Gameday is here my friends! IT’S FINALLY HERE!

NFC Championship, check! San Fran vs Seattle, check! 12th Man advantage, check! Just like the experts predicted at the beginning of the season, this game has been the buzz of the nation all week long.

Ah, who cares about the nation right now anyway? This is all about us here in the Northwest and the 12’s all around the World right now! I feel like making all of my E’s, 3’s today, but to avoid th3 confusion… s33 what I m3an? Ok back on point.

Everybody has something going in this one, right? I mean all of us know a fan of the Ron Burgundy and Gold that we’ve made a critical bet with this week. I’m willing line it up that for most of us, an eyebrow would have been a safer bet too… (if you don’t get the reference, you’re not as much a part of this rivalry as you thought you were).

I’m also willing to bet a copy of next year’s Madden. Not with any of you Cali-jokers that have come on this Seahawks blog to talk smack today of course, I don’t need your Madden, so don’t offer it (there’s a wink in there somewhere). The bet was already made between myself and the most die-hard Niners’ fan I know, my brother. And of course, this was only the tip of the iceberg. The bet was made weeks ago when it was apparent one of us was going to the Super Bowl and we’d ultimately meet somewhere down the line in the Playoffs. After the last meeting in fact. A little respect and a lot of insults and pseudo-arguments have been flying via text ever since.

So it is that bragging rights are also on the line and it’s a really, really big deal! Ok, so I’m not this guy…

… yeah there’s a lot of things on the line in this game (and for the guy above the next game as well).

The Hawks better back us 12’s up on this today too or it’s gonna be a whole lotta crow for dinner and an entire 365 til we get back here next year.

I have no doubts we’ll be talking Super Bowl shortly after 6 pm pacific time this evening. It’s all about staying in the moment, playing the next play and whooping some 49er tail today!

“GO HAWKS!” (the famous Russ3ll Wilson)
