It is a “perfect holiday present for any 12th man.” It’s also something that “should be required reading for all Seahawks fans.” It’s also a large number of other superlatives that I’ve thought of and have decided not to use.

I found myself re-experiencing joy of the Chuck Knox era, the desperation of the 94 saga when the Seahawks almost moved to LA, and the pride of the superbowl season. In case you can’t
