Hello from the White House!

Mayor Murray was at the White House this morning where President Barack Obama greeted the Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks. The President gave a great speech about the passion of the team and the passion of the 12s. He poked a little fun at Russell Wilson’s new haircut, Brandon Mebane’s celebratory belly dances and Marshawn Lynch’s media strategy.

He also highlighted the giving spirit of the players and the coaching staff, noting their dedication to Seattle community, and he marveled at Seattle’s inherent politeness following the big Super Bowl win, mentioning a group of Seattle post-game revelers who dutifully waited for crosswalk signals to turn before crossing the street.

Keep cheering 12s! They can hear you all the way to D.C.!
