Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Monday, April 29 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Quite The Long Night
Wow. Just wow.
Episode three of season eight of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones aired on Sunday evening and a handful of Seahawks players went wild on Twitter. As I’m sure you know from reading previous GoT reaction articles on Seahawks.com, there are plenty of Thrones fans within the walls of the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.
I’m going to pause and take this opportunity to warn you one more time, some of these tweets and retweets DO include spoilers for episode three, ‘The Long Night.’
Now, let’s jump into some reactions as a sliver of our roster enjoyed the enormous battle of Winterfell.
I think it’s safe to say that Dissly, Brown, Baldwin, B-Wagz, and Martin loved what they watched. Some GoT fans are even calling it the best episode in the series. It’s no surprise to see a reaction from tight end Will Dissly and offensive tackle Duane Brown, as they normally share their reactions to each episode on Twitter, but it’s nice to see some of the vets hop on the train as well including linebacker Bobby Wagner and wide receiver Doug Baldwin.
I for one cannot wait for what’s to come in next week’s episode and I think it’s a safe bet to say that some of the Seahawks above share the same feeling. For a full in-depth analysis of the episode, I recommend checking out this article published by The New York Times.
Social Post Of The Day
Today’s ‘Social Post of the Day’ comes from Seahawks tight end Will Dissly, as he welcomes his newly-drafted teammate (and former UW teammate) linebacker Ben Burr-Kirven to the team. BBK was the Seahawks’ fourth-round pick at No. 142 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft.
