Oh man what a game yesterday! HUGE HUGE HUGE win for the Seahawks yesterday on the national spotlight! Man I love this team…they looked like monsters yesterday taking down the Saints 34-7. It was supposed to be the battle of the 2 best teams in the NFC, but the battle switched to beat down quick! So many great moments happened during the game…from Russell Wilson’s performance, to the Legion Of Boom, to Michael Bennett’s awesome fumble return for a Touchdown, to Derrick Coleman’s TD when he caught it after it bounced off a teammates helmet, to the 12th Man breaking the noise record, I could go on and on and on…but the ultimate highlight came from one of the officials…
He meant to say “Switching out balls”, but due to the microphone hiccup (I think), it came out like he said “Stretching our balls” – now we know why the officials huddle up so many times during the game to “discuss a play” – waka waka!
Needless to say… Go Hawks!
The one Seattle athlete that needs to shut up is Taijuan Walker – Tai is a pitcher for the Mariners, who apparently is a Saints fan, and he had one of those moments when you regret hitting send on a tweet. Look, I have no issue with him being a Saints fan, but to bitch about a fellow Seattle star athlete is probably not the best way to endear him to the Seattle sports fans. When Richard Sherman tossed a Saints player down on the ground and got penalized for it…Taijuan tweeted that Sherman is a punk… after he tweeted it, he soon deleted the tweet due to the backlash he received.
Thankfully when I tried finding the tweet, I found that Aaron Levine of Q13 retweeted it, and while doing the search I found an old tweet from Taijuan…look at the difference a few months makes, especially when they are playing your favorite team!
