Same old Seahawks,Johnny...

I have a friend named Johnny O'Saughnessey
(Irish madman) that has bet me almost every year on the Seattle Seahawks. He is beyond the definition of fan. Once when I was at his house and the Seachickens were on I got up to take a piss during a doritos commercial. I had to walk in front of him and he actually got pissed that I had blocked his view of the damn TV during the commercial. His way of giving a large kid a bad time. Anyway the Seahawks FINALLY have what appears to be a playoff contender. Best record in the NFC. I watched the Giants game where their kicker missed three game winning field goal attempts in a row and thought boy this might just FINALLY be their year. We have not bet this year cause I moved to another area about 40 miles away from where he lives north of Seattle. We usually bet a twenty on the regular season record and almost every year I won because I bet him 10-6 and they always screwed up and lost enough games to make me win five out of the last six years. They have a first round bye and home Field advantage as long as they win. There doesn't appear to be much competition in the NFC this year and I might be getting ahead of myself a little to say that they could actually get to the Super bowl. The main competition seems to still be the Colts with Peyton Manning. The Seahawks beat them here last Sat. but it was basically a scrub game as Indy was holding their best players out for rest and rehabilitation. Also Tony Dungy's son committed suicide in Miami and the team is closely aligned with their head coach. I watched the speech that Tony gave to the media about his son and thought what grace, and strength and simple demonstration of deeply held faith. I actually cried.
Sports Illustrated has Shaun Alexander on the cover and some of the media guys are front running to the Seahawk bandwagon. Usually the guys on the cover this week get their ass kicked next week (Packers in what could be Brett Farve's last game as a pro at Lambeau field)but the Packers stink this year and it's a nothing game for both sides.
Since I haven't spoken with Johnny in about six months or so I think I'll call him up and as a way of getting him his money back in one shot offer him straight up whoever plays the Seahawks in the Super bowl (if they make it there) I'll take the other guys. It's the least I can do to a long suffering buddy that is the mortal embodiment of a loyal fan through thick and mostly thin. If they do make it there I probably won't be watching it at Johnny's house.
I probably wouldn't live long enough to collect if they do turn into the ....
Same old Seahawks ,Johnny.
