SEATTLE, Wash. (CBS4)– If there was a battle for which fans were more dedicated, Seattle and Denver would be in a tight race, so it’s only appropriate that the two teams will face off in Super Bowl.
CBS4 reporter Stan Bush traveled to Seattle to catch the vibe there this week and found that there is a sense of pride among many fans there. There’s also a sense of envy.
Denver has already won two Super Bowls and Seattle has only been to one Super Bowl prior to this season.
That fact isn’t keeping the fans from expressing their dedication, though.
“The fans are hard core,” said one Seahawks fan.
“I root for the Seahawks all the way,” said another.
“Denver’s going down,” said yet another Seahawks fan.
Bush found that Seahawks logos and colors are everywhere in the city. And he also said he was almost a little bit disappointed that no one had any hostility when they found out he was a reporter from Denver. Everyone was very polite.
It’s not just the physical evidence of team pride: “The electricity is at its highest voltage it’s ever been in town,” said a Seattle resident.
“Mr. Peyton Manning, ‘Omaha, Omaha, Omaha,’ ” said one Seahawks fan. “No Omaha here.”
The Broncos will play the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
