Ok, there's your sermon for the week. On to the preview through the genius of Swingers:
"Look at this, okay. I want you to remember this face here, okay. This is the guy behind the guy behind the guy". To Marshawn Lynch. We need you to be that guy. We need Beast Mode to make its triumphant return to Seahawks Stadium. When you score your first touch down on Sunday, go ahead and grab your junk again as you leap backwards. Maybe we can cause some more seismic activity.
"I don't want you to be the guy in the PG-13 movie everyone's *really* hoping makes it happen. I want you to be like the guy in the rated R movie, you know, the guy you're not sure whether or not you like yet. You're not sure where he's coming from. Okay? You're a bad man." To the offensive line. I hesitate to bring back the pile of suck that was the Jim Mora era, but we need you guys to be dirtbags. If you have to dive at the knees of Darnell Dockett to prevent a sack, ok. If you happen to accidentally leg whip someone while you're run blocking, that's ok too. Hopefully Tom Cable's teaching you how to do that without getting caught.
"I'm gonna make Gretzky's head bleed for super fan 99 over here". To the national media and to a certain extent our friend Pep who we just about bought a #99 Rams jersey a few years back. If the media's not servicing the Rams and Sam Bradford, they're servicing Kevin Kolb and the Cardinals. Well guess what? That stops on Sunday. Kevin Kolb has yet to face the roar of the 12th Man. Sure, he's aware of it since he was with the Eagles when they were here a few years back. But Kolb's only concern that day was how to keep the clipboard from getting wet.
"So it's just like a retroactive decision, then? I mean I could, like, forget about her and then when she comes back make like I just pretended to forget about her? Right. Although probably more likely the opposite". One of the more funny, confusing moments in the movie, and it fits perfectly with Brandon Browner. Our latest incarnation of Kelly Jennings and Terrell Bierria said the other day that going against Larry Fitzgerald won't be all that tough. After all, he's no Mike Williams or Sidney Rice. You're absolutely right Brandon. Larry knows how to get open and occasionally finds his way on to the field. The only thing you have going for you is that he's not as fast as Mike Wallace was last week. Although I'm beginning to wonder if you could even cover Mike Wallace from 60 Minutes.
"I'll have a scotch on the rocks, please. Any scotch will do, as long as it's not a blend, of course. Single malt, Glen Livet, Glen Galley, perhaps, any Glen." Well, I can't guarantee that we'll have a bar as well stocked as that on Sunday, but it'll be close. Maybe if you're real nice, I'll share the private stash. The password will be Crown Royal.
"You ready hip hop? You ready New Kids on the Block?" You ready for another season of Seahawk home games? Because I am. This promises to be a great year of tailgating. We'll have some new features, some new people, old friends, and great times. This Sunday starts the turnaround to the Seahawks season. My 9-7 preseason prediction may have been just a bit on the optimistic side, but 8-8 is still firmly within our grasp.
