Seahawks Lombardi Trophy

What a thrill for Seahawks skipper Pete Carroll to grasp the Vince Lombardi Trophy following the humiliation of the Denver Broncos.  Franchise Owner Paul Allen is on the right.

Vince Lombardi was a teacher, a coach, and a leader. His philosophy to succeed emphasized teamwork, focus, discipline, and a will to accomplish goals. He taught his football players to use their talents to the best of their abilities and to have an inner drive to achieve their objectives. 

Lombardi’s intense training regimen, strategy and leadership transformed the [Green Bay] Packers into the team to beat during the 1960s. His legendary “Power Sweep” was a part of the powerful Lombardi style. -Eric Simonson.

The team arrived back in Seattle Monday night and were shadowed back to team headquarters in Renton Washington by hundreds of cheering fans.

I wonder how many have developed a serious case of laryngitis!

Missing from the exiting team members was Russell Wilson.  That's because he was the only guest on the David Letterman Show Monday night!

Mr. Wilson is the epitome of grace and integrity.  He related the story of his late Dad, who asked the now famous question, "Why not you Russell?"

"I remember my dad asking me one time, and it's something that has always stuck with me: 'Why not you, Russ?' You know, why not me? Why not me in the Super Bowl? So in speaking to our football team earlier in the year, I said, 'Why not us? Why can't we be there?'" 

The Seattle Seahawks have delivered an amazing season, from pre-season through the route at the Meadowlands.

I remember when the franchise opened at the Seattle Kingdom in 1976, with Jim Zorn delivering electrifying air-games, followed by Dave Kreig and Matt Hasselbeck.

I am worn out!
