We are all from Seattle now

There was a video clip shown by ESPN’s Keith Olbermann of joyous celebrants in Seattle Sunday night. It looked like a corner downtown. On one side of the intersection a massive throng of jumping and waving happy people were shouting “Sea!” and on the other side an equally exuberant pack responded with “Hawks!” The street was empty, no cars and no people, because the light was red. Then the walk sign came on and the crowds streamed though the intersection, screaming with joy, as if they had just been given permission, which indeed they had. Olbermann thought this was hilarious. He discovered another regional quirk. It’s the only city in the world where the unruly mobs wait for the walk sign.

I laughed, too, but I wasn’t surprised. It’s Seattle’s world this week. Watch and be amazed.
