Before the new season kicks off, we take the Sea Hawkers Podcast on the road (please excuse the road noise). On the way back from the Richard Sherman Softball Game Adam and Brandan talk about the game, their experience the night before the game from the top of the Columbia Tower and offer background about how they each became Seahawks fans.
The guys get into a little bit of news with some comments by Andre Reed about Richard Sherman and comments coming from Golden Tate as he compares his new team to the Seahawks and what he expects to be different for him.
Coming up on the anniversary of the podcast, Adam and Brandan discuss the origins of the “Do Better” and “Better at life than Skip Bayless” segments. They also welcome suggestions for improvements for the upcoming year.
Jason talks about why he thinks Sherman deserves to have his teammates on the cover and offers his take on wheather or not he believes in any kind of “curse.”
It feels like a new season is starting now that OTAs and minicamp are over, and the Seahawks have now received their Super Bowl rings. Time now to get started on the 2014 season. In this show, Adam and Brandan talk about being one Viking closer to getting Adrian Peterson, offer our thoughts on Earl Thomas taking over as Seattle's punt returner, and our thoughts on Marshawn Lynch and rumors that he is unhappy with his contract.
Richard Sherman was recently voted to be face of Madden 2015. He wants the rest of the Legion of Boom to join him. Midwest Sea Hawker Jason Coiner comes on the show to discuss his petition to attempt to persuade EA to grant Sherman's request.
Lastly, we have one of our listeners from “across the pond” give us a call, FIFA and Charlie Whitehurst are called out in the “Do Better” segment, and Brady Quinn and Richard Sherman are our distinguished Better at Life representatives.
The Seahawks are fresh off a trip to the White House where they were showered by praise by the President. President Obama was disappointed he couldn't get tips on dealing with the media from Marshawn who, according to his mom, just didn't want to go. Adam and Brandan break down how well BO did in the presence of the LOB.
With rookie mini camp having wrapped up this week, the guys talk about the 2014 draft and some of the players who stood out. Kevin, a listener from “enemy territory” in Denver calls in. Since he pointed out on Facebook that he “dropped a bigger bomb than Denver's D” we figured we'd definitely have to play his call and give him a really hard time for a really minor slip up.
Lastly, the guys talk about the Legion of Boom now being signed through the next few seasons, before having Sgt. Jeff Baker, Army Ranger and Purple Heart Recipient, come on the show to talk about his experience announcing the Seahawks fourth round draft picks.
Cover32.com and the owner of the Cleveland Browns are reprimanded in the “Do Better” segment. The guys wrap the show up with nominations for “Better at Life” directed toward a decision by the NFL owners to hold off on playoff expansion and an effort by Adam Corolla for taking on the podcast patent trolls.
