What do we do now? How do we act? How do we put into words this feeling of pride we share, the joy we share? WE. All of us. We have a piece of this. It’s ours too. Even the bags of skittles Marshawn Lynch threw to the crowd lining the streets of Seattle at the first ever Victory Parade for the this team, and for our city.
“This is our city. We’re so happy, “ said Tameka Ogletree, who brought her 8-month-old daughter Olivia to the parade. “I had to bring her. It’s history.”
Imagine this, that we no longer have to IMAGINE that, that feeling of bliss that comes to us when we get something we want so bad. We have it now. We’re Super Bowl champs. It’s real, this pinch ourselves to make sure it’s real moment. We’re feeling it. And it feels so good.
So what do we do now? We celebrate, like we did today, as we are reminded of that question Russell Wilson asked his teammates during this unforgettable season: "Why not us?"
