Seattle Seahawks Visit Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football
STAMFORD, Conn. – September 17, 2015 – Tomorrow’s “Together We Make Football” segment on TODAY highlights Seattle Seahawks fans David and Sarah Webber.
Their story revolves around a twist of fate meeting in 2007, involving the Seahawks 2006 Wild Card playoff win and a little bit of luck – were it not for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo’s fumble and Seahawks safety Jordan Babineaux’s tackle, David and Sarah likely would never have met. They are now married with one child and a second on the way.
David, a massive Seahawks fan his entire life, had moved from Seattle to Wisconsin for work. Known more as Packers than 12th Man territory, David had no one to accompany him to Chicago to attend Seattle’s Divisional Playoff game against the Chicago Bears. David took to MySpace to find other Seahawks fans to attend the game with and ended up finding Sarah. Although she was back in Seattle, they had an instant connection and ended up meeting and marrying.
Sunday Night Football, television’s No. 1 primetime show, continues this Sunday, Sept. 20, when Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers (1-0) host Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks (0-1) in a 2014 NFC Championship rematch from Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET with Football Night in America, the most-watched studio show in sports.
