Of course we all know the best Seahawks Christmas Gift ever would be a Super Bowl trophy residing in the arms of Pete Carroll, Paul Allen, Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch, and the rest of the Seahwawks in a few weeks. There is a great possibility of that happening this year and for the next few years but isn’t a month an a half a long time to wait?

Yeah, of course we all want some new Seahawks jerseys or hats or sweatshirts and those make great gifts but don’t you want something more?

I came across a website today that can pretty much provide something no other website can. They will let you create your own dream experience with Marshawn Lynch. The site is IfOnly.com and what they do is provide some once in a lifetime experiences with professional athletes, actors, musicians, celebrity chefs, and more. You want a 15 minute chat with Olympian Summer Sanders? You can do that for $800. Do you want Chris Cornell’s custom Harley FXR? It is yours for $35,000. Do you want Tyler Florence to design your dream kitchen and cook you a meal? Whip out the AMEX and drop $45,000 your dream becomes a reality.

Marshawn Lynch Dream Experience What is your dream experience with Marshawn Lynch?

But we want to talk about Marshawn. IfOnly.com has relationships with athletes and celebrities and partners up with them and their charities  to put together these once in a lifetime experiences. The charity Marshawn Lynch partners with is the Family First Foundation which supports non-profits that promotes, supports and defends the natural family.

For the Minnesota Vikings game they were offering a VIP Gameday Experience which included a tour of the Seahawks training facility, the opportunity to attend a walkthrough practice, a private meet and greet with Marshawn, some autographs, tickets to the game, pre-game field passes, and more.

Since that game is passed that offer is no longer on the table but the thing I found interesting is they allow you to create your own dream experience. You can submit your idea and your offer and IfOnly.com will try to make it happen. Obviously if you suggest something crazy like ride on the team charter to the Super Bowl and hang out in the locker room with the team and bid $500 there is no chance it will be accepted. But since this is benefiting charity I am guessing if you could come up with a reasonable dream experience and be willing to pay quite a bit for it there is a chance it could happen.

Got an idea for a dream experience with Marshawn Lynch? Submit it here. 

So what would your dream experience with Marshawn Lynch look like? Here are a couple ideas I had:

1. Attend Marshawn Lynch’s youth football camps he puts on in Oakland – Marshawn gets a bad rap from some people but he spends a ton of time pouring into the youth in the Oakland area. Wouldn’t it be fun to see him in that type of environment?

2. Get a custom grill with Marshawn

3. I think it would be awesome just to have him over to the house for a bbq some summer afternoon. Just a few hours to hang with him by the pool, eat some ribs, toss back a few bags of skittles…

4. Speaking of Skittles, how about getting him to autograph a bag for you. Seems like $1000 could make that happen.

5. Maybe spend a day with him at training camp, get to be on the practice fields, have a meal with the team in the cafeteria, and lift weights with Marshawn.

6. Go Beast Mode on some fish out on the boat

7. Take a ride in Marshawn’s new Lamborghini Aventador

What would you do if you could have a dream experience with Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks? Go to the Marshawn Lynch page on IfOnly.com and submit your idea. You never know what will be accepted. You can also just submit a message to be hand delivered to Marshawn. How cool is that? So take a minute and send Marshawn a message and submit your idea. If accepted it could be the best Seahawks Christmas Gift ever for someone.

What I Would Really Hate To See

by Joe on August 12, 2013

Unless you have been hiding under a rock you know that during the 49ers game the 12th Man will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for loudest stadium crowd. The folks at https://www.facebook.com/OfficialVolume12 are the brains behind this. You can also see more information at http://vol12.com/world-record

Anyway, the first official attempt will be during the first possession for the Niners. As always the crowd will be crazy for this game (why did I have to pick this season to move across the country to Jacksonville???) but during this game they will be extra crazy and due to the World Record attempt they will be even crazier. If you were an opposing coach would you want the 12th Man taking to an even higher level against you? Of course not.

If Harbaugh and the 49ers were smart here is what I think they should do:  When they first have possession they should get lined up at the line of scrimmage. No huddle or anything. They should know what they are gonna do and have no need for a huddle. As soon as the ref whistles the ball ready for play they should almost immediately get in their stance snap the ball for a simple QB sneak or handoff. No checking at the line, no audibles, no shifting to adjust for the defense. If they do this it will totally thwart the record breaking efforts. I would hate to see this.

Of course as a Seahawks fan I am hoping for a false start penalty, delay of game, or a wasted time out due to the noise. Or a missed communication resulting in a turnover. Any of those outcomes and the crowd would go even crazier.  I doubt Harbaugh is smart enough to do something simple like snap the ball or hand the ball off. He is an arrogant pile and will think he and his team can overcome the crowd noise. But he will be sadly mistaken.

GO SEAHAWKS!!!

In the past finding a good selection of Seattle Seahawks jerseys online has been tough.

Seahawks Playoff Odds

December 12, 2012

One thing I love about football and sports in general is the applied mathematics involved. Percentages, probabilities, averages, and all that come into play. I am by no means a math genius but I do like crunching numbers and seeing how they play out. That is one reason I like looking at sites like Football Outsiders. They […]
