As our boys pack up their belongings and say good-bye to their families on the way to Cheney, it's time for the Seahawk faithful to step up and provide some love and support, especially to the young ones! I'm not talking about bunking with them, or bringing over a nice covered dish - - - I'm talking about the 12 Seahawks Street Adopt-A-Seahawk program!
Last season, we all learned a lot about a few of the emerging stars on the Seahawks roster, like Michael Boulware and Kelly Herndon, thanks to the Adopt-A-Seahawk sub-blogs. We won't mention the one annointing the next starting middle linebacker for the Seahawks! (HINT: it wasn't Lofa Tatupu!)
The idea is to adopt a Seahawk player, either a rookie, free agent pickup, or perrennial backup vying for a starters role, and follow their progress through Training Camp, the Pre-Season and throughout the 2006 campaign.
Basically, you'll create your own sub-blog with the look-and-feel of the 12SS main site, and have total editorial control over the content for that site. Bluefoot and the other 12SS site administrators will be available for any technical assistance you may require, but it's really not that difficult a task - why even a Monkey can do it!

To Adopt a player on this list, or anyone else on the Seahawks roster, just leave a comment on this topic and we'll get you started. All we ask is that you periodically update the content on your site, and enlighten the Seahawk faithful about player we might otherwise not get to read about.
