are you kidding? That's silly awesome".

  • 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.

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

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking as well - At least I hope so, Switzerland, a 3rd world country?? lol, that's rich....

  • *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.

  • That's a cool thing to do...speaking of doing things for the 12, Doug Baldwin actually went to go visit an acquaintance at the hospital while he was recovering from a bad leg injury. Another friend tweeted him and he responded. This was like 2 weeks ago

  • 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!
