After reading Pete Carroll’s book "Win Forever" I had a really good feeling about the Seattle Seahawks and their 2013 NFL season. Call it a premonition, but I kind of knew this would be the year they would go to and win their first Super Bowl. Having this awareness at the outset of the season, I realized that I had an opportunity: why not create a week by week chronology of the season as it progressed, documenting the team’s exploits as they advanced through the campaign to the Big Game? I am also a blogger and I thought it would be cool to publish my reports, both as the season went along as a blog, and after it was over as a book. So that is what I did, and that is what you have in "Why Not Us? A Chronology of the Seattle Seahawks' First Super Bowl Championship Season". If you are a "Twelve" or just a fan of football, you will love it!

About the Author:

Mark Arnold is 63 years old and a lifelong sports fan, particularly of the sports he grew up with—football, basketball and baseball. He was raised in the Seattle area and has lived there most of his life. A blogger and writer of the local Seattle sports scene Mark write's political commentary as well. As a kid, in the days before big time pro sports came to Seattle town, Mark was an ardent fan of both the Seattle Rainiers minor league baseball team and the University of Washington Huskies football team of Jim Owens. Being tucked away up in the Pacific Northwest it may be odd but his real football love in those early sports years of the late ‘50s and early ‘60s, was the Baltimore Colts of Johnny Unitas, Raymond Berry, Gino Marchetti, Big Daddy Lipscomb and Lenny Moore. It was through watching them and reading about them that Mark learned to love professional football. In a family of six kids it was never easy, but every time he could he would watch the Colts on the old family black and white TV, rabbit ears and all. There was as much excitement then watching that old antique as there is now watching the Hawks on a flat screen Hi Def. (It really is the game that counts.) When the Seahawks arrived in Seattle in 1976 Mark was an instant fan of the team, though at the time the Baltimore Colts of Bert Jones, Roger Carr and Lydell Mitchell were becoming good again and required an eye trained on them in the sports pages. When Baltimore owner Robert Irsay packed up the team and ripped it off to Indianapolis in the early ‘80s Mark's Colts ties were severed for good, but by then he was bleeding Seahawks blue and green anyway. Like many Seahawks fans in Seattle, who have loved the team from the start and who pre-date even the “twelfth man” fanaticism of today, Mark gloried in every high the team had, and suffered with every low; all of which makes this Super Bowl winning season sweet and something never to be forgotten. None of the 700,000 plus “twelves” who packed downtown Seattle on the Wednesday following their team’s 43-8 Super Bowl beat down of the Denver Broncos ever will. Mark currently lives with his wife Tammy in Seattle’s Ballard district. His sports blogs can be found at fromanativeson.com as well as his other writings. He can be contacted through that site as well and looks forward to hearing from you. ‘Till then...Go Hawks!
