So the story goes that last year, a buddy took his girlfriend to her first-ever Seahawks game at Qwest Field. A first-timer has so much to see: the tailgate parties, the buzz of the crowd, the sea of blue & green, the excitement of the fans…
And, of course, the continuous back and forth cheers that go on. When one side of the stadium yells “Sea”….the other side yells back, “Hawks”. Back and forth it goes, until someone thinks of something better to do.
As my buddy’s girlfriend sat their in the stadium, listening to the passionate, full-volume yelling that bounced back and forth across the stadium, she finally had to ask: “Uh, why are they yelling Hawks Sea?”
I guess it all depends on when you started listening.
