View Full Version : Earthquake in Seattle during Wild Card Matchup

01-10-2011, 05:30 PM
Vidale said a seismic monitoring station located about 100 yards west of the stadium registered seismic activity during Lynch's run. The shaking was most intense during a 30-second stretch about the time Lynch broke free from the line of scrimmage, finished off his touchdown and celebrated in the end zone with his teammates.

After that, Vidale said, the shaking died down, but it took about a minute for the shaking to completely fade away.

This was the first time Vidale has taken a look at the monitoring station near the stadium. He said the station that picked up the tremors is mostly concerned with monitoring the two-level viaduct highway that runs along the Seattle waterfront and the seawall.

Asked if he would be watching in the future to see if there is activity during Seahawks games, Vidale was simply wanting more team success.

"Well, I hope there are some more playoff games to watch," he said.

Sea-Chicken fans know how to literaly Rock the House, or maybe their OC Lex Luthor threated the officials by dropping a Kryptonite crystal in the ocean, thus making seismic activity.

That is crazy. You know you have a good fanbase when they can LITERALLY make the ground shake. Seattle's "12th Man" is the real deal!

Heard about it Sunday, read about early yesterday.
Was gonna post it, forgot too, oh well.

The funny thing is, is that it happen when Marshall was running, so there was a joke that them breaking the tackles of the Saints caused the earthquake.
