Michelle Obama Interviews Richard Sherman

In a new video supporting her ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign, Michelle Obama interviews Richard Sherman who along with the Seattle Seahawks sous-chef cooks up an example of a healthy meal for children in school. The best part of this video? Richard Sherman responding to Michelle Obama spoofing his very controversial post-game rant from last season. How can we forget?

He is just the best.

Seattle Seahawks – World Champions

Okay okay, I know I said I was done with this, but I can’t help it. Every time I watch something about the Seahawks or read something about my team, I get the biggest grin on my face. It’s amazing how this video showcases just how many people doubted our team and our players, but yet we came out on top anyways.

We did it. 2015 – Round 2.

“All We Do Is Win!”

I wish I could have written this right after we won the Super Bowl this weekend, but I was too busy celebrating. This win means so much to the city of Seattle and more than anything I wish I was home to be with the city and storming Capitol Hill like I know everyone else did. Every non-Seahawks fan called the game boring, but like…that’s because you weren’t dominating! I’m not sure what I would have preferred – a game that forces me to have a heart attack every minute or to rest easy knowing that you’re just going to win the whole damn thing.

I can’t even tell you for how long it has been that Seattle sports hasn’t been taken seriously – The Mariners, The Supersonics getting taken away. We needed this. Everyone said that we would never make it – that we weren’t the team to watch out for – that making it to the Super Bowl in 2005 was just a fluke, well what do you have to say about us now? We earned it.

I am overcome with this joy of having the best football team, the most driven and hungry players, crazy fans, and being from the city that backs all of this up completely.

Mandi and I couldn’t contain our excitement, clearly. After the win, we rounded up our crew and took on San Francisco with our Skittles and our Gushers (we love you Lynch and Sherman) and distributed our snacks to the best Seahawks fans in the city. We pretty much fed San Francisco.

Super Bowl 2015 – we’ll see you there!

Some of the the best articles came out yesterday after the win so here’s a roundup below:

Marshawn Lynch and His Skittles Deal

The days to the upcoming Super Bowl are winding down and the Seahawks players are becoming fast favorites! I don’t mind. I’m willing to share our team with other states that didn’t make it to the Super Bowl if people want to root for them. I’m not sure when everyone discovered that Marshawn Lynch’s favorite candy was Skittles, but it was announced TODAY that Lynch has struck a deal with them! As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. In fact, the desired feeling was so immediate that I ordered Tommy to try and find it on Google Shopping Express only to shortly discover that they were so limited edition that they won’t even be in stores!

Starting Wednesday, the limited edition pack of blue and green Seahawks skittles will be auctioned off here before the Super Bowl with proceeds going directly to Lynch’s charity – the Fam 1st Family Foundation.

Pinterest Allows You to Pin Animated GIFs

I cannot lie and say that I haven’t been waiting for this moment for some time now. It has been almost a dream for me to create a whole pin board dedicated to my favorite GIFs and now this has been made possible. As of right now, you can only pin GIFs on Pinterest via the internet, but the website promises that it will be on mobile soon enough. What has also made this a little bit more interesting is that you can share a GIF pin to another user on Pinterest. Basically you can do this on Facebook too, but I’m curious to see if this will pick up among their audiences. Below is my favorite GIF for the time being…because like we’re going to the Super Bowl next weekend y’all!

Richard Sherman Interviews the Tiniest 12th Fan

I’m really tired of listening to Bay Area radio stations talk trash about Richard Sherman and how nasty they think Seattle is. We shouldn’t be blamed for the actions of a small group of people who chose to behave poorly.

Regardless, nothing can stop us from being Sherman fans and Seahawks fans in general. I am wishing more than anything that I could be back home for the Super Bowl!

Richard Sherman Don’t Have to Change

“I ran over to Crabtree to shake his hand but he ignored me. I patted him, stuck out my hand and said, “Good game, good game.” That’s when he shoved my face, and that’s when I went off.”

There’s a whole lot of debate about Richard Sherman’s post-game interview the day after the big Seahawks vs 49’ers game and frankly, I don’t find it to be a big deal. Sure, the rant was a little cray and intense, but that’s how Seahawks fans ARE. The whole city is kind of crazy and I love it. We’re going to the Super Bowl so of course everyone is a little bit excited and in the heat of the moment Richard Sherman just wasn’t holding anything back. I don’t think he necessarily said anything wrong though because everything he said was true…Crabtree was talking smack about Sherman earlier this week.

And in case you missed it… what everyone’s talking about on your Facebook newsfeed:

It’s uncomfortable to see how non-Seahawks fans reacted to this and how quickly this got ugly with racial comments. Cool it. Bros, u just mad you didn’t get it.

