All of Seattle was abuzz with euphoria over the team’s first-ever Super Bowl title as the World Champion Seahawks parade route began near the Space Needle and ended up at Century Link Field, where the 12th Man got to revel in a spirited Seahawks championship ceremony.
Seahawks QB Russell Wilson proclaimed to over 700,000 roaring fans, “Our plan is to win another one for you next year!”
With the kind of shutdown defense that lowered the boom on the Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII, that assertion seems pretty legitimate.
Mighty congratulations to the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.
