Yes, a lot of morons like football. Yes, some damage was done during the celebrations in Seattle. Has there been a city in recent memory, who won a big sports championship, and this kind of thing hasn't happened? To a greater or lesser extent? Seems to me the celebrations were relatively tame around here.
Read all about it on the Seattle Times blog:
"Polite Seattle ‘rioters’ crowdfund for pergola damage
Posted by Lisa Cowan
UPDATE: 4:30 p.m., Feb. 4 | The crowdfunding for the pergola repair says it has reached its goal because the Western Washington Honda Dealers say they’ll contribute $10,000.
With the $16,046 from the crowdfunding that was reached by 4:30, that will meet the initial repair estimate by Seattle Parks of $25,000.
The repair money will be dispersed by the Seattle Parks Foundation. It says any money leftover will be used to clean up and repair parks around CenturyLink Field..." etc. etc.
