If any of you have known me for a over a year, you'll know that I love football in general and the Seahawks in particular. I absolutely love the game and all the competition and coverage that surrounds NFL football! I love being a season ticket holder and attending the games even when my lungs have other ideas!
For the last two years, I've been combining my love of writing and love of football and writing for a fan blog called 12th Man Rising, part of the Fansided network and contributor of NFL content to SI.com. I've been lucky enough to have a feature called The View from Section 333. It's been a fascinating journey, learning to be a sports writer and being fearless in my opinion while other fans agree or disagree with me!
Last month, I had the opportunity to represent 12th Man Rising at the Seahawks All Pro Cornerback Richard Sherman's Charity Softball game. I loved being part of the press and catching the excitement of the game, the competition and knowing it was all going to help Homes for Heros and Richard's Blanket Coverage Foundation!
Following the game, I spoke with former Seahawks Joe Tafoya and Kerry Carter, co-founders of JumpIt Media. They produced the Richard Sherman foundation events, including the softball game which was sold out and well covered here in the Seattle area.
Kerry and Joe offered me the opportunity to work with them on their newest project, Volume 12.
Volume 12 is the power behind the Seahawks fan's attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for loudest fan cheer in a sports stadium.
I'm excited to be a part of this process. Part of the joy of football for me is how much it involves the fans in the stadium and throughout the televised audience.
The Official Volume 12 website will be going live in the next few days and you'll be able to catch up with me via the Volume12 blog.
All of which leads me to the future of Asthmagirl. I don't know right now that I'll be able to devote the time I should to Asthmagirl in coming months. But I'm in no hurry to decide right now.
Feel free to leave me your thoughts. I'll be around!
Sending out love, joy and blessings...
