Is it football season yet? T.G.I.B.F.

A look at the week ahead surrounding your Seattle Seahawks.

Thank Goodness It's Blue Friday.

Roughly 24 hours separate the Seahawks from their second preseason game of the 2013 campaign, as they welcome the defending AFC West champion Denver Broncos to CenturyLink Field. The game marks the first competition at home for the 'Hawks in 229 pigskin-deprived days.

Twenty-three days still stand between the Seahawks and their September 8 regular season opener on the road against the Carolina Panthers. So after you enjoy tomorrow night's preseason home-opener in the Emerald City, have a look at what's on tap in the days ahead with your Seattle Seahawks:

  • Preseason Game No. 2 vs Denver Broncos. Kickoff at 7 p.m. PT from CenturyLink Field. The game will be broadcast on Q13 FOX, 710 AM ESPN Seattle & KIRO Radio 97.3 FM. If you have trouble finding our preseason games outside the Seattle area, check out Preseason Live, where you can watch preseason games live online with your computer or tablet device.
  • Kevin Lee, the Make-A-Wish recipient who the Seahawks hosted at Virginia Mason Athletic Center in early June, will have his visit aired on ESPN's "My Wish" series at 8 p.m. PT. The show debuts during the Seahawks game against the Broncos, so consider this a friendly reminder to set those DVRs.
