A Seahawks fan's account of the journey to Super Bowl Championship

Through the eyes of a 12: Seahawks bring home the Lombardi

Prologue:

I won't go into my many years as a Seahawks fan prior to the summer of 2012, as that would require a traditional publisher, I'm sure.

That summer, my family and I took a cross-country trip on transfer from Florida back home to Washington State. On this trip, we made a stop off at the Pro Football Hall Of Fame. This wasn't a negotiable detour; Cortez Kennedy had just been inducted, and although our trip was too late to enjoy the enshrinement ceremony, as someone who was able to cheer him on in person and had the good fortune to meet him on the sideline in the Seahawks last game in the Kingdome, I wanted at least to be some small part of welcoming him to Canton...and I really wanted to see his bust up close and personal.

(Even the kiddo couldn't contain her excitement.)
 
While we were there, we had fun checking out the entire museum, and even took part in designing our own Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl ring. After the second 7-9 season in a row, it was a bit of a stretch, I'll admit. But as fans who were given the option to dream and had just purchased season tickets, how could we resist?

(Okay so this one actually went to the Ravens, but it gets the point across.)

Fast-forward through a somewhat surprisingly successful season that ended on a heartbreaker in Atlanta, and there was a very large, very real feeling of hope. For the first time in my life as a Seahawks fan, I thought, "wow! This team could win a Super Bowl!" (Even the 2005 team felt like more of a 'wishful thinking' experience than anything from beginning to end.)

All too often when I read a person's travel story, I get kind of bored and jump to the end.  Not so.  I read every single word, looked at every picture (again, as I had seen many of them) and I still almost choked up.  So very glad you got to experience this, and that you shared it with us!! Wonderful, awesome, INCREDIBLE!!!!

I hope you make one of those photo books. Takes FOREVER, but totally worth it.

Oh, I hadn't even thought of doing one of those! What a great idea, thanks! I have a coupon for one, I think...I need to get on that.
