Good news 12s! I have one pair of tickets that was donated to help pay for tickets for club members for next season. They are section 338, row HH. If anyone is interested, $400 per ticket should beat any of the resale prices (especially when you include handling fees). If they don’t, let me know. All the money goes back into the club. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
If you’re in the Seattle area or were watching our Facebook page online, you were able to catch Military Sea Hawkers President Traci Williams along with several of our members on KJR this evening. Everyone did a great job including SSG Rizzo who made a call all the way from Afghanistan!
Just like last week, the Military Sea Hawkers tailgate is in the North Parking Lot. This time we’re going to hope that it’s not pouring rain, hail and other imaginable weather events while we’re trying to party this weekend. Look for the Military Sea Hawkers banner as you come in from the north on 2nd Avenue S. on Bob Hill’s camper.
Of course you can always hit up the gathering area for members of all Sea Hawkers clubs located inside Touchdown City where the AFC Championship will be playing on the big screens in there.
Even though it will be a later start than usual, I suspect we’ll be heading over to King Street Bar and Oven after the game and that they’ll at least be open until traffic around the city starts to clear out.
Back in 2006, I was stuck in Norman, Oklahoma, for the last NFC Championship, so I’m pretty fired up to be at this one. So many folks talk about the previous game as one of the best ever. I’m going into this game expecting the outcome to be just as good.
SEahawks vs. 49ers live on AFN/DTS
When the 49ers were on the other side of the bracket against the Carolina Panthers, did you really think we were going to see anything other than a third game between these two teams?
I’m sure most of us were rooting for the Panthers, but in a strange way weren’t sad about this being the game to see which team would represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Win on Sunday and you don’t have to imagine the bragging rights going into the offseason — you can experience it.
You’re probably heard the national talking heads heading into this game. Russell Wilson is struggling since playing in San Francisco. The Seahawks don’t have great receivers, while the 49ers are unbeaten since Michael Crabtree has returned from injury. Everyone is comparing the two offenses and leaning in the direction of the 49ers.
Look at the last four matchups between these two teams. On Seattle’s home turf it’s not even close. The only way the 49ers have played this Seahawks team close is if the game is in San Francisco. This Seattle defense is better than every defense in the league by a wide margin.
Did I mention this is a home game in the playoffs? Most people who watch football know the Seahawks tend to win at home, right? Russell Wilson is 16-1 at home in the last two season AND you’re picking against this defense?
I haven’t even brought up Marshawn Lynch’s name yet. Did you see how he ran against the Saints? He is running like he has a plan to go to the Super Bowl this season and now the only team left in his way are the 49ers.
For those overseas, the game airs on AFN Sports, Sunday at 1530 PT/2330 GMT and 0400 AFG early Monday morning.For those aboard ship, you can catch the game at the same time on DTS Sports.
A replay of the game will air on the same channels, Monday at 0800 PT/1600 GMT and 2030 in Afghanistan.
Sea Hawkers podcast: Episode 23
Another game against the Saints, another win and another earthquake. This game against the Saints was a lot closer than it needed to be, but the Seattle offense ran through Marshawn Lynch and the team came out with a 23-15 victory to move on to the NFC Championship. Adam and Brandan talk about why the game got so close toward the end of the game.
It’s okay to be a bit worried about this upcoming matchup with a good 49ers team. The offense may not be clicking as well as fans would hope, but considering what we’re seeing from other teams right now this offense is good enough to win a Super Bowl. Brandan shares some recent statistics from previous 49ers games that might surprise you.
Mack Strong, former Seahawks fullback for 15 seasons, comes on the show to talk about the attitude of the team right now and how they’re approaching this game against San Francisco.
Adam and Brandan let members of the Military Sea Hawkers know about an opportunity to score two tickets to the NFC Championship game, Brandan talks about a Fox Sports piece on the 12s you won’t want to miss, and they share their latest selections for Better at Life.
