Seahawks fan has prosthetic eye with team's logo

There are sports fans, and then there are sports fans who support their team with a level of dedication that leaves you in awe.
Bill VandenBush is the latter. VandenBush lost his right eye and vocal cords in a terrible explosion in Vietnam, but he makes the best of it. Namely, by using a prosthetic eye with his favorite team's logo in the pupil.
VandenBush has been a diehard Seattle Seahawks fan since they became an NFL expansion team in 1976. He told KIRO TV that the eye was a 10th anniversary present from his wife. He has another prosthetic that looks like a normal eye, so this one is for "special occasions."
"Every game I'll have it in, or any gathering with Seahawks fans present," VandenBush said.
Beyond using his disability to show off his fandom, VandenBush has a wonderful outlook on the situation in general.
"I believe that even though I have been totally disabled, I try to have a good time with it," VandenBush said. "With the voice and eye, I try to make the best of it. You have to play the cards you're dealt. I volunteered to go to Vietnam, this is what happened, I have to live with it. I could be bitter and angry, or I can just have a good time with it."
