Good afternoon, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Thursday, August 22 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Action, Reaction, Recap
I’ll start with my favorite reply from a fan that was tweeted once McHale announced on Twitter via video message, “This kind of programming could only be rivaled by Ron Burgundy.” Then, of course, you scroll down to later find an Anchor Man GIF that accurately depicts another fan’s reaction to the announcement:
The wonderful 12s of the Seahawks Twitter world went wild in response to the popular actor and comedian Joel McHale joining the Seahawks Radio broadcast for this Saturday’s preseason matchup against the Los Angeles Chargers.
McHale will be joining Voice of the Seahawks Steve Raible, who will be calling the game from the broadcast booth.
I thought it’d be fun to share some of the best replies from our 12s. It seems as if everyone is excited and will for sure be tuning in to listen to the broadcast on Saturday evening.
And how could we forget, a GIF from the relevant and everlasting comedy series, Community?
McHale himself also quote retweeted our quote retweet of his original tweet (wait, what?). The comedy starts here, folks.
Be sure to tune in and listen to this dynamic duo on Saturday at 7 p.m. PT on 710 ESPN Seattle, KIRO Radio 97.3, and in our mobile app. A full list of our radio affiliates can be found here.
Social Post Of The Day
