Can you hear? ‘Legion’ is bringing the boom | Letters


If you can hear the 12th man roar

and the “legion” is bringing the “boom.”

That means another victim has wandered

into the Hawks’ nest and

into the valley of doom.

They try to run but they can’t hide.

They try to pass but they’re denied.

Our special teams are totally awesome-

to the ball they’re always flyin’;

And these two put the foot in football;

Hooray for Hauschka and Ryan!

Our “D” line is relentless;

they live in the Q.B.’s face.

Our “Backers” steal their momentum

and vanish without a trace.

The offensive line blocks brilliantly

for “Beauty” and the “Beast;”

losing is not an option!

The “Beast” runs on Skittles and pride

and causes earthquakes on the side.

Trying to tackle “Beauty” is like

reaching for a hologram;

there’s nothing there but air!

The “Wizards of Awes” of the Emerald City

is almost too good to be true.

He’s the real 2012 rookie of the year

Because there’s nothing he can’t do!

So welcome to the “clink” - the house

where the 12th man roars!

False start after false start

they’re all too big to hide.

Welcome to the Pacific Northwest-

ground zero for Seahawks pride!
