I'm writing this as we watch the Seahawks play the 49ers in the NFC championship game. And, I must say, I'm rather impressed with the level of fan support 'round these parts. I sometimes feel like I'm truly the only person not wearing Seahawks gear when I leave the house, and pretty much every local business is having specials - including Starbucks, which had a promotion for 12 cent coffee the other day. My kids have done their share of 12th man projects:

If you're not sure who the 12th man is, as I'm gathering there are people who are not, here's more info than you ever needed to know. After returning home on Friday with his big ol' flag, my son was asking if we could go to the Seahawks game. HA! Kids, man. I tried (IN VAIN) to explain how tickets were hard to get, and rather expensive. Once he gets older, I'll also explain to him how we're really Bears fans at heart. Sure, we're excited and always cheer for Seattle, but we're not bleeding green and blue over here. He liked my explanation that most people stay home and have a party while they watch on TV, and immediately asked if we could have a party with cake. Sure kid!
