After a high-scoring 43-8 Super Bowl XLVIII win on Sunday over Peyton Manning and AFC Champion Denver Broncos, the Seattle Seahawks will celebrate back home.
500,000 fans are expected to show up at the city’s downtown parade today at 11:00 AM PST to celebrate the teams first ever NFL championship in franchise history. The last time the city of Seattle won a championship in a professional sport was in 1979 when the Seattle SuperSonics won the NBA Finals.
It’s a celebration of many sorts for a city who lost the Sonics team in 2008, when they bolted for Oklahoma City.
Crowned as Super Bowl XLVIII champions, the Seahawks will be fitted for their new bling, a championship ring.
