Seahawks Were On A Mission

The Seattle Seahawks looked to be a team on a mission, in their 41-36, NFC playoff victory, over the New Orleans Saints, on Saturday. Jeff Duncan, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

Giddy Seattle Seahawks teammates rejoiced at midfield. “Stand Up and Get Crunk” blared over the public-address system. Incredulous fans danced in their seats and hugged and cheered and cried.

It was a scene right out of Sun Life Stadium. Except this time the New Orleans Saints were the vanquished instead of the victorious. And this time it was Matt Hasselbeck not Drew Brees basking in the glory, his son and an entire city riding piggy-back on his shoulder pads as he jogged out of Qwest Field to a hero’s welcome.
