    So this is Alex, and he's a hardcore Seahawks fan. He's also the fortunate recipient of a pretty sweet gift from the team: a signed helmet. Alex is overcome with emotion, exactly the way the rest of you ungrateful types ought to be when you get gifts.

    The home video is VERY long and VERY home-video-ey; the good stuff starts at about the 2:30 mark, but we've excerpted it right here for you:

    Congrats to Alex, and nice work, Seahawks. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays, everyone.
