    Did you not read my post? I said there are members from all pro sports that do drugs, I did not exclude the Broncos.

    Yes,I saw it. Just a bit tired after shopping for a disabled neighbor & installing his new tv & shopping for myself since many stores here are going to be closed for the game tomorrow.

    That's mostly BS, hyped up by the media so they'll have something to talk about. They say the same s*** about Eagles fans or whomever. Home team stadiums tend to be loud, and the more that's riding on any given game, the louder they are. (Until the home team starts to lose badly, then they leave early and quietly). I'd be willing to bet there is a only a set decibel level that XXXX thousands of humans can produce. After that, it would depend on the weather, and the design of the stadium to either amplify or soak up the ambient noise.

    And I suppose it's also true, that some city's fans don't give a crap about the football team, and sit there watching their team lose with dignity and reserve.

    When The Philadelphia Eagles are playing, the local TV news channels, always give some loudmouth the opportunity to prove he can spell "E-A-G-L-E-S" at the top of his lungs, and look like an imbecile with an 80 IQ doing it.

    Can you spell,"Seahawks"?

    And BTW, there's an old expression that goes something like this, "empty barrels make the most noise".....

    Are you actually from Seattle, or are you just one more "instant fan, just add victory", jumping on the bandwagon?

    Happily born & raised in this lovely area with NO interest in ANY Pro sports till I started following the Seattle Mariners several years ago.
    The pre season hype of how good the Seattle Seahawks are, got me interested since The Seattle Supersonics won the BIG one 34 years ago.I've watched every Seahawks game this year although I know nothing about Pro football. I have faith in the Seahawks, NO faith in the referee'.
    Have a lovely Sunday captaincranky:)

    As long as you live in the Seattle area, you've got my approval to rant all you choose.

    I'm still waiting for anything more than a passing interest in pro sports to kick in myself. It better do it soon, since I'm 65.

    All I get out of my hometown Eagles, is the impression that pro sports are not much more than a cash cow for elite owners, and seemingly mindless allegiance from the "herd" of fans".

    I haven't even had that much interest in the Phillies, since Richie Ashburn won the NL batting title, somewhere around 1960.

    But, I do have a real beef with instant fans. When any pro team wins a championship, anywhere, much of what it does, is cause a riot, and bring out a bunch of closet vandals.

    Occasionally, The Flyers make it into the playoffs. When they do, I make it a point to root against them. Who wants to listen to all the crap and noise a win would generate, in spite of the fact I'm usually up all night.

    I'm actually into the "unmanly" (?), sports of women's figure skating, and tennis, (both sexes). The women's game has lost most its appeal for me, since the dominance of Serena Williams emerged. I thought a genteel sport such as tennis was supposed to transport its participants out of the ghetto. The younger Williams sister, seems to have made it her life's work to drag it back there.

    And Christmas you ask? Bah humbug!

    I'm aware of the score, thank you very much. Keep in mind that even if Denver were winning, I'd still have the game turned on to mostly ignore.

    I don't like any of the halftime acts either. So, my other computer is still tuned to, "the erotic art channel". (My good taste, however minimal it may be, prevents me from linking that for you). Accordingly, I apologize for being unable to offer you any reciprocal largesse....

    The only actual interest I would have in Denver winning, would be so that I don't have to listen to you quite so much. So now, go ye forth and enjoy the rest of your Sunday as well.....

    I will say that the way Manning and the Broncos are playing, I won't be buying, or even leasing, a Buick "Verano", anytime in the near future.

    I knew who was on the halftime thing so I watched my local news.

    It seems I got that earlier apocalypse jab exactly backwards. Looks like its time to click up the ol' edit button!

    Dude, it was still hilarious. It was however, an abject fail as a prediction ....:oops:

    When games get like this, you just need to go from a combative overview, and start viewing them as a comedy. That's what I do with Eagles games. I laugh my a** off, whether they're doing the trouncing, or being trounced.

    WOW! Denver just scored! Maybe there's still hope.....or not.

    It's even going far better than a fair weather fan such as yourself, deserves to hope for....:p

    Gee, I'm not sure if I should be congratulating the Seahawks or @learninmypc for being such a super fan. I think I should congratulate both! :D (y) (y)

    Well, as I said previously, I know nothing about pro sports, I just know when the Seahawks goes across that line & the guy in the stripes raises his arms verticall,its a touchdown.
    The pre season hype got my interest & since the Steelers stole it from us in 2006 I think it was & the Seattle Supersonics last did it in 1979, I fugured we were due for a victory.
    In all honesty, I truthfully expected the broncos to trounce us.
    We made history by scoring in the first 12 seconds according to what I heard & same thing for the 2nd half.
    Anyhow, I thank you for your comments & hope the Seahawks repeat it next year as I hear we are expected to do.
    GO SEAHAWKS, WORLD CHAMPS!!!! :) :)
