Almost 25 Years Ago....
I was only eight years old, but December 31, 1983 is forever scorched into my memory: Seahawks 27, Dolphins 20. Until 2005, the greatest day in Seattle's NFL history. Hell, that highlight above (thanks seahawksblue) is even narrated by the late great John Facenda.
When I am sitting in some Columbus sports bar watching the game this Sunday, I'll be wearing my Easley throwback and my mind will drift back to that soggy afternoon (probably in inverse proportion to how well the current Hawks are playing)... It's one of a handful of games in the '83 season that made me a Hawks fan for life.
Finally, sorry for being absent this week... I'm dealing with some personal issues, and was also trying to avoid the urge to gloat about the election in this space.
As always: GO HAWKS!
