What's in a name?

Anybody want a bit of trivia? Here you go -- according to Wikipedia, the name Seattle Seahawks was selected on June 17, 1975 after a public naming contest which drew more than 20,000 entries and over 1,700 different names. Thought that was interesting. I'd love to see some of the other submissions!

My new favorite player

Finally, a player who says what I wish they all would. From the News Tribune.com:

"Josh Brown could complain about being the Seattle Seahawks’ franchise player. He could whine about not yet getting a long-term deal. He could treat the franchise tag as his sworn enemy, standard fare for NFL free agents in his position.

Instead, the kicker asks a real-world question: 'Where else am I going to go at the age of 28 and somebody is going to guarantee me $2 million? Nowhere.'"


That answer alone almost makes him worth the ticket price.

Preseason games announced

Ready for the Seahawks 2007? Well, it's still a good ways off, but the NFL announced preseason games yesterday, and here's the rundown:
8/12 - @ SD Chargers
8/18 - @ GB Packers
8/25 - Minnesota Vikings
8/30 - Oakland Raiders
There you have it...I'm hoping to catch the Vikings game, but that's so far in the future, it's hard to call it a plan.

Football vs. Basketball

Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke will be stepping in as GM of the Blazers. This could be the new beginning the Blazers need after a pathetic NBA season. If Leiweke can do for Blazer basketball what has has done for Seahawks football, the Blazers are headed for a better season.
