Seattle Seahawks Sunday

It is not true, as Fr. Davis confirmed before today's service, that the altar was dressed today in green in honor of the Seattle Seahawks, our local football ("American football") team playing in the playoffs starting about the same time as Mass.

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.

    We actually pulled for the Seahawks this last Sunday. Our hope was, had they won, to get tickets for Prue & Drew to see the Packers play the Seahawks here in Seattle. Alas, it wasn't meant to be. :(

    We were pulling too! A disappoint to see the score 21-0 against the Seahawks when we arrived, but they did a fair job after.

    Don't know about the player taken off the field on the board; pray he will be okay.
