  • Wait, there's a bar in Amsterdam showing Seahawk games?

    Bugger N'Orlens, that should be the road trip.

    It's Coco's Outback
    http://cocosoutback.com

    They show most of the games and you can request a specific one in advance. I've been there for work the last few years during the first two games of the season. Fun place.

    Last year, my client was the company who licenses NFL video in Europe and turns out Coco's didn't have the licsense to show them and so I'd accidentally gotten them in trouble by bringing my client there.

  • Hi all, since I'm new to this forum my first post has to be this one. Unfortunately Football is not that big in my country and I'm just watching the last two years. Wish I discovered it earlier. Fortunately I can watch 5 games each week on my regular international sports channel.

    Favourite All-Time Seahawk: Richard Sherman
    Favourite Current Seahawk: Russell Wilson
    Places Where I've Seen Hawks Play: Sadly, nowhere yet. Hope they visit anywhere in Europe soon. On the other hand a trip to Seattle is also appealing.
    Other Stadiums I've Been Mostly soccer stadiums
    Favourite Seahawk Memory: Wilson's escapes, such as Wilson's pass to Lockett vs Vikings after missed snap.

  • Hi, I'm TypeSly from Canada... and I have serious obsessive problem if the Seahawks win or lose. :cry:

    I often wonder if the Seahawks organization knows, that they have a HUGE following in Western Canada. If you live in western Canada, any American channels (ABC, NBC, CBS etc.) are fed through either Spokane or Seattle feeds. So we NFL fans all grew up getting to watch random NFL teams on tv every week, but Seahawks every single week. Hawks for life!!!

  • Hey gang.

    I've been a fan of the Seahawks since 1976, but the only time I've ever been to Seattle was in October of last year. I grew up in southern Maine, and I've lived in seven cities/towns in four states (NJ, ME, IL, CA), and I've lived in Brazil for over 20 years now. I've now been to one Seahawks home game: the loss to the Ravens last year. I'd been waiting 43 years to go to a Seahawks home game, and even though the 'Hawks lost, it was a great experience anyway. My only "complaint" is that I found at certain moments, like arriving at the stadium in a Sounder train car full of other people in 'Hawks gear and thinking about my dad, discovering that my seat in the stadium was in front of the sign representing Jacob Green's place in the Ring of Honor, and participating in the "SEA! HAWKS!" chants, that it was awfully dusty there. Somebody oughta do something about that.
    I've also been to two Seahawks away games. My dad took me down to Foxborough to see them in 1984 and 1986. The result of the '86 game was better, but the '84 game was special to me. First, I finally got to go to a stadium to see the 'Hawks play, and then we waited around for the players near the team buses after the game, and I got a bunch of autographs in the game program. By that time, Zorn, who was my first childhood sports hero, had become the backup QB because Krieg had taken over as the starter. I never resented Krieg for that, because I knew he was better than Zorn at that point, but it was still such a huge thrill to me to be able to tell Zorn to his face that I had had his autographed picture framed on my wall in Kennebunk, Maine for years. I wish I could remember what he said (it wasn't anything complicated or profound - just something like "all right!"), but I can remember his face perfectly. He seemed genuinely happy to hear it.
    2019 was the first time I actually got to see all of every Seahawks game in a season, because I got a subscription to the international version of NFL Game Pass. That subscription doesn't let me watch games when I'm in the USA, and I spent almost the whole month of October of last year at my mom's in Maine, except for the weekend of the Ravens game, when I flew out on Friday and flew back on the Sunday-night redeye. I was fortunate that all the Seahawks' games in October of 2019 were on TV at my mom's house.

    My parents weren't Seahawks fans, but I think they both ended up developing a certain fondness for them because of me. Dad was first, starting back in the '70s when he thought it was cool that I'd chosen my own team. Mom started to show signs of it too in recent years. She also started to get frustrated with their fan-frustrating performances, like when she had to turn off the TV and go clean out a cabinet when the 'Hawks were doing frustrating things in the game against the Giants in 2017. Dad always kept up with as much Seahawks news as he could, and passed it on to me when we talked. That really helped a few times when it was hard for me to follow them, like during my first year in college and my first couple of years in Brazil. I really wish he'd lived to see XLVIII, but he missed it by almost three years. In 2013, I decided to start watching more NFL games as a way of staying closer to my mom. So every week, I'd find out what games she planned to watch, and I'd watch at least one game she was going to watch too so we could talk about it. I also watched as many Seahawks games as I could, which was most of them, but not all. And then when XLVIII happened, I was in the horrible little room I was renting near the University of São Paulo, and my mom was at her house in Maine, but I was able to share that moment with her through the magic of the internet.

