In a few weeks, Seattle Seahawks fans will have something to look forward to that they haven't had to deal with for a quite a while. A Seahawks-less Super Bowl. This year's game will be the first in three years that won't feature Pete Carroll, Russell Wilson and the rest of the Hawks. It's a situation The 12th Men and Women weren't exactly prepared for. Throw in the 2006 Super Bowl appearance and the Seahawks have become the rare NFL franchise where going to the big game suddenly feels like commonplace. It's almost expected. That's something for Seahawks fans to feel some pride in, but it doesn't change the fact that their beloved Hawks will be sitting at home on February 7.
Sure, Seattle fans can watch the Super Bowl like most NFL fans. However the options aren't all that palate-cleansing. There's a good chance the New England Patriots, who defeated Seattle in last year's game, will be there. Either the Carolina Panthers, who beat Seattle last weekend, or the Arizona Cardinals, a bitter divisional rival, will take the Seahawks' place. Neither situation sounds appealing.
So, just in case Seahawks fans are looking for a way to escape the Super Bowl this year, Curbed compiled some options for ways to deal with your grief and work through the pain, at least in ways that don't include eating an entire plate of nachos in one sitting.
