Rivalries aside, football means “family time” for Mollie Martin. “I love the football season because it’s the only time we all get to hang out in the same room.”

I got a pretty good idea of how much some Seahawk fans despise the 49ers when I sketched Gary Buchanan’s “Hawk One” tailgating motor home at the beginning of the season. Lift the toilet seat inside the vehicle’s restroom and guess what you see down there: a San Francisco 49ers bumper sticker to aid as a target.
In the postseason, though, I’ve come across an opposite reality. Love and understanding between Seahawks and 49ers fans is still possible, even when they live under the same roof.
Jason Martin has been married to a die-hard 49er’s fan for 18 years. “We couldn’t handle political differences,” he said, but football is OK. It helps to have three TV screens to watch the multiple games at once during the regular season, added Martin.
