Seahawks Won't Leave the Bears Quaking

Seahawk fans take real pride in being the 12th man.  I know firsthand from a couple of trips to see the Bears play there, it’s probably the loudest stadium – dome or otherwise – in the league.  The bad news for them is they don’t get to bring them to Chicago.

By now, you’ve probably seen the Marshawn Lynch ridiculous run to nail down the upset over the Saints.   Even if you have, it’s worth another look

Pretty awesome, right?  Seahawks fans thought so, so much so that they have have caused a small earthquake.  No, I’m not kidding.  Check out this post on Yahoo’s fantastic Shutdown Corner:

At 4:43 p.m. PT on Saturday, almost exactly the same time that Lynch was bouncing off eight different Saints defenders for the touchdown that sealed the Seahawks’ upset win, the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network recorded a small tremor from a monitoring system right by the Old Kingdome, which was blown up years ago to make room for the new baseball and football stadiums.

According to the PNSN, the tremor was recorded at just that one location (the “SoDo” — or “South of the Dome” area).

This puts a lot of pressure on Bears fans to “Shake the Lake” on Sunday and make the Seahawks feel as uncomfortable as possible.  It’s a pretty lame campaign, but when I heard about the supposed quake, it made me think of it.

    Bear fans!!! Over look us, like the Saints did! Make your little lame jokes all you want! We are coming to take this game like we did the last time we played you. Shake the lake. Cmon, your ads are as lame as you are. Game over: SEAHAWKS win!!!

    Brian…assuming you know how to read, please read this blog again. It is extremely complimentary of the Seahawks fans and does nothing to give the impression of us overlooking the Seahawks. Let me give you the cliff’s notes version…Lynch made an outstanding run on Saturday, the diehard and extremely loud Seahawks fans caused a minor earthquake in the area, the Bears are running a lame Shake the Lake campaign which seems to be coincidental and the pressure is on Bears fans to be loud and make it hard on the Seahawks to communicate on Sunday.

    So, in summary, the Seahawks were not being overlooked or slighted and we admit the Shake the Lake campaign is pretty lame.

    Thanks for reading!

      PS – the “Shake the Lake” is a pretty old campaign and was surprised I was able to find a clip on YouTube. Bears fans don’t need to be told when to cheer.
