    Seahawks Super Bowl Champions Sudoku Puzzle

    Yes, I am a Seattle Seahawks fan. I did not start that way. I moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1982 and in the eighties I was a San Francisco 49's fan (Joe Montana, Jerry Rice and all). But with time, and with the coming of Mike Holmgren to Seattle, I was turned (possibly by some fanged 12th Man female Seattle Seahawks vampiress,).

    Last night's game was the most fun I had watching a sports event. The Seahawks dominated the Broncos to the point of embarrassment. How dominant where the Seahawks? In last night's Super Bowl game, the Denver Bronco's offense, the most prolific offense in NFL history having scored the most points and the most touchdowns in a season of any NFL team ever, scored fewer points (8) than the Seattle Seahawks defense (9). If the Seahawks offense or special teams did not score a single point, the Seahawks would still have won!

    But that is not what is most impressive about the Seahawks performance yesterday. What is most impressive is that the team played up to its full potential on the biggest and most intimidating stage. History of the Super Bowl, history of sports, shows that the best don't always win at the end. Those that play the best at that particular time, win at the end. It is not enough to be great, you have to play great when it matters. While that seems obvious, it doesn't always happen. (I think that we will the example of this in this years Winter Olympics.)

    The Seahawks were the best team in the NFL this season and they played the best football in the post-season and they are the Super Bowl Champions. Things are not always "right" with the world, but last night's crowning of the Super Bowl champions was right.

    I was so excited by the win that I decided to celebrate it my own way by creating special Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl Champions Sudoku. These are my Isogram Sudoku puzzles that use the letters from the words "Superbowl" and "Champions". The rules of the regular numeric sudoku apply to the Isogram Sudoku. The one slight but meaningful difference is that the word from which each puzzle is created is spelled in-line once in puzzle, either horizontally or vertically.
