On Monday, I wore team colors to show my love for the Seahawks. I worked at games for several years and always loved the energy. Our home stadium is vibrant. Nothing beats serving up steaming hot chocolate with whipped cream to excited fan.
Even though the result looked inevitable to many, I didn't breathe easy until the end. I worked for the Seahawks during the season of their last Superbowl game (and the Mariners during all their hot/cold seasons), and I know how easily Seattle sports teams can choke.
I know the game was boring for some. As a Seattle sports fan, I'm just glad my team showed up ready to play. The Broncos can't say the same, sadly. That first play resulting in a safety really seemed to rattle the whole team. Still, I don't think this detracts from Seattle. They played an A game and deserved the win.
I may live far from home, but Seattle is still in my heart. Congrats to the superb players.
