Snow Daze

Published on December 26, 2008 by     Seahawk Fanatic

This final week of the regular season is unlike any other we’ve seen this year. Christmas falls in the middle of the week and snow seems to fall just about every day.

This final week of the regular season is unlike any other we’ve seen this year.  Christmas falls in the middle of the week and snow seems to fall just about every day. Driving in the snow presents a challenge for some of the players especially the guys from the south.

Linebacker Leroy Hill is from Haddock, Georgia. “I hate the snow, I don’t care if I ever see it again,” said a smiling Hill in the locker room Tuesday. “I live up on a hill and it’s tough getting around, I can’t wait for it to melt.”

Hill was one of several players who hitched a ride to work with Mo Kelly, Director of player development. Kelly is also from the south but has an advantage over some of the players. “They’ve got to be at practice, I don’t want them to get fined, so I go pick them up. I’m not a very good snow driver either but I have a four wheel drive.”

Wide receiver Courtney Taylor grew up in Carrolton, Alabama and was one of the players who rode with Mo Kelly to work Tuesday. “Actually I have an Avalanche but it’s two wheel drive. I bought it in the south and it didn’t come with four wheel drive.” When I reminded him that his driver Mo Kelly was also from the south and not an experienced snow driver, Taylor smiled and said, “I needed a ride to work, I didn’t want to get fined so as far as I’m concerned he’s the best driver in the world, Matt Hasselbeck is from Westwood, Massachusetts and says he has no trouble in the winter weather when he’s back east. “Driving in the snow is no problem, but driving on ice is another story, especially here where they never sand or salt the roads.”

Seneca Wallace is from Sacramento, California where it only snowed once in his entire childhood. “I’ve got an 04’ Yukon Denali but I made the mistake of putting really big expensive rims on it and they’re terrible in the snow.” When asked who is the worst snow driver on the team Wallace volunteered the name Kelly Jennings. Jennings didn’t understand how he got the title. “I drive a Range Rover Sport, I’ve actually gotten used to it, being from Florida I didn’t see any snow as a kid so it’s really exciting for me.”

Wallace confirms that it’s exciting for Jennings.  “Deion  (Branch) told me Kelly picked him up and drove 60 miles an hour on the back roads.”

The best advice came from  Bobby Engram who was born in South Carolina but spent 20 years in Pennsylvania. “If you have a four wheel drive, down shift and go down the hills slowly, do not use the brakes and you’ll be fine.”

Playing in the snow is obviously more fun for these guys than driving in the snow. This Sunday in Arizona they won’t have to worry about either one.
