So I was at Century Link on Saturday night reviewing the Kenny Chesney "No Shoes Nation" Tour for MSN. (Note: Despite the title, most people wore shoes, unless flip-flops and boots are for whatever reason not considered shoes.) We were kind of expecting something Seahawks-related to happen after we learned that Chesney had "worked out" with the Seahawks on Friday afternoon.* Sure enough, before Chesney's "The Boys Of Fall," a well-dressed Russell Wilson came out to sign a Seahawks helmet and wave to the crowd.
During the encore of "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy," a fan threw a Wilson jersey on stage for Chesney to sign. Chesney beckoned Wilson to come out and sign it as well, which he did:
In addition, where I was standing several other Seahawks were milling about. I could tell they were Seahawks because they were all standing together, and were twice the size of everyone else. The only one I recognized on sight was Breno Giocomini, not just because I knew his face, but also because when I saw him I had a sudden urge to throw a yellow flag and call a false start.
Anyway, that's my report. I used to write about football, now I'm doing a goddamn society column. Carry on.
*(According to a People.com item, Chesney "pick(ed) up a few pointers from wide receivers Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice." Pointers? Why? Is he going to fill the Seahawks' needs at receiver immediately, or are they just going to put him on the practice squad to start out? What "pointers" does a 45-year-old country musician need to... ahhh, I'm overthinking this, aren't I? Again.)
