    Sometimes it’s hard to distinguish between heightened NFL popularity, crazy 12 enthusiasm, and the influence of the Super Bowl win. Then again, who really cares?

    I’d give $25 right now to change history and have a Lombardi Trophy from 2008.

    As an aside, a few days ago I saw one of the biggest men I’ve ever seen in my life at my local Fred Meyer store. I’d guess he was 6’4+” and I can’t even guess his weight. HUGE chest, shoulders, neck and arms!! I can’t use enough Cap letters and exclamation marks to describe this guy. A tad chubby, but a basically trim waist. I’d love to meet a current Seahawk D-end so I could better guess how big my guy was. I seriously can’t imagine playing a contact sport against a person this size.
