Congrats on the big win, Seattle! Enjoy the victory Seattle style with delicious game day recipes from Pillsbury.

1. Seattle is anything but amateur when it comes to beverages.

Craft brew and coffee. Hydration is key to athletic success. Seattle fans are easily the most hydrated in the country.

2. They know how to protest. Which means the victory parties are going to be off the chain.

3. Because everything is more epic in the rain.

4. Seattle respects both types of football — because why dominate one league when you can dominate two?

5. They understand perseverance in the face of opposition.


Have you ever traveled hundreds of miles through unknown territory in order to return to your home and score? Us neither. But our team has!

6. Seattle gets high on exercise.

Hiking, cycling, swimming, kayaking, wind surfing, BMX biking, scuba diving, skiing, snowboarding, sailing, or extreme Segwaying — Seattle is into it all.

7. Because they can't stop.

Like, they legitimately can't. It's an extremely fit and active city.

8. And this means Seattle fans are a little more... spirited than the rest.

This is the one true convenience store.

10. And every company should be a tech company.


Tech me to your leader.

11. Because when Seattelites look up from the gridiron, they understand that there ain't no mountain high enough.

Ain't no valley low enough.

Ain't no river wide enough.
