    WE DID IT! Seattle takes home Lombardi Trophy in 1st ever Super Bowl win!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Seattle resident Tim Durkan says the city was engrossed with excitement even before the Seahawks big Super Bowl win on February 2. 'I’m not sure any of us doubted the Hawks would win, but to completely dominate in what fans here call "Beast Mode" for the entire game was amazing,' he said. He captured these photos while watching and celebrating the game at a local Irish pub in the city and says it almost felt dream-like trying to capture decent photos after the huge victory. 'As a boy, I had vivid memories of our beloved Super Sonics winning the 1979 World Championship and just how proud I felt of our city,' he explained. 'It had been so very long here since the entire Pacific Northwest had that much to cheer about, but it was all worth the wait.'
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    In what is sure to be remembered as a truly historic moment for the entire Pacific NW (sports or otherwise) the Seattle Seahawks were victorious over the Denver Broncos today in Super Bowl XLVIII by a score of 43-8.


    For the many who couldn't make it to New Jersey in person, devoted fans packed into bars surrounding the team’s home stadium in the raucous neighborhood of Pioneer Square. In no other neighborhood would you find more electricity and excitement than right here across the street from the Hawk’s CenturyLink Field. From inside the legendary Irish Pub FX McRory's to the crowded and rowdy Central Tavern blocks away - the collective cheers of Seattle’s famed “12th Man” would be heard around the world tonight!


    Congratulations to the both the Denver Broncos for all that they achieved during the regular season and playoffs and to the Seattle Seahawks for winning their very first Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl 48! It’s been a long time coming baby - THANK YOU SEAHAWKS!
