So THIS happened today. I’m still in shock. So incredibly grateful. I got to personally give my 12 book to 4 Seahawks and Coach Pete Carroll, who all gave me quotes or have photos in the book. It was especially thrilling for me to meet Seahawks #RussellWilson since we both are from the same hometown, Richmond, VA. He signed a football for me! They all signed a book for me and took a photo with me. A dream come true!!! ONLY in Seattle would you be able to combine fine art and football! This book would have NEVER happened in any other NFL organization. Thank you Julie Barber and Seahawks! And thank you Russell Wilson,Coach Carroll, Doug Baldwin, Jon Ryan and Steve Hauschka! GO HAWKS!!!
Before the home opener at CenturyLink Field against the Chicago Bears, I had the honor of meeting Steve Largent and he signed my book! We’ve emailed and talked on the phone but never met. SO honored he wrote the forward to my 12 book! (photo by Shaun McBride)
Look what was flying over the city! Pemco Insurance’s flag signed by 42,501 fans and 22,458 fans submitted photos for the flag! Check out the video of the making of the flag:
I also got to see Mamma Blue. Check out her makeup! She’s 85 years old and a sweetie pie. Her quote in my book is my favorite one of all. She is the BEST! (photo by Shaun McBride)
And finally meet Mr. and Mrs. Seahawk! They are so nice!SO much fun at the home opener against the Chicago Bears! My friend Shaun McBride and I went, thanks to Mark Davis for the incredible tickets! (photo by Shaun McBride)
While walking to my seat as the game was about to begin, I saw this fan behind the Hawks nest charging his phone before the game starts. Love the light patterns on the green wall!
The game is about to begin! This is my friend’s Shaun McBride’s first Seahawks game! We are on the 40 yard line in club seats! Not a bad way to see the game for the first time! We are forever spoiled.
STILL can’t believe that I’m HERE! GO HAWKS!!!
It seemed like there were twice as many Seahawks fans as there were Patriot fans!
On the airport shuttle and airplane ride from Seattle to Phoenix, there were TONS of Seahawks fans making it so much fun! You felt like you were part of a HUGE family!
One of my best friends in the whole world, Annie “Pally” O’Neill, met me in Phoenix for the big game!!!
This cool Volkswagen bug was shipped down by it’s owner, Hans, who stayed at the hotel where we were staying.
We had to drive over to where the Seahawks were staying to pick up my media pass.
SO exciting to see Russell Wilson’s image on one of the buildings!
STILL can’t believe I’m HERE, AND on the field at the SUPER BOWL!!!
My friend Fran texted me this photo she took off of her TV with me in the background at the Super Bowl! So fun!
It was so fun for me to come home after photographing the games and watch the entire game recorded on our DVR (especially when we won : ) It was especially exciting for me to see me on the sidelines!
I would have to walk by the Seahawks Locker Room to enter and exit the field. There is a HUGE 12th Man flag signed by fans that is hanging beside it.
