The great you know is a lot from the others to sign this high can it really really is tough it takes some items to save my yard pat Patrick Duncan Seahawks thank god didn't call Matt bush surely his magazine Seahawks seasick regalia but that's something you would notice did you go take on like the tailgating and some a lot of people trick out their cars with the blue lingering in the twelve with the Seahawks look I see people like so many guys got to have like that lay out cement those big cement trucks.

All all all multiplayer relation with the rats that way each and outcomes seem yachts and I'll be expecting and yeah do you like to. Among people would call your people or people start can move will be big blue thing with the feeling that I that's how we do around here I love even gonna tell this. The whole Seattle where you are doing is okay so let's go ahead Larry exclusive Lafarge. It's an invite only invited elect thank you general as my dad's a big bad Jim. 99.9 KI SW we're talking to Darren McLeod McClellan he had a mic on he's actually Derek knowledge is visiting. NFL teams to learn the fan culture Darren wants to know Manny wants help from you see our stand he wants and no okay why should he be a fan of this team over any other team. And I they we have to hear from we got patty because she's been a fan since 1976. Because we haven't always been this good. And so it's great to hear from somebody that's been a fan since it preempt pretty mail address every six is when it all began pretty much patty around my retirement mowing go ahead hello patted. Good morning and welcome to see our country now thank you very much so far so good it's right on. I figured a lot of travel and it's up and get the Internet even if. Hopefully I I don't your phone and he yeah I had no capacity I don't know maybe the best team in the the NFL but your songs are terrible yeah. Yeah. And out the window or how about going to the different that you could be any give resubmit try again got to carry their batting. An OK you're still got the bed as I'm sure he's just I don't know I just told from the seventies. It is yes goods put Arnold I think that that voice on the familiar academically Marmol blew. Oh. No my blue house with high value for a small holes already we got a backseat just listening to dare you what you're gonna notice a new NIC and I want you really keep this in mind move. Is make sure people Wear stuff and they'll Wear their colors and they'll be some crazy people who pay their face but I contend that Seattle fans. Has the the greatest variety of costumes it's a represents Seahawks it's not just let me put on a football Jersey pay my face half blue half green. There are people have amazing outfits they they caused play like a son of a gun it's almost like comic con the way some of the folks really go and do what they gotta do. And so I want death to be on the criteria OK a good decision that's in the criteria like all right he's fans give it to. And cars are super here Vijay would you have me dress and well I like gladiator yeah I DHL and now he's he called gladiator I think yeah yeah it's their freedom received Britney three plus the sound was simple text note freedom was a great par on I don't know he's running the new William wallet million dollars what are we thinking right and see how do unless absolutely pay the faces to the white section yes Graham did little blue and green yeah. I may take got a lot of ways they're not a big plus for our. And messes up the number we want you to call Darren McMullen and let him know why he should be a Seahawks and Telemar the great traditions tell him anything you think you'll give a better understanding of why do you Seahawks fan. Is much better than being a fan of any other team in the NFL and I live in a few different places and I have to say. The fans here really are special it's unbelievable how much they love this team. It's it's on it's it really is a lot of and the players get that and then actually give it back which is I've never seen. Players respond to their fans as well as they do to the seahawk fans and any of other cities I've lived and I. I lived in Boston which is a pretty damn good sports town and so I think the Seahawks fans here are more special than any fan I've seen. Put in perspective after a way games even could be a regular season game especially during the playoffs when the team come back and we 3 in the morning 2 in the morning. There are hundreds of people waiting to greet them. Just say hey Deng's great game especially in the playoffs it's ridiculous but. That's how passionate the Stanley says slots assets I I agree we all know they are now all the whole crew they all they always been are there waiting somewhere where that that vehicle is going to ascending to the B Mac. The fans are there just have to welcome them back with signs and banners and all that crazy stuff and Darren awesome people obviously this tournaments to trampling through right over there Daryn. This unit unlike mama blue's back online now a mom a blue patty you're on with John McMullen go ahead hello again. Apologies. What are they yeah. I have your phone again is the same phone you called before live yeah. Really it's so I don't know I don't know why I read that here that I won't put John altogether because immigration is an actor as mama blues come back to us there Travis Knight suddenly I looks fantastic photo looks all right Travis got I think he's got an offer for you weren't hey Travis. I have to go on a living the dream living the seal dream. What's don't know what should be a C a what you do while I'm here. I mean that being at seahawk fans the greatest kind of