Tonight is the Seahawks' first regular season game. In fact, it's the first regular season game for the league. The Hawks ended up splitting the preseason 2-2, but that matters nil. The Green Bay Packers are currently ranked ninth in the league, and they're predicted to do quite well this season. The Seahawks, of course, are still ranked first. They're only predicted to lose two games this year, and this is not one of them. Moreover, this is the loudest crowd in the NFL, and it's the first regular season home game coming off a Superbowl win. It's really tempting to think it will be a trouncing, but, speaking as a lifelong Seattle resident and an on-and-off spectator of its professional sports teams over the years, one still fills with dread at the possibility of a choke.
