After last night’s tough loss to the Green Bay Packers, Seahawks players and fans alike had every right to be angry. Still, as a fan of a team that spends a lot of time losing (see below), I know first-hand how important it is to not misplace that anger.
You know, similarly to how Seahawks fans are giving Russell Wilson’s girlfriend Ciara the Jessica Simpson treatment and blaming her for their teams misfortune early this year.
According to USA Today’s For The Win, a Seahawks fan group identified as “The 12’s” have started a Go Fund Me campaign in an attempt to break up the star-studded couple.
Here’s what the fan group had to say, courtesy of For The Win:
“After seeing how great Future Hendrix (sic) career has been since Ciara broke up with him. We think the same thing can happen to Russell Wilson again!!”
Besides the fact that Wilson isn’t even close to in need of a career revival, the plan the 12’s have to break them up is about as logical as throwing a slant from the one yard line when you have Marshawn Lynch in your backfield.
According to For The Win, the fans hope that by raising “$50,000” they can jump start Ciara’s career (again, already has a pretty good thing going), thereby ensuring that she has no time for a relationship with Wilson and the pair break up.
So at 0-2, panic has set in in Seattle. Here’s hoping there’s another way for them to right this ship.
Bryan Altman is, for some reason, an unabashed fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets. If he absolutely had to pick a basketball team it would be the Knicks, but he’d gladly trade them for just one championship for either of his other three teams.
