Today's topic is about football, but more specifically, about the Seattle Seahawks. Look them up. As a hometown team that we, on the podcast, are big fans of, and at the time of this episode, we heard some big news that shook the city the past weekend. All in the entertainment sense. And today's episode is taking us on a light hearted route. In Seahawk news, the team's quarterback, star player, and probably unanimously the favorite player on the team by fans, has been traded to another team after playing in Seattle for the past decade or so. In previous episodes, we've talked extensively with friends about how sport figures, or even comic characters, can spark inspiration for us. The star quarterback of the Seahawks, Russell Wilson, could be seen as a hero for many sports viewers. Now that he is leaving to play for another team, and also if you paid just enough attention to sports media, you have people on all sides of the coin either wishing him well at his new team, or criticizing him for being disloyal to the team that he played for first. In this episode, it won't all be about football and Russell Wilson, but more about how we view our attachment to heroes in all forms.
