The start of the NFL season is less than two months away, and although we’ll be sad to see summer go, we can’t wait for the opening kickoff. (And hopefully, the end of all the #deflategate talk.) Anyway, Boeing is ready for the season sooner than most, and once again they’re trussing up one of their birds with some football-inspired flair.
The fine folks over at USA Today are all over the new look slapped onto the side of a Boeing 747-8 freighter. This is the second time that Boeing, which long had its headquarters in Seattle, has sent an airplane into the hangar for a Seahawks-saluting paint job. The final result bears the team logo along with the number twelve on the tail; that’s a reference to the hometown crowd, which is often referred to the "twelfth man" during Seattle games.
You won’t be catching a ride on this plane anytime soon, but it does sound like Boeing has some promotional plans scheduled throughout the football season. Up first will be a flyover during the Boeing Seafair Air Show—right over Lake Washington—on August 2. After that, maybe they'll swing by the first home game at CenturyLink Field? Now that would get the twelfth man going!

Football fans, or more specifically Dallas Cowboys fans, have a new favorite watering hole to call home when to or through Dallas/Ft. Worth International Airport.
The latest addition to DFW's dining scene is the Dallas Cowboys Club, a full service restaurant now serving sports lovers in Terminal A.
The space, outfitted with plenty of football fan flourishes, has room for 80 hungry and thirsty fans — plus, of course, plenty of television screens to catch the game. The restaurant features a stadium shaped bar, and when it comes to food expect plenty of Texas-inspired grub: regional specialties, a little Tex-Mex, and of course plenty of wine, beer, and cocktails. How 'bout them Cowboys?!

Between the commercials, Katy Perry, and all those nachos there was a game to be played, and at the end of it all the New England Patriots came out the winners in this year’s Super Bowl. Now it’s time to plan a victory parade, as even the mayor of Boston chimed in that it’s time to “cue the duck boats.”
Fans of the Patriots—or just fans of massive parades and celebrations—need to make their way to Boston as soon as possible, as the city has announced that the victory parade is going to take place on
Tuesday, February 3 Wednesday, February 4. That means now is a great time to start faking an illness at work.
In case you missed it—the Super Bowl is kicking off this Sunday and airlines are announcing extra flights to get fans down to the desert to check out the game in Arizona.
Alaska Airlines often shares their fondness for the Seahawks, and they’re doing their part to get fans to the game. The carrier is adding two additional round-trip flights between Seattle and Phoenix, and as in the past those fans wearing the jersey of Russell Wilson—the Seahawks' quarterback—will score early boarding departing Seattle.

No matter how you prefer your footballs—that’s the only comment, we had to—the NFL is on the move this weekend as they begin to take over the desert. The Super Bowl is set to do its thing in Phoenix (actually, neighboring Glendale) on February 1, but there’s also a lot for fans to do before the main event and kickoff.
All the goodies are part of the NFL Experience, and things will run over at the Phoenix Convention Center starting tomorrow and running through February 1. The league is promising an interactive theme park of football this and that. Think interactive games, displays, football clinics for the little ones, and autograph sessions from your favorite players. Head right here for the schedule and the hours of operation.
Within the NFL Experience you’ll also find the Bridgestone Fan Gallery, and here you’ll be able to check out all the media madness—from Radio Row to all the other broadcasts.
For those lucky enough to be heading out to Arizona for this year’s big game, be sure to keep an eye out for any goodies left behind in your rental car. We’re not just talking about your phone, wallet, and belongings—but other more Super possessions as well.
The rental car lot is often home to forgotten treasures, but none is more valuable than the recent discovery inside one vehicle from the folks over at Enterprise. It wasn’t the rental agent this time, but it was actually an NFL agent who discovered it—after he was checking under the seats for his own goodies.
Another big weekend for football fans, as this Sunday your team might just be heading to the Super Bowl. Sure there are only four teams left, but even if one of them isn’t your favorite—you have to be pulling for one of them, no?
February 1 is the date for this year’s big game, and since you already have your tickets—now’s the time to start booking that airfare. We took a quick look this morning at what it’s going to cost you to fly to Phoenix. So if you’re confident of who will win you can finalize your itinerary before kickoff.

For football fanatics, this will be a nail-biter weekend as the NFL Divisional Playoffs do their thing on both Saturday and Sunday. This is the final weekend where there will be four games, as next week there will be only two—as teams play for a final shot to get to the Super Bowl on February 1.
If you're feeling good about your team making it to the big game in Arizona, then you may want to hit up Costco for tickets. Yes, Costco.
Aside from ten packs of socks and giant jars of mayonnaise, the bulk warehouse store has plenty of big event tickets. Just as in years past Costco is ready to get you to the game, but that only assumes that you have some deep pockets.

Over the last few years the National Football League has sent its players and propaganda overseas, as they have kicked off a few games over in London. This year is no different, and in fact they’ve held more games than in past years. We’re not quite ready for the London Silly Nannies just yet, but there is one more overseas game during the 2014 season—just in case you want to check it out.
The final game of the league’s international series takes place during Week 10, as one of the premier franchises—the Dallas Cowboys—face one of football’s less than premier franchises—the Jacksonville Jaguars. It’s November 9 at Wembley Stadium if you need to mark your calendar, and kickoff is set for 6pm local time—that’s around 1pm ET for those back at home.

If there are two teams—or at least fans—that dislike each other more than any other in the NFL it’s probably the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers. it doesn't help that the two teams play each other a couple of times each and every year, as they call the same division home.
One game is already in the books for this year, as the Ravens came out victorious after a big win at home early in the season. Now the teams play again in Pittsburgh during the big Sunday night game on November 2.

We’re still pretty early in the NFL season, but that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to start looking forward to the games—and weeks—ahead. That’s definitely the case when trying to catch one of the best rivalries over the last few years, as it’ll be Thanksgiving before you know it. That’s when the Seattle Seahawks travel to face the San Francisco 49ers.
Last year the two teams met in the conference championship game to decide who traveled to the Super Bowl, and in case you can’t remember—it was the Seahawks and they went on to win it all.
