Damn, the Seahawks treat the fans right. Here's what I just got in the mail via FedEx:
-My 2 season tickets... Who's mug is on each ticket?
Bears: Chris Gray
Raiders: Leroy Hill
Cards: Big Walt
DC: Deon Grant
-Seahawks 2008 Team Yearbook (face value $10)
-Full-size 12th Man Flag (with list of all the people who have raised the flag before games at Qwest). I bought one of these last year for $40, so now I have a back-up piece, so to speak.
This is brilliant... You'll have about 60,000 houses who can fly the colors this fall. Smart move, Ruskell.
-A shit-ton of coupons, info flyers, etc.
So the Hawks gave 60,000 people gifts with thier tickets that add up to a $50 value if you tried to buy them off the street. That's a great sign that we root for a class organization that cares about the fans.
I have a friend who's Dad just got Vikings season tickets. She asked him what cool gift THEY got, and he sheepishly admitted that they got ZILCH.
