Posted Dec 2, 2013

A closer look at some of the fans who are attending the Seahawks’ “Monday Night Football” game against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field.

On a night when the Seahawks can clinch a playoff berth with a victory over the New Orleans Saints, we checked in with a few of the 68,000-plus fans who are attending the “Monday Night Football” game at CenturyLink Field:

Diane Sherwood-Palmer

Age: 53

From: Maple Valley

Accompanied by: Kevin Thiessen

Fan since: “A fan since Day One, ’76. A season-ticket holder since the 90’s and back in the Kingdome.”

Favorite current Seahawk: Richard Sherman. I love (Russell) Wilson. I’d have to go with both, for the obvious reasons.”

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Steve Largent. “Just all those years and all those great games. I just love Largent.”

Favorite Seahawks moment this season: “When Sherman intercepted the pass and lost his shoe while returning it for a touchdown (against the Texans). The no shoe was hilarious.”

Favorite all-time Seahawks moment: “The Green Bay game last year. But I like the game when it snowed a lot, too (also against Green Bay)."

Rob Chenier

Age: 27

From: Tacoma

Accompanied by: his wife, Shelly

Fan since: “Since I can remember. When I remember watching was when they had Rick Mirer and John Friesz (in the 1990s).”

Favorite current Seahawk: “My favorite player is Russell Wilson. But I would say Marshawn Lynch is a close second. Just their style of play.”

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Steve Largent. “He was the greatest.”

Favorite Seahawks moment this season: “Just the whole 49ers game (in the home opener).”

Favorite all-time Seahawks moment: “The NFC Championship. I wasn’t here for it. Funny story. I had a buddy who was going to give me a ticket for that game. We had a few drinks the night before, when he promised me I’d be able to go with him. I called him in the morning and didn’t hear from him. He remembered nothing about it. I watched on TV and it was great. But I wished I was here” 

Jeff Coburn

Age: 39

From: Pasco

Accompanied by: his wife, Tara, who is from Louisiana and was wearing a No. 9 Drew Brees Saints jersey  

Fan since: “Four years.”

Favorite current Seahawk: Russell Wilson. “I like the morals that he stands for. And also, he did play for the local (minor league baseball) team in Pasco.”

Favorite all-time Seahawk: Marcus Trufant. “Local guy, who played locally at WSU.”

Favorite Seahawks moment this season: “It’s about to happen.”

Favorite all-time Seahawks moment: “Not really. There have been so many.”
