Seahawks: A 12’s heartfelt thanks to her team for thawing Seattle’s deep freeze

BY MELISSA PERINCHERIL Dear Seattle, If you’re a die-hard, a bandwagon, a red wagon or a Volkswagen, I don’t care. Thank you for participating and making the experience of being a Seattleite, and a Washingtonian, even better.
