Shut Up About Football

"I’ll liken it to having two children. And one has just been elected president and the other is dying of cancer. When I’m at my dying child’s bedside quit telling me about how great my president son is." ~User Mothy in the comments.

This offseason I tried to do something that I had never tried before. I tried to watch football.

It wasn't easy. I knew nothing about it going in. I didn't know the Seahawks would be good. I didn't know that the team would be fun. I didn't really know anything about football at all. I watched it once in a while, but only because I love sports, and football is a sport, ergo it was on TV every once in a while, and only if I could guarantee that there wasn't a Psych marathon on USA running concurrently.

So I tuned in, and I watched all of the games televised in California.

And it was incredible.

I was cheering like a maniac. I was able to attend a playoff game against the Saints, root against the Niners in a Niner household, and almost man cry after Percy Harvin sealed it starting the second half. The entire season was, combined, one of the best sports experiences of my life. It was amazing.

Now it's time to shut up about the Seahawks in comments. Especially as a negative comment about the Mariners sucking.

I get it. The Mariners suck. Seahawks are great. Doesn't matter. Shut up about the Seahawks.


The Seahawks are exciting. Apparently they traded for a young player that can play backup QB and wide receiver. With Percy Harvin, Beast, and Russell Wilson - can you imagine what kinds of plays you can run? Have Pryor start at receiver and run towards Wilson. Wilson fakes to Lynch. Pryor cuts in. Wilson hands to Pryor. Pryor fakes the throw. Out of nowhere Harvin bolts in, gets the handoff from Pryor, runs 80 yards for the easy touchdown. No one can touch him. I don't know if this is even possible, given that I just started watching football last year, but can you picture it? Isn't it exciting?


Shut up about the Seahawks.


This is not a Seahawks site. We're tired of hearing about them here as a reaction to baseball. If you want to talk about the Seahawks. You can go to www.fieldgulls.com, an SBNation site with many of the same people you see here, but somewhere else. "3 more months until football" is an annoying and bad comment, and it's gotten very old, very fast.


Register with Field Gulls. Shut up about the Seahawks here. If you really want to bring up something Seahawks related, do it in the Off Topic Thread. If you simply want to post baseball related reactionary crud, don't. Shut up about the Seahawks.
