Off Topic but On My Mind

My daughter Christi was born on 12/14/83 and in her Baby Book I was given the task of highlighting a few of the major events of the year of her birth. You’ll find on my page in big bold letters SEAHAWKS get new coach & draft Curt Warner from Penn State! That year they missed going to the Super Bowl by one game. They’ve never gone as far since that year until now.

My daughter is now 22 and she’s done well, she’ll probably be an elementary teacher next year and I’m very proud of her!

My Seahawks have been disappointing. I have always cheered for them and watched them faithfully but the excitement that was created that year in 1983 has not yet fully returned until now!

Ah those were the days….
