Storm plans championship night; Russell Wilson a women’s soccer fan

Storm games are no different than funerals, nail salons and youth soccer games when it comes to spotting Seahawks Super Bowl championship gear. It’s become a fun game to see how long it takes to spot a shirt, jersey or hoodie wherever you are these days. So, obviously it’s good marketing to try to mix…
