Seattle Mariners star Kyle Seager decided to retire after a remarkable career in the MLB as a third baseman. Another athlete who represents the city of Seattle, but for the NFL, is Russell Wilson. And since the city of Seattle is like a big family, Russell Wilson, the Seattle Seahawks star quarterback and an equally important member of this family, took to Twitter to congratulate the 34-year-old on his retirement.

This season could be a lesson for the Russell Wilson side. They could use this lesson to culminate their performance next season. But as far as Wilson is concerned, he will take his competitiveness and durability to the next level since he is one of the most hard-working players in the NFL.

To sum it up, it was surely not the best year for the city of Seattle. Even though they bid farewell to one of their best basemen in MLB and failed to make the playoffs in the NFL, they would still support their athletes with the same zest and enthusiasm as they did before.
