It's a particularly fun time of year right now in Seattle, with the Seahawks getting set to head into the last round of the NFL playoffs. This kind of event really brings the city together, in support of not just the football team, but a mutual respect and pride in our city. So much so in fact, that the city turns blue and green, the colours of the Seahawks.
On the back of last year's superbowl win, there's a very real energy this time around as the Seahawks look to go back to back. I explored that energy last year after the Superbowl win, in my story The Spirit of Seattle, and there are definite signs of that exact spirit coming back over the town this weekend. It's a great time to be in Seattle.
