Welcoming Home Champions

It was a cold and brisky Wednesday afternoon in downtown Seattle, that didn't stop nearly one million seahawk fans from flooding the streets with blue and neon green.

Fans have been camped out since late last night, waiting for the chance to welcome back the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.

"It's awesome, I'm excited for the parade, it's gonna be pretty cool," said Alek Arpe.

For locals from our area, it's an energy they say they've felt like none other.

"On a scale of 1-10, it's 1,000," said Zach Luchsinger, "The streets are just littered with people, it's a Wednesday morning, kids are down here, everybody's down here having a good time and just getting wild."

The team made their way through the city en route to Century Link field.

Fans screaming at the top of their lungs "MVP" at linebacker Malcolm Smith.

It was as if 38 years of frustration and missed opportunities finally reached it's climax this afternoon.

"I shed a tear on Sunday for my boys, it was so wild," said Brad Johnson.

Long time fans say the streets haven't been this crowded since the 1979 Seattle Supersonics won the NBA Finals.

Now, more than 25 years later, these streets are crowded once again same amount of energy.

"People have been waiting for a championship here, we have die hard fans, probably the best in all of sports so they deserve it," said Luchsinger.

"To be there with our boys, just to be there for support, 12th Man as you guys can see out here; we're number one, we're number one in the world right now, that's huge for us, seattle, the city, this is our state, this is our country right now," said Johnson.
