Want to know how intense the 49ers/Seahawks rivalry has gotten in the last year or so? Just read this letter that a 6-year-old San Francisco fan wrote for the Seahawks recently:
If you can't read it, it says: "SEAHAWKS, A SEA SERPENT IS WATCHING THE GAME. IF YOU WIN, IT WILL EAT THE FANS AND EAT YOU. A VIRUS WILL COME INTO YOUR THROAT AND GIVE YOU THE FLU. YOU'LL PROBABLY NEED A FLU SHOT AT FRED MEYER. NO SEAHAWKS BEYOND THIS POINT."
This letter is: A) Just about the cutest thing that we've ever seen a 6-year-old write, and B) Just about the most threatening thing that we've ever seen a 6-year-old write. Also, it makes us really hope and wish and pray that the Niners meet up with the Seahawks in the playoffs. That playoff game would obviously be epicâ€”sea serpents and all.
