Favorite Seahawks moment: The Beastquake playoff game against the Saints was amazing. I was jumping up and down and hugging just about everyone in our section. But my greatest moment was winning the Super Bowl last February. That was the same day we announced to our family that we were pregnant with little Gregory. We had a big Super Bowl party at our house, and about an hour before the game, my wife stood up and told everyone.”
