Seattle finally has a championship. After 35 years of major sports seasons ending in disappointment, teams moving away, and overall mediocracy, Seattle has a reason to celebrate. The Seahawks capped off an unbelievably impressive season with an even more unbelievably boring Super Bowl. That is - if you weren't rooting for Seattle. The last time a Seattle team hoisted a trophy at the end of a season was in 1979 when the Supersonics beat the Bullets to win the NBA finals, unless you include the WNBA's Seattle Storm who won in 2004 and 2010. But we don't.
This has been a city starving for a reason to party, and a 2014 Super Bowl championship may usher in a new era of Seattle sports. An era where the fans are given reasons to party.
