OUCH! Unfortunately, my wife, whom I married in Cal after she got her degree from Cal, is from Seattle. So when I took the job up here, she was thrilled. My son was born in the Bay Area, but by the time he was old enough to understand, my evil Father-in-law talked him into liking the Seahawks, plus he picked them for the colors anyways. I tried, but I was actually kind of proud of the kid for holding out and sticking with "his" team. My daughter was born here and actually watches more football with me than my son. She LOVES Russell Wilson. She knows I don't do Seahawks though so on Monday AM after the game here, she crawled into my bed, hugged me and flipping said "I'm sorry the Seahawks beat you so bad daddy"
Talk about conflict, you can't get mad at a little girl but COME ON! I actually think my wife put her up to it. How's this for pain? I open the door for UPS and the package has four shirts in it, all New Nike Seahawk jerseys to the tune of 430 dollars after tax. My hard earned money has bought Seahawk gear because all the kids are wearing them at school. The wife and daughter? Wilson jerseys, my boy? Lynch and as some really bad joke she bought me a road Sherman jersey because I complain about him so much. Lol, they arrived two days before the chickens lost to Atlanta which was an ordeal of its own. I almost got toasted on that one when I was cheering every time Atlanta scored. I had to open my mouth and claim it was over. Needless to say I was "angry" when Atlanta pulled the choke job, but very relieved when that second FG went through. They didn't take it to well, but I consoled them by saying "well at least the Niners are still playing right"?
