When last we spoke, we had a Seahawks team that was going 7-1 and was cruising their way to their second straight NFC West title. The second half of the year gets a little tougher as 5 of the 8 games are against division opponents and it includes an east coast trip to the probable NFC East champs. We continue our preview through the genius lens of Seinfeld.
As I boarded a flight home on Monday night from Minneapolis, I found myself torn between two emotions. One was sadness as it meant vacation was over and I really could have used a few more days drinking gin & tonics on the pontoon boat out there on West Leaf Lake. The other was excitement though, as I realized we were a mere 10 days away from football season and the joy that comes with watching our Super Bowl Champions in person. That emotion was further entrenched as I was watching the Hawks-Bears game I had recorded while I was away. 2 straight weeks of offensive domination by our starters begins to put thoughts in one's head. Like 19-0 kinds of thoughts. The start of football season also means the return of regular blogging here at Hawkstrong.com and I hope we've got a few more of you along for the ride this year. Actually, this is really for my own entertainment but if others are simultaneously entertained, all the better. As you regulars know, I'll usually tie the week's upcoming game to a movie and see if we can't have some fun. Well, I'm honestly running out of movies to use because I have a set of criteria I need in order to use them. First, I have to have seen it. I'm not the world's biggest movie buff so that eliminates a lot of choices already. Second, the movie needs to have some good, solid quotes that everyone knows. It also needs to be able to relate those quotes in some manner or fashion to football and that week's game. For these reasons, the list is short and I don't really want to use the same list every year. So, we're trying something different. For the preview this year, we're using classic Seinfeld quotes. The first part will be today. The second part hopefully in a couple days. Enjoy.
