This past Sunday I got the chance to go to my first regular season NFL game, and it was like nothing I have been to before.
As a Seattle girl, I of course have been a Seahawks fan since I started actually watching football… which I should admit totally started to impress a boy.
My ticket was a Christmas present, and I mighty epic one at that! My seat… right in the middle of the hawks nest. Wow.
I headed over to Seattle on the ferry surrounded by some serious hardcore fans. The chanting and mocking of the Rams started around 4 hours early for the game. It was a sight to see, how excited fans get before the game. Although lets face it I am guessing a bit of that has to do with the amount of alcohol being consumed.
Since sadly I was a merch lacking fan I had to fix that as soon as I made it to the stadium. My first stop was the team store to pick up a beanie and a scarf.
With my cold weather gear I headed to my seat to soak it all in, before all the rest of the fans filed in and the hawks got down to business. The time before the game was spent glancing at the players practice… and stretch… those men have some nice tushies!!
The view from the hawks nest is quite breathtaking.
The noise level in Centurylink is beyond normal. With a 64,234 fans in attendance yesterday afternoon, all their voices were present.
Oh and in case any of you happened to miss the game…. We won! With a final score of 27 to 9 the Seahawks beat the Rams!
On the way back to the ferry I discovered the Seattle wheel celebrates the hawks too.
Now it is time to sit back and watch the Hawks make it to the Super Bowl!
