Like most of you living in Seattle I was damn sure that the Seahawks were going to bring home another trophy. But, alas, they were defeated by the Patriots.
I watched the game with a group of amazing people at Sport Restaurant and Bar next to the Space Needle. There were highs and lows throughout the entire game, not to mention the sporadic showering of Skittles. Even though the Seahawks didn’t win they performed incredibly well and demonstrated great sportsmanship. From Pete’s comments and the players shaking the hands of the competitors, the Seahawks proved they were a team with class. They are true role models!
Even with the poor play that ultimately lost the Hawks their game, as I walked down 1st Avenue I could still hear everyone chanting SEAHAWKS! They had played well throughout the whole season and the 12th Man are still in awe of them.
As I reflect on the past year that I’ve been in Seattle I’ve loved the community that I’ve become involved in. The Seahawks are definitely part of that experience and I couldn’t be more proud of them!
Unless you’ve been out of the country then you must of heard the news that the Seahawks are going to the Superbowl for the second time in a row! Seattle is buzzing with excitement and I’m so happy to be living within it.
To celebrate this monstrous occasion I’ve decided to blog about how Seattle businesses are getting involved.
Firstly, and probably the best, KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn is offering a free bag of their #BeastCorn if you go into any of their Seattle stores dressed in your Seahawks gear. This stuff is delicious and the promo is only on today and next Friday so grab some before it all disappears.
Papa John’s is the official pizza of the NFL so of course they’re making some noise with their 50% off total pizza purchase! That’s insane!
There has also been a huge increase in charitable donations as a result of the Seahawks winning. One the best ones I’ve seen is with Russell Investments. Every time Russell Wilson runs or passes the ball in for a touchdown this great company will donate $3000 to charity. Awesome!
If you’re lucky enough to be going to the Superbowl game in Arizona then check out PrimeSport who are offering VIP and exclusive packages for Seahawk fans. If you’re going to go big then this company can make it the best experience for you.
Of course Starbucks is getting involved! If you visit a selected Starbucks you can have exclusive content including photo and video messages sent directly to your phone from the Seahawks Mobile App which they call the ‘Legion of Brew’. Throughout the past two years Starbucks and Seattle coffee lovers have raised $100,000 for the ‘A Better Seattle’ initiative. Now that’s something to celebrate!
Come on Seahawks bring home another trophy so Seattle can beat last year’s 700,000 attendees to last year’s street party!
