Seahawks Fan Buzz: Could ‘DeflateGate’ change fan loyalties?

Look for more memes and tweets over on the news story about DeflateGate.

Look for more memes and tweets over on the news story about DeflateGate.

It’s everywhere on the Interwebs. Are the New England Patriots big cheaters for having underinflated footballs in the AFC Championship Game?

Troy Vincent, the NFL’s executive vice president for football operations, told The Associated Press that the “investigation is currently underway and we’re still awaiting findings.”

Vincent was responding to an ESPN report that cited anonymous league sources saying 11 of the Patriots’ 12 allotted game footballs were underinflated by 2 pounds per square inch of air.

Read more in the news story, but we’re enjoying all of the memes and tweets while the story develops.

The crazy folks over at Sports Radio KJR have done a parody of AC/DC’s classic hit, referring to … errr… large pieces of inflated sporting equipment.


Okung’s got moves

Seattle Times photographer Bettina Hansen caught Seahawks offensive tackle Russell Okung dancing on the sidelines after Seattle’s 2-point conversion. Check out that waggling tongue:

Don’t call it a comeback

Seahawks players and fans everywhere have been tossing around names to capture the meaning and magnitude of the improbable events that transpired last Sunday at CenturyLink Field. A few that come to mind include: “The Miracle at CenturyLink,” “The Great Hawk Heist,” “Hawk & Awe” and “Comeback at the Clink.” We want to hear your suggestions, and we’ll put the best ones to a vote.

Which states have more Seahawks fans than Patriots fans?

A company called Estately crunched some data from Facebook and came up with this map of states based on more “likes” for either Seahawks or Patriots. These aren’t predictions about who will win the Super Bowl, but rather a look at where fans of each team live. As the site points out: “Overall, there are 28 percent more Patriots fans than Seahawks fans, so Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin can honestly claim that most people are against them.”

Meanwhile, over on the Verizon website, fans’ picks for Super Bowl are plotted in real time on a map of the states. As of this writing, the Seahawks are picked to win by 52 percent vs. 48 percent picking the New England Patriots.

But who is GOING to the game?

We’re not sure we buy this, but Orbitz.com says the New England Patriots are already in the lead with 13 percent more fans flying from their hometown airports to Phoenix on Super Bowl weekend than the Seattle Seahawks according to booking data. What do you think, 12s? Maybe some Seattle snowbirds are already down there? Maybe everyone from Seattle is just driving? If you’re still thinking you might go and help balance out the numbers, we’ve got plenty of travel tips.

Super Bowl party stereotypes

A new video by Dude Perfect, the third largest sports channel on YouTube, might hit a little close to home for a lot of Seahawks fans. Who’s more annoying: “Mr. Commercials” or “That Girl”? Take a look:

We’re all about boats… until there’s a Super Bowl

Call it an homage, or maybe it’s just smart business: For the second year in a row, the Seattle Boat Show is closing a day early because of the Seahawks’ return to the Super Bowl. The West Coast’s largest boat show kicks off this Friday, but will wrap up on Jan. 31 in time to move the party from the boat deck to the TV room.

Got a great meme?

We’ve seen quite a few good ones from the Seahawks’ win over Green Bay, but who has a good one looking forward to the Super Bowl?
