So you think you're a Seattle Seahawks fan, huh? Or at least that's what you're calling yourself this month.
We know you better than you think. You brag about how you've followed the team since the days of Dave Krieg and Steve Largent, but the reality is that you spent the entire decade of the '90s wrapped up in indifference.
So we've figured out a way to separate the diehards from those of you who are simply on the Seahawks bandwagon because it's the latest cool thing to do.
Be as honest as you can. And remember: just because you're a bandwagon fan doesn't mean the Seahawks don't want you around.
If it weren't for fair-weather fans, Seattle might not have any fans at all.
