My Inspiration

I’ve always enjoyed to write, but writing requires passion. If you’re not passionate about your writing, how will you stay motivated? And most important of all: who will be passionate about reading what you’ve wrote? No one.

Lots of people have inspired me in my life, and have inspired me to write this blog.

John Morgan was probably my first inspiration. He authored the (still) phenomenal Seattle Seahawks blog Field Gulls, before he left and was replaced by the also epic Danny Kelly. John is a supremely talented writer with a keen eye for football, and a genuinely good guy. He wrote a heckuva great book, too: 100 Things Seahawks Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die. His last chapter, #100, was “Write a Book”. A few weeks after I finished his book, this blog was birthed. (Blog … book … same thing). So thanks, John!

There are a lot of people I’ve grown to love on Twitter, as well. Guys like @Hawkblogger, the aforementioned Danny Kelly (@FieldGulls), Scott Enyeart (@scottenyeart), Adam Wright (@Seahawk_Talk), Johnny Peel (@DKSB17), and many others. These are all genuinely great people first and foremost, but also smart football minds with a passion for the Seattle Seahawks.

And of course, my wife Meghan. Despite our busy lives with never enough time to spend together, she always encouraged me to start this blog, and urged me to write once I did. She’s a wonderful woman, and for that I’ll always be thankful.

I had realized that my passion (read: fanaticism) for the Seahawks was staring me in the face these past years, yet I had never once thought to start a blog and write about the Seahawks.

Thank you, everyone. And thank you Seattle Seahawks.

    Oh, and I’ve met several people once…and they were nice. Later they murdered people. Seriously, it’s a true story. I’m not a fan of your “Morgan is a nice guy” Logic, HAHAHA.

  5. Good way of telling, and nice piece of writing to obtain information concerning my presentation subject, which
    i am going to present in university.

  6. Hey there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m
    planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    I savor, result in I discovered just what I used to
    be taking a look for. You have ended my 4 day long hunt! God
    Bless you man. Have a great day. Bye

  8. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article
    like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my
    opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be much more useful than ever before.

  9. If you are going for best contents like I do, only pay a quick
    visit this website everyday as it presents feature
    contents, thanks
