Since I’m sure you haven’t read enough people’s thoughts on Super Bowl XLVIII, here are mine (and yes, the title to this post is a horrible pun about the awesome band “Journey” and one of their best songs):
I remember eight years ago sitting down and writing some sort of reflection after Super Bowl XL. The focus was the simple question of what now? It had been a crazy year, full of exceeded expectations and a tremendous buildup of hopes leading only to an inevitable heartbreak.
Well after 26 years of experiencing Seattle sports, that was all I knew. Actually that’s not entirely accurate; mostly I knew little other than having no hope of cheering for a successful team in any sport.
