"Steve Largent is OK"

I enjoy collecting political cards and especially players who became politicians. Steve Largent and I probably agree on nothing politically but I can't turn down a Largent dual jersey card. Steve was an Oklahoma Congressman [from the Tulsa area] from the Republican Revolution of 1994 until 2002 when he didn't seek re-election for his seat to run for Governor of Oklahoma. He ended up losing that election and hasn't run for office since.

Interesting fact: Steve's #80 is also the only player number retired by the Seahawks. [Although they did lamely retire the #12 for all the fans known as the 12th Man].
