Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Sept. 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
Blitz Tops SI.com's NFL Mascot Ranks
Blitz the Seahawk is the best mascot in the League. That's one person's opinion over at SI.com at least, where the Seahawks mascot tops the site's ranks. SI.com writes:
This seahawk already knows he has you beat. He has that cocky grin and pushed-out chest of an older brother that constantly asks you why you keep hitting yourself. We would not be surprised to see Blitz co-star in the next "Expendables" movie.
The Chicago Bears, who the Seahawks will meet in their home-opener this Sunday, Sept. 27 at CenturyLink Field, see their mascot 'Staley Da Bear' come in at No. 2, while the Cleveland Browns' 'Chomps' (No. 3), Arizona Cardinals' 'Big Red' (No. 4), and Buffalo Bills' 'Billy Buffalo' (No. 5) round out SI.com's top five.
