At the beginning of the Seahawks season I had no plans of continuing to do these Twitter recaps. They’re time consuming, and sometimes they remove some joy from just watching my favorite team and my fantasy team have all-too-often opposite results. However, if you like these, thank Matt Holt and Matt Mikolas, otherwise known as Mrs. Akita and Slickhawk for the right amount of harassment necessary to bring them back. That amount was just both of them saying one thing one time, which was enough because I’m weak. This is a twitter recap of the Seahawks excruciating loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
