To quote a wise old guy…
To quote a wise old guy…
As I stated back in September:
“Hey! It is nearly upon us, yet not one peep do I hear about the upcoming showdown (first of three, I really believe, with the winner of #3 taking home the prize)
What say you MyBallard? Love to be up for this game but will miss it by a few days, unfortunately. Best two teams in the NFL, in my opinion.”
prophecy fulfilled… end of rant…01/12/2014 at 2:39 pm #57192
I agree with you Old Guy, best two teams. I think the Seahawks will bring it though.
Gosh I hope Percy Harvin is okay and can play but I rather he heal and be ready for the Super Bowl :-)01/12/2014 at 3:22 pm #57198
I’m worried about Percy, but hopefully Pete will give us good news during his interview tomorrow morning (or at least by his Tuesday press conference).
I just read in SF Gate that, reportedly (in addition to the Canadian provinces) Only credit cards with addresses from Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, Alaska and Hawaii will be allowed to buy tickets to Sunday’s NFC Championship between the 49ers and Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.
I’d like to think that we weren’t trying to stop Niner fans from buying tickets. Seats will likely sell out faster than they did for the N.O. game, but still. Hopefully someone local can confirm or deny the story.01/12/2014 at 4:10 pm #57206
We’ll get those 49ers this time
@Mrs. Wahoo who cares?01/12/2014 at 4:52 pm #57215
Go Hawks!!!!01/12/2014 at 4:55 pm #57219
Seahawks vs San Fran is the real Super Bowl01/13/2014 at 1:49 pm #57336
It is true that tickets cannot be bought with cr cards that have CA address01/13/2014 at 8:28 pm #57388
It’s true. And it’s wonderful.01/13/2014 at 8:43 pm #57389
be watching it in the comfort of my den with an ample supply of goodies and liquid refreshments, sons & grandsons coming over, be a good time and a game to remember…01/13/2014 at 9:53 pm #57393
Denver is doing the same thing with their ticket sales also. Limiting the tickets to Colorado regional area.01/14/2014 at 10:08 am #57429
@Mrs. Wahoo who cares?
Since I heard “…ha ha, the Seahawks are SCARED…” every time my DH saw or heard the story, I cared! But I understand teams put regional limits on playoff tickets nowadays, which I didn’t know.01/14/2014 at 10:08 am #57430

Seems like the hosting city would want many tickets reserved for the visiting team fans, for economic reasons…01/14/2014 at 11:20 am #57441
I remain concerned that the Hawks were not able to get that second td just before the half. I fear that’s indicative of something bad. The offense is a little stagnant which I attribute to lack of talent at receiver.
Still I think it’s awesome we get to see a third game against the 49ers this year especially when it’s for a NFC Championship.01/14/2014 at 12:11 pm #57453

Ballard Girl, I think the team would prefer to have as many hometeam fans in the stadium as possible. But I’d think the city (or businesses within the city) would probably make more money from someone flying in from California (such as hotel room, meals, cab fare, car rental, parking), than they would from a fan who traveled from Ballard. Still, I’d much rather have a stadium full of Seahawk fans!01/16/2014 at 6:14 am #5767901/16/2014 at 12:11 pm #57717
12 cents for a tall beverage at Starbucks on Friday. Wear your Seahawks colors to get the deal!01/16/2014 at 1:18 pm #57725
According to this guy, we’re going all the way this year. And he’s known since the beginning of the season. I think that settles it.01/16/2014 at 7:30 pm #57781
Mrs. Wahoo, I agree with you on a stadium full of hawks fans, but there is something to be said about the economics of the situation. If all the tickets go to in town fans, we are missing a bit of a boost in other ways. And rather than ‘many’ tickets for the guest team, I could have used a better word, like, 20%? Just enough to fill the nearby hotels, earn some tips for restaurant workers and have more shoppers. We have to pay for the stadiums…Would rather have 49’rs fans contribute!01/18/2014 at 6:28 am #57950
Well, on Friday night there were tons of 49er fans wearing their gear down on Ballard Ave.
So either they are from here and rarely wear gear out or there are many fans that traveled here for the game Sunday.
So either way, check your doors and windows are secure … j/k01/18/2014 at 4:24 pm #57988
On a short walk today I saw quite a few ratty cars (needed mufflers, low to the ground) driving around with windows open, 5 & 6 youngish guys. The last one that just passed me had a few yelling “wait until tonight Seattle” – that one was riding past BC park.
I wonder if they have red & gold clothing stashed in the trunks.01/18/2014 at 8:05 pm #58001
I am sending very positive thoughts to the Seahawks for the game tomorrow! Enjoy the game!
