Holmgren's last game is on Sunday, so today Hasselbeck presented him with an award that has previously only been given to players in its 20? year history (don't ask me what the award's name is, I forget). And I don't know why but for some reason the 'Hawks are favored to win in Sunday's game against the Jets.
Some of the reason's I've heard:
-it's the coach's last game, plus it's at home
-Favre is old and the cold is probably making his arthritis act up (I smacked the guy who said that...I love Favre, aged or not!)
-we've poisoned the water in the Jets' locker room.
-we've disabled the engine in the plane the Jets' are taking here.
-we've replaced the Seahawks defensive line with the latest innovation in cyborg technology
-shh, don't tell anyone but we've put an invisible force field along the Jets' endzone
-game? what game? it's snowing! they're playing a game?
Of course I'll be rooting for the Seahawks even though I also like the Jets. Notice how none of the reasons were "because the Seahawks are playing really well and will beat the Jets on merit alone". Yeah...I wouldn't have bought it either.
I kinda wish I had my Christmas present early for all the game watching fun. I already know what my parents got me (since I asked for it, went to the store, tried it on to get the size right and promptly told my brother to tell my mom where and when to get it). For those of you who are curious, they are two Seahawk's Jerseys...a #51 Tatupu and a #8 Hasselbeck. And in case you are click-lazy, yes they are official (premier replica, cuz I can't justify spending $300 on one authentic jersey that won't fit me, much less two), no they are not pink or girly, and yes WordsWordsWords, I was thinking of you when I picked them out!
Go 'Hawks!!! I'm praying...I mean ROOTING for you!
