The Seahawks finally got their first win of the year on Sunday behind the arms of their number one superfan, Bam Bam. If you're not familiar with Bam Bam, he stands in the front row directly behind the south goal post. He has super long brown hair and looks like the unholy love child of Eddie Vedder and Sasquatch (see below), making him the perfect embodiment of a Seahawks fan. Bam Bam is so named because before defensive plays he thumps the padding below his seat to pump up the crowd. According to Bam Bam, "I started pounding the pad the first season we were in the new stadium. The crowd was quiet and lethargic, and I felt like it needed something. So I leaned over and started hitting the pad with one hand, mostly out of frustration. Then my buddy told me to use two hands. [nice work, buddy] It's kind of taken off from there." Bam Bam's bamming was strangely absent during the 49ers game, and as a result the Seahawks' defense lost rhythm and ultimately focus, causing them to give up too many crucial big plays. However, this week he was back in full force and could be heard clearly before most defensive plays. The Rams never scored a touchdown in his endzone. He was even joined by some other guy next to him doing a half Nate Burleson hawk flap-half Bam Bam bam. Maybe this other guy is the buddy Bam Bam mentions in his quote. In the future, I think it could be productive to have the whole front row of the stadium bamming in unison with the aid of Blue Thunder. I also think Bam Bam should bite into a raw salmon right before kickoff, then throw the carcass at the visiting team, just like Sasquatch or Eddie Vedder would do. He looks like he could do that no problem.
