Sunday morning links: A big gameday finally here

For a sporting event, it doesn’t get any bigger than this.

Maybe when it’s over, we can assess exactly where this one stands in relation to the other two conference title games Seattle has played since 2006 — and how it compares to other big sporting events in this region.

For today, this feels right there with the rest of them, a chance for the Seahawks to make that much more history.

As it did last week, the betting line is beginning to trend in Seattle’s direction as kickoff nears, now up to as much as eight in some spots.

Another thing to watch this morning will be the weather —- it’s windy as I type this from my palatial Seattle suburban abode, but actually not raining, and it sounds like that could be the case for the game itself. I guess you’d assume wind would help Seattle in making it more difficult for Green Bay to throw the ball, though I’m sure the Packers would argue they play lots of games in inclement weather as well.
