The Ring is the Thing!

Understandably without national fanfare and a trip to the Whitehouse, the 2005 NFC Champion Seattle Seahawks were recognized this week and received their championship rings.

While the 2005 season fell a few steps short of the ultimate goal, and the corresponding date with the President, Tim Ruskell put everything in the proper perspective:

"This is about what you guys accomplished," Ruskell said he told the players. "No other Seahawks team has ever gone to a Super Bowl. No other team has won 13 games. No other team has won 11 in a row, led the league in scoring, led the league in sacks."

This new addition to the players' jewlery boxes will hopefully serve as a reminder of what great things can be accomplished when everyone is pulling together, and what's left for them to do.

  1. For those of you who are Sirius Satellite Radio subscribers and NFLRadio listeners, you'd swear one of the teams from the NFC East should be getting these conference title rings. ;-)

  2. We got a ring baby, but it's not the one we want. We got to get it this year in Miami, lets kick this season off and win a championship.

    For all FIFA World Cup Soccer fans go, Azuri (which is Italy for those non european futbol fans.) I hope an African team can win but they won't and love the U.S squad but their group is too tough.

    Wow i just talked more about Futbol than football on a Seahawks blog. Guess i gotta love the street for this.

  3. Just incase anybody wants to know i was not the one who was advertising that soccer thing on the T.C's post.

  4. LOL meezy, You made me laugh! Alba, where can I get mine?

  5. TC - You can get yours if you win enough cash at the Texas Hold 'Em table!!
