Military Sea Hawkers Week 5 Newsletter
SSG Joshua Daly reenlists with 12 years of military service. LCDR Kyle Alcock, also a member of the Military Sea Hawkers, delivers the oath.
A few quick ticket items: If you’re in the D.C. area, be sure to check out TiqIQ site for places to find tickets at prices below face value. If you’re outside the Seattle area, this is a great year to get tickets to a road game. You can do tickets and hotel for less than the price of going to a home game.
There are a couple free ticket opportunities for the Seahawks game against the Cowboys, Oct. 12. First: we’re looking for a reenlisting officer for the pregame reenlistment. Respond to the email below if you want to help.
Next, we have two pairs of tickets that were donated for service members who have either recently returned from combat (6 months) or are a wounded warrior. Email email@example.com with a small bio (4 sentences max) of where you were deployed, and if you were injured please share how it happened. The information will be shared with the ticket donor.
Hopefully you’ve heard by now that the Seahawks are 2-1 and defeated the Broncos 26-20 in overtime at CenturyLink. Outside the last minute of the game, the defense dominated Peyton Manning once again. The Broncos improved defense helped keep them in the game with a safety and interception deep in Seahawks territory.
Denver scored 17 points in the fourth quarter to pull even with Seattle going into the overtime period. The Seahawks won the coin toss, Wilson and Lynch combined for 40 yards rushing on their way to a game-winning 80-yard touchdown drive. Word is that Manning is still crying about overtime rules.
Want the ball in overtime after losing the coin toss? Have your defense stop the other team’s offense. If the tables were turned, I don’t think you’d see Wilson pouting about the rules not giving him a chance to get on the field.
Also, I mentioned before that I’m interested in any help folks want to offer. If you have expertise in web development, writing, applying for non-profit status or another service you think the club could help provide, please reach out to me or our club president Traci Williams.
seahawks vs. washington on afn/DTS
The Seahawks have a better record on Monday Night Football than any other team in the NFL. They’ll get a chance to increase their winning percentage against a team whose only win is against the 0-4 Jaguars.
With Kirk Cousins filling in at quarterback for Robert Griffin III, he’s shown that he can be a guy who can throw for 400+ in a game against the Eagles or turn it over five times like he did against the Giants. Which one will show up Monday. With the Seahawks defense, one has to assume it will be closer to the latter.
With a bye week and a game on Monday night, it’s starting to feel like a long time since we’ve seen Seahawks football. The upside is, after this week, we’ll be getting a Hawks game every week.
The game is set to broadcast live on AFN Xtra at 1715 PST, 0015 GMT and 0445 in Afghanistan. For those at sea, the game will air on delay because of the MLB playoffs and you can catch it Tuesday morning at 0400 PST/1100 GMT.
The Seahawks are coming off their bye week and will travel across the country for Monday Night Football versus Washington. Seattle has the best winning percentage in the NFL on Monday and is going up against a team that picked up their one win against a winless Jacksonville Jaguars team.
Before getting into the game, Adam and Brandan congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs on breaking the record for loudest crowd roar and talk about the different approaches the two teams take to the record.
With only a game preview and no game recap, the guys spend time on listener emails that came in during the bye week. Among the questions is whether or not a team should be in London, whether 12s would be okay with having one of Seattle’s games played there, and if fans of U.S. teams would give up their current fandom to support a local team.
After the break, the guys talk about which Seahawks player in their prime they would bring back to the future to play on the current team, offer their picks for this week’s pick’em challenge, and finish off the show in the usual fashion with “Do Better” and “Better at Life.”
