Saying the Spokane Valley Seahawkers are confident about their beloved NFL team's chances in this year's playoffs would be the ultimate understatement.
At the club's meeting before Sunday's matchup at the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons, members gushed about Seattle's recent strong play, and the Falcons' postseason struggles in recent years.
“They've lost their last three home playoff games,” Lynette Allen pointed out. “We'll keep that streak going.”
The fan club boasts about 80 members from Ephrata to Post Falls, who participate in a myriad of activities – including the famed bus trip to Seattle for a game every season as well as raising money for charities.
This year, the group raised more than $3,000 – as well as donating time – for Shriners Hospital for Children, the Make-a-Wish Foundation, the Ronald McDonald House, Camp Fun in the Sun, Blessings Under the Bridge and Second Harvest.
