Stelton: Why it’s OK for Seahawks fans to root for rival Rams in Super Bowl

Maybe if the New England Patriots weren’t on the other side of the field.

In the attached video, 710 ESPN Seattle’s Bob Stelton explains why he has no problem rooting for the Rams as they try to beat the Evil Empire led by Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
