Sea Chicken Superbowl

Play it: "The Sea Hawk" by Erich Wolfgang Korngold

Seattle's a little crazy right now... you see the Seahawks (formerly known as the Sea Chickens in these parts,) are going to Detroit in a couple weeks for their first ever Superbowl (in 30 year existence,) against the Pittsburgh Steelers, after demoralizing the Carolina Panthers today 34-17. Yeah... that's right, I actually watched the game. We had some chicken wings from the Wingdome (3 Fire Alarm and Rasta wings,) plenty of beer, and some friends to enjoy it all.

Carolina native Robert of the Radish and I had a friendly wager on the winner, with the loser being saddled with creating a playlist in honor of the winner. I've got to admit... making a playlist for the Seahawks is going to be more of a creative challenge then it would be for the Carolina Panthers. I hope the track leading this post (Erich Wolfgang Korngold's "The Sea Hawk") will serve as inspiration, because after calling the Seahawks an overrated team and predicting victory, Robert's gonna need to 'step up' and deliver on this one.

I might also suggest "Alexander the Great" by Iron Maiden, and "Hassle Attack" from Ann Rabson ;)

Go Squawks!

And you know what else? It didn't rain today... and it's not supposed to rain again until Thursday. It is truly a blessed week.

Ha.. I took a little different tract on my "payment". Since the Seahwaks really do seem to have a "12th man" I wanted to pay homage to the large amount of music talent that has been born from the city. And it's just as impressive as your victory last night.

I don't mean to crash the party here, but just wanted to say that this Pennsylvanian can't wait for her Steelers to kick the Seahawks butt. Hopefully. Hasselbeck, Alexander & Co looked pretty dominant yesterday. It should be a great Super Bowl.

Thank you fine friends... long time residents are still in shock here. We'd come to assume that a Superbowl would never happen.

Steelers vs Seahawks should be a good matchup.

Growing up watching the Steelers play in those great Superbowls of the mid-to-late 70s, I never thought it possible the Seahawks would ever face them in a Superbowl (not only because the Seahawks stunk for so long, but mostly because Seattle was in the AFC thus making it an impossiblity ;)
