The Magic is over as Chicago beats Seahawks 35-24

   Well it looks like this Blog will be returning to its intended role as a Mariners Baseball Blog as a result of the 3524 loss by the Seahawks in Chicago to the Bears. But hey, it was a great little run Pete Carroll and his boys put together to allow the faithful 12th Man here in Seattle the chance to believe again. Despite the tough loss today, no one can take-away the magic of the Rams victory as well as the stunning upset of the Saints last week here in Seattle.

   But today our team just never got it going until it was too late, as the cold weather and tough Bears defense proved to be more than our guys could handle. Good luck to the Bears as they face the Packers next week in the NFC Championship game that one more time the Seahawks will be forced to watch from home.

   I expect to see Pete Carroll do some more rebuilding next year to try to put together a team next season that has a better chance of going all the way. While I personally hope Matt Hasselbeck gets to come back in 2011 for another year, I will leave those decisions to the guys who make the big bucks.

   Year after year our faith and resolve as fans and individuals is tested by our local home sports teams here in Seattle, and after 35 years I can truly say that as painful as it has been to root for our guys , I have grown as a person through it all and would do it again in a minute! Go Hawks!
