Richard Sherman & Bandwagon Fans

The game winning pick via

So the big talk of the town is how the Hawks are going to the super Bowl and Sherman's post-game interview. I have a lot of opinions on it, but I really like this mom's take on it so I'll leave you with that....and don't get me started on the cheap shot from the 49ers sidelines. My friends rewound the DVR 3 times to make sure we saw what we thought we saw. Of course Harbaugh is defending him, it looks like a clothesline to me.

So a funny thing is happening in Seattle. Usually, there's people calling out other fans as bandwagon and acting like they're not as much of a fan because they're new or they can't have intelligent conversations about the game.

I remember watching Seahawks and Mariners games in the Kingdome. I had an adult-sized Largent jersey that I'm devastated over my mom getting rid of it who knows how many years ago. How cool would that be now?!? A totally vintage Largent jersey. My favorite song for awhile was the Brian Bosworth song. Hey I was 4, leave me alone. I've always rooted for the Seattle team. When the Sonics turned into the OKC Thunder, and the Mariners have been on a....10 year?....losing streak that left us with the Sounders and the Seahawks. I don't get soccer. I still go to Mariners games but pretty much all my energy is put into the Hawks.

As much as I love the Seahawks, I wouldn't be able to have an intelligent conversation with you about them. I don't always catch the false starts and the off sides. I get confused about what a cornerback does compared to a fullback. Does that make me any less of a fan? Does that mean I shouldn't wear my Hawks gear (or Mariners or Sounders) with pride? I get the spirit of the game, I get wrapped up in the excitement and the intensity of our teams and I see when players like Marshawn Lynch break away with the ball for a Beastly 98 yard touchdown. I am a fan.

Let me say this: thoughts are energy. The more people that think happy thoughts about the Seahawks winning the Super Bowl, no matter how long or short they've been a fan, the more energy there is to make it happen.

So let's all hold hands, sing kumbaya and think happy thoughts. Go Hawks!

  1. "bandwagon" has got to be the most annoying term as of late. It's like... a fan is a fan, who cares when they 'started liking the team' or what their reason was?! Support is support
