We’re basking in the sun (as if Seattle had any this time of year.) The Seahawks’ decisive win over Denver is owed by and large to the defense and special teams, yeah?
Noting that the Hawks lost to Pittsburgh in 2006 in the team’s only other Super Bowl appearance, one fan said:

“In ’06 we were cheated … this is making up for ’06. The city needed this.”.

Are you ready for a parade Wednesday? Check back for details as we learn more about it.

And in other news, as if there is any …

The weather: While the Seahawks’ Super Bowl win will be the hot topic for days to come, temperatures over the next few days are expected to be cold.  Lows tomorrow through Friday around here will be in the upper teens or low 20s. Yikes.

The man arrested in connection with the fire that was set in the Neighbours nightclub is rather odd, say neighbors.

A drink called “Date Grape?” Come on now. A Spokane bar owner has named a drink “Date Grape Koolaid.” The name of the drink is simply a play on words, “It tastes grape,” Daiquiri Factory owner Jamie Pendleton tells KXLY. About 100 people demonstrated outside the bar Saturday because the drink’s name sounds like “date rape.”
