The 5th of February 2014 was a great day to be in Seattle! The Seattle Seahawks won the Superbowl 48 and were greeted to 750,000 fans who lined the streets (and even scaled the buildings) to cheer on the team.
Even though it took us nearly an hour to board the Sounder train, where we were then crushed like sardines. But, there was chanting and high spirits throughout the train which made the journey a great prelude to what was next to come. The photo below was indeed photo bombed haha
So I arrived in Seattle with my two lovely ladies, the sun beamed on our faces and people were already lining the streets….and drinking. I was very much looking forward to a breakfast burrito not increasing my alcohol content at 10:00am 🙂
As time quickly ran on we decided to brace the cold weather and get a good spot on 2nd Avenue. The atmosphere was so incredible. Century Link field was already to its maximum capacity for the Award Ceremony and with 750,000 in Seattle the noise the ricocheted off the skyscrapers.
So when the football players made their way towards us in the Duck Trucks you can imagine the volume of the “12th man”! It was intoxicating and I liked it 😀 One of the best parts was how nice and respectful everyone was of each other.
Unfortunately my videos will not upload but I got some great photos off of the Seahawks website which also has some amazing videos taken by the players.
