It’s not because the Seattle Seahawks have the worst record in the league.
And it’s not because their sucky coach is, as a sports fanatic friend put it, “excellent as a college coach but shouldn’t be in the big leagues.”
I want the Seattle Seahawks to lose because Seattle Sucks!
I make no bones about my hate-hate relationship with Seattle. I live some 30 miles south of the city, in Tacoma. (Take note, Emjay. That’s Tacoma where I live, not Seattle!) And though small in number, those 30 miles demarcate worlds of differences.
And as we speak, the Hawks are battling the New Orleans Saints in Seattle in the NFL playoffs.
And I’m rooting for the Saints.
Not because I’m particularly enamored of the Saints (though I do like Drew Brees) but I’ll root for anyone NOT Seattle!
It’s not looking good at the moment. At the start of the fourth quarter, the Hawks lead 34 to 20.
So the Saints had better get on the ball, toss out a few Hail Marys.
The Seahawks – pluck ’em! GO SAINTS!
