Here’s a piece of sports trivia for the day- on June 4, 1974, the NFL awarded Seattle an expansion franchise, with the Nordstrom family as majority owners. It wasn’t until about a year later the team had a name- the Seahawks- which was suggested as part of a public naming contest. The Seattle Seahawks played their first regular season game against the St. Louis Cardinals in 1976.
