The Seahawks and their fans are an odd specimine. The team is largely overlooked by everyone else, as they're the Seahawks, basically the Bucaneers of the West Coast, except Seattle has yet to win a Super Bowl. While Seahawk fans cry "east coast bias" when speaking about how the sports media pays little attention to them, or points out how useless their contribution to the NFL is, they seem to forget that other west coast teams have earned the respect of football reporters for many years, one namely, the San Fransisco 49ers.
So yesterday, the whiney fans of Seattle took time out of their day complaining about a Super Bowl that happened years ago and were confident that the Seahawks would dominate the 49ers. It wasn't a bad prediction, as I thought they would be the victor as well. Fresh from a good performance against the league's second most hated team, the Patriots, San Fransisco was coming off an embarassing loss to the Super Bowl champion Giants, and looked to be the upcoming loser to their newfound division rival. Seattle, looking for a new enemy since they were entered into the NFC, has found a newfound hatred for the bay area team, and it's been a fun series of games. Coming into the game, the teams were tied at 13-13, and it was now time to break it.
And break it the 49ers did. Oh did they ever...
