Great football evening . . .

Wow!  The Seahawks put it altogether tonight dominating on both offense and defense holding the Saints to less than 150 passing yards while winning 34 to 7.  They did it without Pervy Harvin, two suspended corner backs, and lack of a running game.  It was once again Russell Wilson's night.

My son and I were also able to be on the field for about an hour before game time.  We were on the 15 yard line on the Saints side of the field for warm ups almost completely surrounded by Saints fans that traveled from New Orleans for the game.  Mostly corporate types that talked business, acted like they knew the players personally, and shared a little "smack" while suggesting that we were on the wrong side of the field.

Loading the overhead camera
I was amazed by the size and speed of the athletes.  Two other things made the experience very interesting.  First is the noise, it is much louder on the field than in our seats, even before the stadium started to fill up.  Lastly, though I thoroughly enjoyed being on the field and close to the action, I like the view from our seats where we can see the plays unfold.

Great night of football and the Hawks secured a playoff spot.  Now onward for home field advantage.
