This wasn't an eartquake. There was no disturbance of the ground. They merely stomped enough to get a reading a reading on the seismology charts.

Not sure I'd wanna toy with Mother Nature like that. She has a way of getting even.

So one of two things. Either they are lying because none of the other teams generate earthquakes at their home stadiums, or Seattle is located on some of the most unstable ground on earth which would have me running far away. Considering how Seattle fans have so poorly adapted to a couple of winning seasons for the first time in their history, karma says they will end up triggering an earthquake that will swallow them whole.

@d434478, After living in both Seattle and Minneapolis I can honestly say, I'd rather die too young in Seattle in the"big one" or from Fukushima radiation than live a long boring life in Minneapolis/Saint Paul. It's that much cooler in Seatown. Plus the nightlife is better, it's super business friendly the people are far more cosmopolitan, no income tax, the right to siw is legal, GM food will be labeled soon, weather is better, waaay better demographics and to top it all off marijuana is legal!!

@speedbum25, ha ha Hawks crushed the hapless Vikings. The funniest part is, nobody in the city of Seattle even cares about football! It's all rednecks from Lacy, Marysville, Enumclaw, Auburn coming into Seattle. The people who live in Seatown are way to busy with sailing and the arts and making tons of money to care about football, -said a a Seattle native who lived his whole life there except for 2 horrible years in Miinecrapolis.