No, but in all seriousness, it’s a game. It’s a rivarly and I don’t think it’s something that people should take too seriously. Richard Sherman is not a villain. He is not uneducated. He graduated with a Communications degree at Stanford and he’s worked his ass off to get to where he is today. The city of Seattle is proud of him and the rest of the team and I don’t think they need to change up what they’re doing. Sherman knows that the post-game interview he gave may have come off wrong and because of that he’s written a post to address it. You can read it in full here – and it’s worth the read to at least hear the other side of the story.

Super Bowl Bound! #GoHawks

It feels GOOD to be a Seattlelite today and more than anything I wish I were back in Seattle roaming my streets and celebrating with the rest of the city. It was a good game. And I suffered through a bunch of anxiety just watching it. The rivalry spirit is strong and pretty much everywhere you go here in the Bay, but that’s to be expected. I am, after all, in the enemy’s territory. I did say today, however, that I didn’t feel like we deserved to be in the Super Bowl unless we could beat the 49’ers. They’re one of the best teams in the NFC and it was important to earn that win.

I wish I could be back to see the Seattle spirit. I’m so proud to be from this amazing city and I can’t wait to proudly rep my Russell Wilson jersey…when it gets to me!

We goin’ to the Super Bowl!!!!

Take Me There:

We’ve gotten on a bad habit lately of being late on posts that are tied to certain days of the week and YES I have dropped the ball TWICE this week. More than anything today, I would love to be at home in Seattle to see my Seahawks win over the Saints! Let’s make our way to the Super Bowl y’all! I can’t wait!

In fact, I wish this game could start now because the anticipation is killing me and I won’t do anything else until this game has resulted in a win.

16 Reasons Why We Should Root for the Seahawks @ the Super Bowl

I am completely jazzed about the Seattle Seahawks being in the Playoffs right now and on our way to the Super Bowl. It’s no secret. Buzzfeed published a humorous  little post yesterday on why we should root for my team to win at the Super Bowl and I am all over that. Here’s a GIF of Marshawn Lynch scoring and being awesome for your enjoyment and for the rest of the entertaining read, click here.

In Case You Missed It

My Seattle Seahawks became the NFC West Champs yesterday!!!

I was up in the air flying my way back to the Bay when the game was happening, but when I arrived in Seattle just one week earlier, I could already tell that being back in Seattle was going to be a little different this time around. The energy was high. Everywhere I went, I was always seeing Seahawks gear. SEA-TAC airport could not stop shameless promoting and encouraging those flying on Alaska Air to root for our team. We’ve come a long way, but it’s time to make our way on down to the Super Bowl y’all! I cannot wait.

Bree surprised me on Friday night by inviting me to the Seahawks vs 49’ers game in San Francisco! I was the most excited Katie especially since I had never been to a hawks game back in Seattle and this was the game to watch this weekend as both teams are pretty heavy rivals with each other. In just the three months that I’ve been living here in the Bay, I’ve had so many firsts and I’m glad that this was one of them! On top of just being at the game and being pumped for that, I had two friends from Seattle that were visiting and at the game as well. It’s always nice to see familiar faces in a new city and they were such sweet reminders of being home.

I didn’t get any smack talking from anyone personally, but when I was with the boys some really sketchy aggressive dude came up to us and was just like “Today is not your day” to which Brandon responded “Well, it was our day 11 out of 12 weeks tho! 49’er fans… your talk is weak. Since I didn’t have any Seahawks gear, I didn’t stand out very much except when I was 1 of 4 cheering in my section for the Seahawks. I think my parents worry about me sometimes because they have no idea how they possibly raised a daughter with a mouth on her hahah but I was in a sea of red so I zipped up!

Attending my first game was quite the experience, but it was cold. We lost. And it doesn’t always feel that great to be rooting for the opposing team when you’re on the home turf. Additionally, I couldn’t see anything so next time maybe I’ll just stay at home and watch in the comfort of my own living room. I’m so glad that I can say that I went though. It was incredible! I do, however, want to go to a Seahawks game when I’m home because I’ve heard those are much more fun.

We’re Fans of the Seattle Seahawks

HOBviously. There’s kind of a big game on Sunday and it’s causing a divide between my co-workers and I because naturally I’m repping Seattle in a 49’ers area. I may have moved here, but I wasn’t ever going to convert over. What I love about the Seahawks is that our fans are insane, but they’re some of the best fans you’ll ever see. Our players are incredibly involved with the Seattle community and because of this, our city has so much love and pride for the team. That…and we’re kicking butt. For my favorite Seattle readers, here are a couple of videos to get you excited for this weekend’s game.

Marshawn Lynch – Beast Mode

I miss Seattle the most on Sundays. This special 12-minute feature on Marshawn Lynch aired on Monday I think, but since I didn’t get a chance to watch it I just now finally caught up with it.

Seahawks, I love you.
