I feel like we are finding ourselves in this once in a lifetime (Ok maybe a couple times if you are lucky) moment; Our team, The Seahawks, in our adopted city, Seattle, is in the Superbowl!
It reminds me of when I was a kid in the 80’s, 1984 to be exact, when the Kansas City Royals won the World Series. It was the most I’d ever known about a full roster of players on any team, ever. Fast forward 20+ years, and thousands of miles, this Northwestern city and all the fans, otherwise known as the 12th Man (you know, broken world record for loudest fans in a stadium),
are no less than electrified.
Being at the Championship game was pretty surreal, the whole atmosphere is just plain infectious. Civic pride is at an all-time high.
This made of Oyster shells, of course!
The kids are sooo into it.
Every week since the playoffs began has been “Seahawk Friday” at their school–where they usually wear uniforms.
And oh the things these kids know. About Marshawn Lynch and his love for Skittles… and Wilson and the Phish song…and the Macklemore (after all, “this is our moment and the ceiling can’t hold us…”)
Signage is found everywhere and the excitement is purely palpable.
I definitely couldn’t resist a fan-icure and will continue the spirit on through Sunday…
and after! GO SEAHAWKS!
