Victory scenes, including West Seattle Seahawks fans’ celebrations

Super Bowl countdown is on! But first, tonight: Some of the photos (etc.) we’ve received since The Big Win. First, intrepid fans waded into Puget Sound to celebrate:

Thanks to Mark for that photo. Next one’s from Amy:

Amy says, “Finnegan from Gatewood Hill brought good luck to the Hawks in the 4th quarter!!” Meantime, two West Seattleites snapped themselves during a historic moment at the CLink:

Gary Potter (left) e-mailed the photo, captioning it, “Josh Sutton snaps a selfie after the final TD in OT!!!!”

Also notable today, the weather. Trileigh Tucker caught video of the brief ice-pellet shower:

Trileigh captioned it “Hailquake“; we’ve also heard it dubbed the “Hail Mary” moment! It followed – after a bit of a time gap – one burst of thunder that coincided with the Seahawks’ big comeback. Earlier, John Bartell caught this sunbreak with a rainbow (promise of victory?):

Last but not at all least – this isn’t in West Seattle but does have a local link. Jim Winder, mastermind of the West Seattle Lights/Helmstetler Family Christmas Spectacular, has a light show in Maple Valley and says it’s 100 percent Seahawks-themed, continuing nightly through the Super Bowl. He shared this clip of “Hawktown Funk”:

So now we have two weeks of pre-Super Bowl excitement to come – if you have a Seahawk-spirit photo or tip, please let us know so we can share along the way.

    My 49er fan sister and B.I.L. from California were watching the game with me with a smug satisfied look on their faces with snide remarks. That is until the last few minutes. Then they sat there in dumbfounded silence while I was screaming with joy!! GO HAWKS!!!!

    What a thrilling game, I would love to play this song at my “Super Bowl Party”, artist anyone?

    Silly Goose…if you are asking about the song in my video, it is a take off of Bruno Mars song Uptown Funk…you can download the mp3 of the song I used here:
