Friday Five: Reasons to Root for the Seahawks
3. The Blazers Connection
Although the departure of the Sonics from Seattle is still an open wound to many, there has been an increase in people from Washington becoming Trailblazers fans. If a state that got their team stolen from them can start to love their neighbor to the South’s team, can’t Portland love a team to the North in a sport they’ve never even had?
What’s more, the man who has helped get the Blazers to where they are, Paul Allen, also owns the Seahawks. The Timbers vs. Sounders rivalry must be put aside, this is FOOTBALL. Not FUTBOL.
