Winning the Super Bowl and other milestones

I’ve never lived in a city that has won the Super Bowl before. It’s pretty intense. Everywhere you go and everyplace you look you see Seahawks paraphernalia. About 20% of the houses in our neighborhood have blue flags with the number 12 on them. A lot of people even put up blue and green Christmas lights.

The drive-through espresso stands have Seahawks cookies for sale. The grocery stores look like one big Super Bowl party.

Last night after the Super Bowl, the roads were packed. It was like work traffic, times ten. All of the DJs on the radio were going nuts. One station even played the same two songs over and over again on repeat: the Presidents of The United States of America’s song “This is a Blitz” and Macklemore’s “Can’t Hold Us”. (Ben Haggerty is from Everett, Washington, btw.)

I’m not a big football fan, but the joy was contagious. I think all of Puget Sound was celebrating.

Speaking of joy, here’s my “I Brake for Moms” column from yesterday’s Everett Herald: Both joy and sadness follow parenting milestones.

I hope you’re having a happy day too!
