Do you remember?

Its funny, the idea that Seattle is a sports town. An entire generation has grown up without ever feeling the joy of a postseason win. Instead they were assaulted with catch phrases like “It’s Now Time,” and “Alive and Kicking” and even “We Like Our Chances!” Ultimately, this lowered anticipation that things would ever truly turn for the better.

This is such a different look at the league MVP. But in Seahawks Huddle’s defense I also found this. A little better look at today’s Shawn Alexander. But also this brings questions to my mind.
