YouNews Hawkcited! (New) Hawkcited!
Ten days ago, Douglas Walthers and Sheila Shannon put their creative heads together and wrote a bouncy new song for Seahawks fan "Hawkcited" - which was based on Doug asking Sheila about the Superbowl and saying "So, are you 'Hawk-cited?" Within ten days, not only was a song written and produced with the help of world class Bear Creek Recording Studio, but then Jerry Streeter at Blue Stellar Productions jumped in - and a music video was created! The story of how this video came to be is just another story of how devoted Seattle Seahawk Fans are to their team!
