Seahawks Team Spirit

Here in the City of the Nice, we Seattleites–all greenies, liberals, earthy crunchies, feminists, recyclers, conscientious supporters of libraries, public radio, and separating paper and plastic, sentimental sobbers at gay weddings, thoughtful Starbuck’s consumers who listen to world music, post-Christian new agey people who wear crystals for “good energy”, jammie-clad metrosexuals who talk about health care at Christmas as we give each other Priuses with the Obama stickers pre-applied–would now like to just throw that off for a moment and say, WE ARE AWESOME. YOUR TEAM SUCKED AND DESERVED TO LOSE TO US AND WE ARE GOING TO KICK ASS AT THE SUPERBOWL, AMERICA! RELEASE THE BEAST!

Here’s how Seattleites fill out online dating forms:

Favorite activities: Drinking pina coladas. Getting caught in the rain. Hiking. Eco-care conferences. Men’s drumming circles. Book groups discussing 3rd world justice issues. Swimming with Orcas to understand their pain. Marching in solidarity with our oppressed Gray Wolf brothers and sisters. Crushing my enemies. Seeing them driven before me. Hearing the lamentations of their women.

    But it was amazing, earlier today, before the game, to go to a local grocery store and see Everybody Dressed The Same. Such unity. Such harmony. And did you check the traffic cams during the game? All was calm.

    I’ll lay odds it’ll be standing room only at the Saturday evening Mass in two weeks.

    I must admit, my oldest son said at the beginning of the season that it would be Seattle and Denver this year. By halftime I would have bet anything he was going to be wrong. Heck, with 22 seconds left it looked like San Francisco was going to pull it out. Well played Seattle. Well done Seattle defense.

      I am really looking forward to this game: the #1 offense in the NFL vs. the #1 defense. A fair amount of bone-crunching awesomeness is in prospect.

        It should be interesting. Though I’d have to give the tip to Denver at this point.

        • Dan F.

          Agreed, but I’m still going to root for Seattle sending them packing.

    I just want to add that our champions are very vocally Christian; Wison especially. Fans of the team know about their heartfelt video explaining how the game would mean nothing without their faith in Christ, yet somehow Wilson gets away with what Tebow never could. Wilson is irresistibly likable, vocally Christian, and Seattle’s hero.

      I agree with all of this: I was rooting for Seattle partly because I find Kaepernick a bit squicky, while Wilson is an all-American boy. But, as to your observation:

      He’s also black. Black people are allowed to have public faith. Furthermore, he’s a much better NFL QB than Tebow. Good players are usually allowed their eccentricities.

        Both good points.
