Want to figure out if your friend is a true diehard Seahawks fan? Ask if they’ve set their alarm for 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 13.
That’s 3:30 p.m. in Munich and kick-off time for the Seahawks. They’ll make history battling the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFL’s first game in Germany.
Here are some of the “wichtig” (that’s “big” in German) talking points to bring up at the beerhall.
- Coach Pete Carroll called the 24-hour period that included meetings, two practices, and the flight “like the longest day ever.”
- Geno Smith thought a painting of him on a Munich tower was “Photoshopped” — but he’s still flattered.
- There’s actually a growing fanbase for the team in the country, including a club called the German Sea Hawkers and an “official headquarters for the 12s” — Augustiner Stammhaus.
Fans can catch the game live on the NFL Network or KIRO 7.