the program really cares about it you know the twelfth man they really make you feel like you. You're import into the team we've got. An advisory council that really listen you know fan and try and make very experienced banner we ask for a shorter concession lines and stronger life I. And I got to perhaps suck but tell me who hit. Yes somebody somebody needs to get mama blues some some some better reaction is wow the crowd and got on the next advisory has no Marlins and you found there were gonna right now and so like this for somebody who's new to Seattle. What's something quintessential. Seahawks I can do while meantime what do you think should check out there would maybe. At push me over the management when picking my team. It's a good question I mean hand down to appear later slugger before the game so great how come pioneer square all the fans I'm thumb. Either challenge or you know I'll okay calendar view if you. Told what my friend and I doubt he's green lake park and take a little Duncan scored again that would be. I don't where whereabouts in light upon I agree and they are always the language. And a lay this to say is this a tradition they have here. I did this tradition and now my friend and I knew before every home and. I would I would do we do every home game we have you had a huge jump and a link to unconditional while I'm. Our. I was just aren't you mending the cult because installing we have something called the loonie dipped we call and we do and every New Year's Day cell phone call that culminates a four day party for us fully the biggest. Time of the year and scholars harmony which you guys are code year. And unused he probably still a little bit shaky from the night before everybody goes down minus degree temperatures and jumps. Jumps in this big or Revver and it's absolutely Bolton you may have been inside the polar plunge Moammar yes I'm likely we will win out whether he's talking about so I'll not god studied polar plunge in since I was 5 I am absolutely done for that let's get everyone involved hard and we can we put our show and get that where where where you guys doing this. I think he's got yeah he's done. That's our you know Reno who usually you have back we've got mama Lou that she's back. Hey on the blue Obama bloom let's try and save your phone's working now I'm Erica hill. Tiger has not sorry guys I've heard a while ago horizons are ready to find out what time that polar plunges we can definitely let people know about and I'm not going to be a great ideas and everybody rocket Seahawks you have to sit down. And you have to keep the deeds TV crews there yet TV I will be announced on their TV showing their support for the Seahawks yeah. Get your gear are people who go down over the polar plunge a green lake. And I think we can start great little tradition here that brings a good luck and good vibes to the Seahawks there's nothing wrong with actually out. So it especially anyway and then eleven well it's obviously to do that the lucky Poehler plays well that's what we wanna see that's who should tell you we have got all the time because we we do get a little we we we do get a little too nervous and and very much invested it when we don't we end any chance they get a lot of us are very very bloomers like blue Friday and then real super blue Monday if we don't win on that Sunday yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah we weren't on the sleeve pretty deadly very superstitious bunch sports fans all right and players alike hall of fame if they win somewhere in the same sort of for every game until they lose and and I'll switch to ask you should tell you guys you come for the polar plunge it well with yeah yeah absolutely yes that says yeah come on Darren. And it was this gentlemen it's down McMullen he's got a TV show where he's visiting. NFL teams to learn the fan culture he's been a fan of football since he was a little boy listeners radio in Scotland and all those years ago the but he doesn't have a team and he's decided. I wanna pick a team and this whole show is about him traveling all the NFL cities to find the right team for him and the fancy to convince him and tomorrow morning 8 AM is when the play we just found out AM pour funds are green like. Okay anyone whose Seahawks fans should show up great chance to be on your new television show absolutely and where some see austere I ask him. CR underwear to jump in the water without any clothes on my accent less that perhaps that got out yeah I'm here the opportunity to get Alice and really an additional it's going to be a gorgeous Scotland Scottish stay out there tomorrow do solid cat now away yeah yeah. I actually speaking of like growing up the skull I'm. Regardless of what happens I just it's so happy to be in the country that celebrates. America football because growing up I couldn't get anybody to play football with me because the ball wasn't run you know the rules of what's up all hope we don't play without that's weird. So I asked so until one year I think it was eight or nine years old for NFL football couldn't get anyone play with me saw it quite often be seen in my backyard being my own. Quarterback and wide receiver so it's it. True very sad existence as always it's a sad story is true presets story so Seahawks fans I'm just looking for a community of like minded people that'll accept me for who I am and Jack. Let's take this team to the Super Bowl. And that comes we wanted to know yet about the polar plunge shot at 8 AM green light tomorrow morning I'll open up on our FaceBook page go to Kent KI SW dot com we'll get all the details are different when I want to go out to kiss of his FaceBook page.
