The cool story behind Earl Thomas’s fancy Russian cap (Shutdown Corner)

Injured Seahawk Earl Thomas stalked the sidelines Saturday night as Seattle throttled the Detroit Lions, and he looked damn fine doing so. The Seattle Times brings us the story of Thomas’s cap, which reads, in Cyrillic: “Restricted Air Space. Restricted by Earl Thomas.” It was a gift from a group of Seahawks fans calling themselves the “Russian Sea Hawkers,” scattered across nations including Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Germany and the Czech Republic, fans who gather via social media to listen to and watch Seahawks games in the middle of the night.
