A Festivus for the rest of us

Seahawks fans came out in droves on Saturday in San Diego.
It was family day here at the VMAC as the Seahawks had their last practice of the week before heading to San Diego tomorrow for a preaseon matchup against the Chargers on Saturday.
A day after the Seahawks dropped its first home game in nearly two years was Festivus. Given that the social media trends this week seem to have followed the path of the cult-classic holiday, I thought we could have some fun and examine the social media fallout from the 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. So, gather around your Festivus pole and read on…
The airing of grievances
While the defense played a dominating game, scooping up four interceptions and two sacks, the offense sputtered. @DangeRussWilson had what may have been his worst performance since entering the NFL as he went 11/27 for only 108 yards.
As the frustrations mounted, those watching the game took to social media to air their grievances. As I was in the stands, I could hear the boos and murmurs of a failing offense. But on Twitter, the criticism was a bit more pointed.
As we look forward to Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams, it’s another championship week. Fans have turned positive again as we look toward locking up the number one seed in the NFC with a victory.
