    Russellmania? It won't go any further than Issaquah. Nobody cares about the Hawks, helll most of Washington state doesn't even follow them. Who was their original starting QB?

    BS - they are Hawaii's Team.

    When I was in Hawaii back in the 80s - the Hawks were far-and-away the most popular NFL team from the mainland.

    Were on TV constantly.

    Seattle is the closest major city to Hawaii on the West Coast in mileage. - most people probably think SF, LA , San Diego....

    Wrong.

    Hawaii is a Hawks state.

    So is Alaska and Oregon.

    First time in years I was excited about the start of football season.

    Hawks wil be A HANDLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was in Hawaii during the Ground Chuck Era (Steve Largent era).

    Not an exact science re popularity of teams.

    But I think I'm still correct re Seattle being the closest geographically to Hawaii.

    Oregon is next door to Washington and isn't the favorite, so I'm not sure what being the closest has to do with anything.

    Seahawks go 12-4, win the NFC West - and freaking win the Super Bowl.

    You heard it here first.
