HAWKS HAVEN #8: THE START OF A NEW ERA…OR IS IT?

HAWKS HAVEN #8: THE START OF A NEW ERA…OR IS IT?

At a time when you’d probably least expect it, Hawks Haven is back! In case you forgot about us already, Hawks Haven is a running article series that covers our beloved Seahawks, and as the Mariners continue to tumble towards a very favorable draft pick you definitely could not blame us for taking a peek at what the Seahawks have in store for us in 2019. Let’s be honest here. 2019 has not treated the Seattle sports fan well, and…

THE GREATEST SNACC ON EACH MLB TEAM

THE GREATEST SNACC ON EACH MLB TEAM

Snack (n. /snak/): a light meal, food eaten between regular meals –courtesy of the Merriam Webster Dictionary. We love snacks. We love a good snack, a little treat that can temporarily fulfill our hunger before a large meal. However, no one on this planet can resist a snacc: Snacc (n. /snakkkkkkkkkkkk/add additional “k’s” if necessary. The number of “k’s” should be proportional to the extent to which the person is a snacc): a incredibly attractive human being, in fact so attractive that…

2019 MLB PREDICTIONS

2019 MLB PREDICTIONS

We’re at the final stretch before the start of the 2019 MLB season, and things are starting to come into focus as teams are finalizing their roster selections. The flurry of moves in the offseason has answered many of our questions regarding the final destinations of top free agents, but the anticipation has shown no sign of letting up. How much of an impact will Bryce Harper be to the NL East division race? Will the Oakland Athletics repeat their…

EVERYTHING WRONG WITH SUPER BOWL LIII

EVERYTHING WRONG WITH SUPER BOWL LIII

On February 3rd, 2019, Super Bowl LIII came and went, and that’s about it. This year’s Super Bowl was probably the most anticlimactic finale to a season that the NFL could have offered, and as one of the 100 million or so viewers that were confined to their seats for three hours on Sunday afternoon watching that mess, I was not impressed. This was not the Super Bowl we all signed up for (except if you come from that one…

SUPERBOWL LIII PREDICTIONS

SUPERBOWL LIII PREDICTIONS

The Superbowl is here, and I’m really looking forward to the Maroon 5 halftime show. Here’s a rather generic intro to set this article up, just for formality: Ah yes. The pinnacle of the NFL football season, and the culmination of weeks and weeks of thrilling regular season games, surprising upsets, and tight playoff games, to be left with two teams fighting for glory. This weekend, the now-settled Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots battle it out in…

HAWKS HAVEN #7: HEARTBREAKING END TO A INCREDIBLE SEASON

HAWKS HAVEN #7: HEARTBREAKING END TO A INCREDIBLE SEASON

It’s human nature to always ask for more even when we have everything we need. The truth is, Seahawks fans got everything they honestly could have reasonably wished for this year, and more. Yet, this season ended on a rather unfulfilling, unsatisfying note. The Seahawks marched into Dallas as the de facto favorite last Saturday, but unfortunately could not pull through in a gut wrenching 24-22 loss to the Cowboys. And with that being said, it’s sad to say that…

HAWKS HAVEN #6: LET’S BEAT THEM BOYS

HAWKS HAVEN #6: LET’S BEAT THEM BOYS

Welcome to Hawks Haven, playoff edition! Today we have an exciting game to preview: a prime-time, NFC wildcard matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and our Seattle Seahawks at Jerry World. Personally, I am pretty nervous for this game. The Seahawks qualitatively have a better squad than the Cowboys, but I am still skeptical because this game is not at CenturyLink Field. AT&T Stadium is definitely a nicer alternative to the hostile tundra that is Soldier Field, but the crowd won’t…

HAWKS HAVEN #5: LET’S SNAP THIS INSIGNIFICANT LOSING STREAK TO THE CARDINALS

HAWKS HAVEN #5: LET’S SNAP THIS INSIGNIFICANT LOSING STREAK TO THE CARDINALS

Hello everyone, Happy Holidays from the Seattleite crew, and welcome to another edition of Hawks Haven, where I will preview the Hawks-Cardinals game this Sunday. There’s not much at stake in this game other than some seeding implications. As long as a Seahawks loss isn’t coupled with Vikings home win against Chicago, the Seahawks will stay rooted at the 5th seed in the NFC Playoffs, and will have to travel to Dallas next week for the first round of the…

HAWKS HAVEN #4: PLAYOFFS BOUND

HAWKS HAVEN #4: PLAYOFFS BOUND

I know that we only do Hawks Haven on Fridays, but this moment deserves an edition of its own. The Seahawks are IN the playoffs!!!! After a huge win against the Chiefs at home, Hawks fans can finally sit back, and throttle back on their weekly scoreboard watching and their nervous fiddling with FiveThirtyEight’s playoff predictor feature. The Seahawks did everything that I believed they had to do to beat the Chiefs today, including building up an early lead, creating…

HAWKS HAVEN #3: SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IN THE RAINY CITY

HAWKS HAVEN #3: SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL IN THE RAINY CITY

Welcome to another edition of Hawks Haven, where we will preview the Seahawks’ upcoming matchup against the Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. This will be the first Seahawks appearance on this primetime show, after an underwhelming 49ers season took them out of a Sunday primetime slot in Week 13. Prior to week 14, I wasn’t exactly sure how important this game would be for both the Chiefs and the Seahawks. If a handful of results occurred in week 14, this…
