From the hilarious to the surreal, from inside the huddle to inside the broadcast booth, 28-year Seattle Seahawks veteran Steve Raible takes fans to places they never knew existed. Readers have the chance to laugh along as Jack Patera trades Andre Hines to the Dolphins after warning Don Shula that a worse offensive lineman never existed. To marvel as Raiders legend John Matuszak becomes Seattle's offensive coordinator during the final minutes of the Seahawks' blowout win. To come along with Steve Largent as the Hall of Famer obliterates Broncos safety Mike Harden in the ultimate payback. To eavesdrop as Chuck Knox tells his staff to update their resumes after the team drafted Dan McGwire. And to scarf down shrimp platters with Wayne Cody in the parking lot at Jack Murphy Stadium--during the game.