    It's hard for me to choose an all-time favorite Seahawk. I immediately start thinking about some old-school Seahawks. As I said above, Zorn was my first childhood sports hero. When I couldn't watch many Seahawks games (they didn't show up on TV in Maine much), but my parents had gotten me a subscription to Norm Evans's Seahawk Report, I loved reading about Jacob Green and Kenny Easley. I still think of 28 as being Curt Warner's number. And of course Largent was so great. My avatar is from just after he hit Harden on that play.
    But it's not all guys from the '70s and '80s. Gotta love Walter. Tez too. And of course there are the recent (XLVIII) and current players. In addition the obvious ones, I guess I'll mention that like Jacob Green himself, I had no problem with Red Bryant wearing #79.
    I'll go with Zorn and Jacob Green. If you force me to choose just one, OK, I guess it's Zorn.
    As for favorite current players, I'd prefer to wait. I got a little stung because for some time, ETIII was my favorite player in the NFL, and well...
    For now, I'm rooting for all the players on the current roster.

    I'm pretty sure it was the uniforms.
    I have no idea why even part of a preseason game involving an expansion team from all the way across the continent would have been on TV in Maine in 1976, because I've checked that year's preseason schedule, and the Seahawks didn't play the Patriots. It might have just been highlights, and I can't ask my dad because he's been gone since late April of 2011. But for whatever reason, they were on TV. I asked my dad who that team was, and he told me. And I decided it was my team. Dad thought it was pretty cool that I had my own favorite team.

    That was my first season really following the NFL, and not just catching a few minutes of a game when my dad was watching. I didn't get to see much of the Seahawks that season, other than highlights on the sports segments of news shows (and not even much of that), but my dad kept me up-to-date on what was going on with them. I remember him telling me that two wins was pretty good for an expansion team.

    The crazy thing to me, considering that I didn't have any Seahawks gear yet, is that word spread really quickly that I liked the Seahawks. When the Seahawks played the Bills in 1977, that game wasn't on TV. I wasn't interested in the game my dad was watching, so I was outside playing. But as updates on the Seahawks game appeared on the game my dad was watching, he would come outside and tell me. And he did that a lot, because the 'Hawks were kicking a lot of ass. The score got as good as 49-3, and after garbage time, the final score was 56-17.
    At some point, other kids from the neighborhood came over to make sure I knew what was happening. That wasn't unexpected, because we played a lot of neighborhood football and talked about football a lot, so the kids on my street knew I liked the Seahawks. But the next day was crazy.
    Starting at the bus stop in the morning, then on the bus on the way to school, kids were coming up to me to talk about the game. That continued all day -- on the playground before the first bell, in the classroom, in the hallways and bathroom, in the lunch room, on the playground again at recess, in gym class, and on the bus on the way home. The main topic of most of my conversations that day was the Seahawks having crushed the Bills, and that's extra-surprising because that day was Halloween, which you'd expect to be the main topic of discussion among third graders. I'm not sure how it happened so quickly, but I was already known as the town Seahawks fan.

    I let peer pressure affect me in so many ways as a kid and especially as an adolescent, but I never let it affect my choice of a football team. I wore Seahawks gear and it never bothered me that nobody else did.

    Favorite Seahawk Memory: Game 1 last year. I was in a bar in Amsterdam and the Hawk fans were OFF the chart loud and crazy thinking they were gonna win. I was sweet as pie to them all game. When Rams won, talk about "coulda heard a pin drop" my god was that fun.

    Favorite Food: Vodka or Gin, depends on my mood.

    Best Seahawk Souvenir: My favorite Seahawks souvenir I bought for someone else was an awesome Hawk bracelet I sent to the Hawk fan who runs a Survivor Pool I play in and have won twice. She LOVED it.

    Best Rams Souvenir: My hat from the camp at Oxnard last summer. All the players I adore signed it.


    I was so much sweeter almost 5 years ago.
