Week In Review: The Seahawks Win Against All Odds And Eastern Washington Takes Home the Title

I think I can sum up this week in two words: Beast Mode. The Seahawks capped a fantastic week in Washington sports that included a perfect basketball record, an extraordinary coach leaving Stanford and an extraordinary quarterback staying at Stanford, Edgar Martinez getting denied for a Hall of Fame bid and... Oh yeah... A national championship.

Monday, Jan 3rd

Does your head hurt? I don't think you're alone. Today was the day after the celebration. Yes, that's right, your Seattle Seahawks just came off the biggest win of the year and are headed to playoff. SB Nation Seattle had you covered, so that you didn't have to think very hard during your "We're going to the playoffs" hangover:

Tuesday, Jan 4th

Ah, Tuesday... Remember Tuesday? The Carolina Panthers were hoping visions of Andrew Luck dancing in their heads would come true, Edgar Martinez was going through his day hopeful that the next morning would bring a call from the baseball Hall or Fame, and Abdul Gaddy was hopeful that he'd have a good game on Thursday. Remember Tuesday? Things looked so good on Tuesday.

The Eastern Washington Eagles had a game to play, and it was for all they marbles. They prepared by practicing for the Delaware Blue Hens, but apparently their fans prepared by writing silly raps.

Saturday, Jan 8th

No one gave the Seahawks a shot. They were the largest home underdogs in playoff history, but the game isn't played on paper. A full day of Washington basketball filled the schedule, but The Seahawks ended up taking center stage.
