This is just hilarious. Cruel, but hilarious.
"Fox Football Daily," a show on Fox Sports 1, got some coaches and players from the Seattle Youth Football League together to watch last Sunday's NFC championship game, and then offered them $5,000 to help get them new equipment and fix their fields, but with a catch.
They had to watch the game against the 49ers in complete silence to collect the money.
This Seattle team is probably the best in franchise history and has a great chance to be the first to bring a Super Bowl back to the city. The Seahawks fans, the famous "12th Man," are among the best in the NFL and certainly among the loudest. And this game, with a Super Bowl berth on the line, came against the Seahawks' most hated rivals. So watching these men celebrate and suffer through this enormous Seahawks game without saying a word or making a sound was really good.
No spoilers here, but it's worth it to watch the entire video. And there's probably not a payment high enough to get these guys to do the same trick for Super Bowl XLVIII when the Seahawks take on the Broncos.
