It’s good to be a Seahawk, but not every Seahawk is created equally.
That’s what defensive end Michael Bennett found out when he couldn’t get a table at an exclusive restaurant the day after returning a fumble for a touchdown.
So thinking as quickly on his feet as when he scooped up a loose ball and rambled to the end zone, he called back and told them he was quarterback Russell Wilson.
“I called them back a few minutes later,” Bennett told 710 ESPN, via Terry Blount of ESPN.com. “I said, ‘Hey, this is Russell Wilson. I’ll be attending your restaurant today. Do you have any tables?‘
“And she was like, ‘Yes! We can make a table for you! You were 22-for-30 the other night, 130 quarterback rating!’ She knew every stat.”
Bennett said he still got the star treatment when he showed up and they realized he was not, in fact, the quarterback, enjoying the VIP treatment.
Of course, that just means that when Wilson goes out to eat, he’s going to have to start telling people he’s Robinson Cano, who just signed a $240 million deal with the Mariners.
