Back in the 70′s my dad took me to a few Seahawks games in the infamous Kingdome. We grew up in central Washington and going to Seattle was a pretty big deal. Those were some really great memories; watching Kraig throw a bomb to Largent was what it was all about. Gas prices got out of control and luxuries like going to games became too much. For years we watched from our couches.

I went off to college, then got married and along came the kids. In 1999 we found out that the dome was going to be demolished and a new stadium was coming to Seattle. I heard from a buddy that if you bought season tickets before the 2000 season, you were promised great setting in the new stadium… even though it would take a few years to build. I thought about my dad and how cool it would be to surprise him. I went ahead and got two season tickets and have been taking my dad (and family) to the games for 13 years now. My dad turned 76 this year and he still gets just as excited to go as I did as a kid. Go Hawks!
