I have always had a fondness for listening to games on the radio. But I also like the play-by-play guys talking during interviews with other people too. The amount of knowledge and remembrances they have about certain teams and certain moments those teams have had is brilliant.
Being quarantined with Steve Raible, the Voice of Seahawks radio since 2004 and before that the color commentator for the Seahawks since 1982, would be story after story about Seattle football. What could be better than that?
But Raible is more than just a broadcaster. He was a member of the Seahawks first team in 1976 as a wide receiver. I could talk to him about what it was like to be on a team just beginning and what kind of growing pains they had and how the franchise eventually made it to the playoffs in 1983.
In fact, just a few weeks would not be long enough to discuss everything I wanted to with Raible. Like, what was it like to call games involving Cortez Kennedy and Kenny Easley? What were some of his favorite personalities on Seattle teams of the past? How did it feel to call the Super Bowl when the Seahawks destroyed the Broncos 43-8. There is simply too much to talk about with Steve Raible.
