Clark: It’s OK Not To Root For ‘Hawks

We met in a downtown parking lot after midnight. The little guy wore an overcoat a size too big at least. His face looked like it hadn’t felt a razor’s edge in days. He told me he was the last non-Seahawks fan in Spokane. “No names,” he added, looking nervously over his shoulder. “If you write anything about this, just call me Deep Route.” I had to laugh. “With apologies to Watergate, of course.” Deep Route gave me a blank look and said, “Huh?” “As in Deep Throat,” I explained, “Woodward and Bernstein …” “Who’d those guys play for?” asked Deep Route. I shook my head. “OK. Never mind. So why’d you call?” Deep Route grinned. “I want people around here to know it’s OK,” he said. It was my turn to play dumb. “OK?” “Yeah,” he said. “That it’s OK to not to jump on all this Seahawks bandwagon baloney. That it’s OK not to act like a bunch of ignorant sheep”/Doug Clark, SR. More here.

Question: Anyone out there willing to say s/he is not a Seattle Seahawk fan?
