Seattle Seahawks Sunday
It is not true that there was a Seahawks flag in the Sanctuary.
It is also not true that we had a said Mass so people could run off to watch the game against the Chicago Bears. At least I'm pretty sure that's not true; Kathy was a bit under the weather.
It does appear that we don't have any "12th Men" (Seahawks fans) or, if we did, their priority was to be at church instead of the TV because the pews were again full.
But during Coffee Hour Geoffrey did tune in to the game on the radio, set up in one of the Sunday School rooms for those interested.
Instead my wife and I went out for Sunday lunch, finding a restaurant with the game on TV screens and (unlike the Redmond pubs) with seating. Given the amount of Seahawk fervor I'd heard, finding this was surprising. (Though it had a LOT of "12th Men" present.)
But the Seahawks lost. Oh well. I guess it's a bit late now for a prayer for victory.
