Seattle Seahawks Win Super Bowl XLVIII – Sports Illustrated Cover – FINALLY Getting Some Respect?

SI-Seahawks

 

Oh, it was a “boring” game. “Real football fans were bored to tears.”  Or, “You call THAT a RIOT?” regarding the city-wide mob of happiness that swept over OUR CITY last night. Yeah, the frat boys and girls at U-Dub made a big, fat bonfire out of couches and mattresses.  (They probably saved the Seattle Health Department a trip by burning those nasty household furnishings, because ewww.)

There’s a great and hilarious post over on Deadspin.com (that I wish I had written), complete with photos from last night’s celebration.

I came across a video posted (and narrated) by our own Rock God, Chris Cornell about the city of Seattle and our Seahawks. Take a moment, won’t you? Oh, and I LOVE Soundgarden’sWave” used as the soundtrack.

Take, if you want a slice
If you want a piece
If it feels alright
Break, if you like the sound
If it gets you up
If it brings you downShare, if it makes you sleep
If it sets you free
If it helps you breathe
Don’t come over here
And piss on my gate
Save it just keep it
Off my wave

Cry, if you want to cry 

If it helps you see

If it clears your eyes

Hate, if you want to hate
If it keeps you safe
If it makes you brave

Pray, if you want to pray
If you like to kneel
If you like to lay

Don’t come over here
And piss on my gate
Save it just keep it
Off my wave

Keep it off my wave
Keep it off my wave
Keep it off my wave

My wave

Cry, if you want to cry
If it helps you see
If it clears your eyes

Hate, if you want to hate
If it keeps you safe
If it makes you brave

Take, if you want a slice
If you want a piece
If it feels alright

Don’t come over here
And piss on my gate
Save it just keep it
Off my wave

My wave.

OUR WAVE.
And by the way, It’s official: the Seattle Seahawks SUPER BOWL WIN was the most-watched television event in U.S. history, EVER. Boring? I took a Facebook poll. Seems that it was “boring” in the sense that Bronco fans–and Seattle haters–put all their Sunday Faith in their “savior”  Peyton Manning. Say with me (and Manning)…
MANNING-OHSHIT
…12 seconds into the game.
“OH SHIT!!”
I learned a new phrase today, thanks to my girl Honey: “Tax that ass” as in, “No one in Broncos Country seemed to realize is the Seahawks had their number and were about to tax that ass like they did most of their season.”
LOB-TheBest
What was that score again? 
sb-score
Don’t come over here
And piss on my gate
Save it just keep it
Off my wave
