Go Seahawks!

I’m a Seahawks fan. I know I’m from Canada, but the Seahawks have been my time for years.

Last week, something really cool happened. The Seahawks beat the defending Super Bowl Champs the Saints. But the crowd also did something awesome.

Seattle’s home stadium is known to be the loudest in the league. More false start penalties per game (an average of 2.2 per game) occur at Qwest Field than any other stadium.

After Marshawn Lynch’s incredible touchdown run, the noise from the stadium registered on a seismometer run by the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, mounted about 100 yards away.

In about 20 minutes, the Seahawks play the Bears in Chicago, so no home field advantage. I still predict a Seahawks win though!
