Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Have fun with Pitt fans

Check out the 12th Man site we link to here for continued fun with Steeler fans. Hint: if you are a Pittsburgh fan and randomly find our little nook of the internet and feel like taunting, please, for the love of all that's holy, find the Caps Lock button and at least attempt to use some real grammar. It's too the point that I'm a little embarrassed to admit my own fan affiliation with your club.

My particular favorite comment at the 12th Man's site had to be the Pittsburgh fan who dared him to come up with one Seahawk he would rather have over anyone on Pittsburgh's team. I would, of course, argue that the conversation begins and ends with Walter Jones. If you scroll down to our analysis of Wee Willie Parker, you could see where our disrespect for Pittsburgh's shell of a running game comes from.

Football trash talk is always fun. It's even more fun when it comes from east-coasters who haven't watched five minutes of Seahawk football. At least the Philadelphia fans who took me to the Monday Night game have already let me know how much they respect the Hawks. Of course, they are also Pennsylvania homers rooting for the Steelers, but I shouldn't expect better from a group of fans who legitimately thought their squad was going to be "more physical" than the Hawks back that night before realizing yet again that their team was the one full of weaklings. Good times.
