Seattle Erupts at Super Bowl Parade
I have covered a large variety of major events all over the world in the last 35 years of my photo journalism career, but I have never witnessed anything like this. On Wednesday a sea of blue and green 12th Men flooded the streets of Seattle to welcome home our Seahawk champions and the Vince Lombardi Trophy. I have never been a part of such an extraordinary event that brought together a highly diverse crowd of individuals from all corners of the state. The energy was absolutely electrifying with close to 1 million of the world’s most avid fans cheering on our hometown heroes. The result was an incredible sense of community that not many people ever get to experience in a lifetime. You don’t have to be a football to know that this is the biggest thing to ever happen to the city of Seattle. It has been a long time waiting to bring another major professional sports championship to the Emerald city and it was a proud day to be a Seattlelite. I have put together 12 photos from Seahawks Super bowl rally to commemorate the 12th man. Super bowl XLVIII here we come, go Seahawks!
