Even though I have no TV, I'm in a position now to return to that regular winter-time tradition of spending Sundays watching foopball on the glowing tube.
Besides having an up-until-now secret fascination with the skills and brutality of the game's mock warfare, I'm a convinced partisan of the Seattle Seahawks, who are teeing up against "the gang green" (New York Jets) even as I type this.
67,000 Screaming partisans are jammed into the frigid atmosphere of the open-air "Clink" (Century Link Field) to watch the Hawks take it to the Jets. They pay big bucks to sit out there in the cold, but I feel like I've got a better seat, and the price is right.
