Adventure with the Seahawks – the Superb Bowl!

February 3, 2014

seahawks superb bowl

The beauty of the Super Bowl game the Seahawks played against the Broncos was that it was, well, beautiful. The weather was not a factor, the officiating was fair, both sides had their first-line players … yet we resoundedly announced to the world that Seattle is not just a corner of the country up there somewhere by Alaska with no-count teams. 43-8 said it all. We are the World Champions! As Pete Carroll said, “Why not us?”

The 12th Man was recognized many times – the 12 flag was first out of the tunnel when the team was introduced.

12 flag 1After-game interviews with Russell Wilson, Richard Sherman and ALL of the Seahawks touted the support of the city – the 12th Man – as essential to the winning season. 

Jessi and Mike BonMy friends who were in the MetLife 200 level seats said they were not allowed to stand up – but they yelled long and loud! (People in front of them complained to the ushers, but were told my friends could be as loud as they wanted!) Twelve seconds into the game the score was 2-0. Twelve seconds into the second half Percy Harvin’s 87 yard kick return and Steven Hauschka’s extra point put us at 29-0. You figure it out 🙂

The city is estatic. The Space Needle went into overdrive, shooting off fireworks after each touchdown.

Fireworks were heard and seen in neighborhoods everywhere at the game’s winning end.

Today news desks are monitoring the flight track of the Seahawks plane as it comes home. I will watch the members of the youngest winning team in Super Bowl history as they deplane – the average age is 26.2! I have already made hotel reservations for Superbowl XLIX in Phoenix. I just have a feeling …

 It is surreal, it is uniting, and it is fun!!! GO HAWKS!!
