Posted on 12/18/2016 5:52:54 PM PST by Hojczyk
This past Thursday, Sarah Palin attended the Thursday Night Football game between the Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks. Her husband Todd, as well as best-selling author Debbie Macomber and others accompanied the former Alaska governor at CenturyLink Field, to watch the NFC West tilt. Seems pretty pedestrian. But while the Seahawks wore Action Green uniforms as part of the NFLs Color Rush, some in the media saw red over Palin daring to have an opinion on just about anything. Its all part of the medias continued unnecessary roughness.
For Palins part, she had a blast. She posted pictures all over social media. She even got to chat pre-game with Seattle assistant coach and fellow Idaho Vandal Tom Cable. Seemingly just a normal American woman enjoying the American spectacle that is pro football. But, the media pounced harder than the Legion of Boom.
Palins football fandom was questioned by the Seattle Times. The headline read Sarah Palin is apparently a Seahawks fan and is in attendance for Thursday Night Football. Well, they got one thing right. Palin was there. But, apparently a Seahawks fan? What is that about? So the woman who made up a Trump-fueled, anti-Muslim attack was instantly believable. Hillary Clintons countless lies were given a free pass. Yet, the same media just cant fathom Governor Palin likes one of the 32 NFL franchises, particularly the one closest to her home. Got it.

Canceled my subscription to the Seattle times 6 years ago when they started putting politics in the sports page. It has gone down hill from there.
Conservatives are not even allowed to enjoy a freekin’ football game. How sick are liberals. I almost wish for a civil war.
Crap face liberal media.
EDITORS NOTE (11:29 a.m., Dec. 16, 2016): This post erroneously suggested that Sarah Palin was escorted to Thursday nights Seahawks game at CenturyLink Field. She was not. The escort was for the Seahawks team bus, as reported Friday by The Times David Gutman. We are leaving the erroneous report below as is in an effort to be transparent.

GBU Sarah and family.
Personally I dispute the 69,066 number of attendees noted in the article; I’m sure it was 70,000...
I think conservatives are about to enjoy more “football”...with liberals as the ball.
I thought Sarah was a hockey chick?
Awww, she was on the opposite side of the field from me. :(
This story proves that Sarah still lives in the heads of the Leftists rent-free 24/7.
Todd looks great! Hope he’s fully recovered!
My Dad, who recently passed, was a huge sports fan from Chicago. He would have loved that map!
By land area - square miles - as in this map, the Seahawks have the largest territory...by virtue of Alaska.
“I read in a TV Guide article 25 years ago that an inordinate number of Alaskans go to Seattle Seahawk games.”
When I lived in AK in the ‘70s and ‘80s, we’d fly down to Seahawks games very often. Then we’d fly to HI for a few days. For a while, Western Airlines had a special deal called the “Hula Loop” to do the “triangle”. I think you paid a low price for a round trip to one destination, and could add the third destination for an extra $25.
Very good point
