Welcome All

First Blog!

OK Seahawks fans... today was a tough day. The team traded away Trent Dilfer, our back-up QB and one of the best (if not the best) teamplayer we've had on our sidelines. Dilfer has had a tough few years in Seattle: losing his starting job, getting it back, then losing it to injury, and finally, and really the only true tragedy, the loss of his son. He has throughout been a stand up guy (I doubt Barry Bonds would have cooperated in an interview to discuss the death of his son with reporters, has he ever cooperated in an interview?) and a huge supporter of the team and his succesor at QB. I can only conclude by saying that I hope with all my heart that this trade was conducted with full knowledge and approval of Trent (he deserves that at least) and that he will be given another opportunity to start a complete season as QB.

Statistics will never measure HEART.

Food on the table? Is that your argument?

Heart is what inspires others to do their best. Heart is what every coach wishes their star player had. Heart is what prevents Allen Iverson and Barry Bonds from winning championships.

Without the value of Heart, there wouldn't be a movie called "Rudy" which inspired everyone who saw it to give whatever they do their best effort. Instead we could watch "TO", a moving story about a spoiled superstar who has always gotten his way, and when he didn't, he'd whine like a baby. Sounds entertaining.

Well, maybe Shaq has something to do with AI not winning too.
