Seattle Seahawks - 2014 Super Bowl Champions

This article was originally written as a review of the Seattle Seahawks on my Yelp page which you can find HERE. A lot of people really liked it so I figured I would turn it into a full blown blog post on my website.

For as long as I can remember, the Seahawks have been a part of my life, sometimes more than others but always there. From the early days that featured names like Zorn, Largent, Krieg, and Warner to the current crop of young talent like Wilson, Lynch, Sherman, and Thomas, no other organization in the city has been able to draw the level of passion out of its fan base better than Seattle's own NFL franchise.
