    Its pretty obvious this team hasn't won anything before when they don't even bother to give their coach a gatorade bath after winning the game to go to the Superbowl.

    Perhaps they're waiting for the Super Bowl to celebrate...after all, there's one more game to go. ;)

    Oh c'mon...The Pats are the Presidents of the "The Superbowl is the Only thing That Matters Club" and even they splashed Belichick after every AFC Championship game

    It's Seattle, instead of Gatorade they have Starbucks coffee on the sidelines (and every other 2 feet). That can burn a coach pretty good if they dump it on his head.

    I think it's great that the fans of Seattle get to experience their team making the Super Bowl. We all have to start somewhere. I went to Super Bowls XX and XXXI and Pats fans were grossly outnumbered both times. And yeah, as fans we were green as could be in '85. Everybody's gotta start somewhere. :)

    Besides, the Gatorade splash is a cliche' started by the Giants (w/Parcells).

    Seattle to Detroit 2330miles, Pit to Detroit 300miles. Safe to say the Seahawks fans are going to get thier fill of the Terrible Towels. Sort of like the Eagles to Pats fans in Jax last year.

    If thats all your worried about, then you got lots of disappoints ahead for you...

    Its been 30yrs and how they celebrate is taken differently to all fans of the Hawks...

    I know it must suck to say anything nice about the win tonight, but don't knock us Fans for it and how we celebrate===Thats total BS, and low class of you!!!

    We have to start somehow???

    Seahawk fans/players are Super Bowl virgins - no wonder they don't know what they're doing.

    Since when did Seattle become the Cameron Indoor Stadium of the NFL? All that excitement for the freakin' conference championship. If Carolina would've won, at least the NFC would've had a shot! Be prepared for an influx of Steeler trolls after these virgins get wiped out in Detroit.

    First of all, I said nothing of the Seahawks fans. I was clearly referencing the team. Second of all, I wasn't entirely serious. Even Fox was paying more attention to when the gatorade bath was going to happen, rather than the game. Seattle is a great team. They are a lot better than what I thought they were as recently as yesterday. I, like many people, thought they were a product of a weak schedule. Today, I was proven otherwise. They have an obvious home field advantage with that 12th man over there. I just wish Gillete could be as loud as them.

    They did bring out a new thing of gatorade near the end of the game, for that purpose. I'm pretty sure The Walrus let it be known shortly after that it better not happen, or else...

    I was watching the game at a friend's house north of Seattle, and people were out lighting off fireworks... So yeah, people were celebrating.

    I've always wondered about the wisdom of hitting a middle aged, or older guy over the head with half a bathtub full of ice water or Gatorade on an already cold day. Heart attack comes to mind. Holmgren is quite a bit overweight. Andy Reid is another one. Last year when Coach Bill and his father got it, I thought that it wasn't something I'd do. Great tradition, I guess, and I hope it doesn't, but someday, something regrettable might happen.

    Like what happened to the great George Allen. Allen died after some players dumped a Gatorade bucket on him after a game victory. Remember the Seinfeld episode "The PEZ Dispenser".

    I remember when he died, but I missed that about George. Did a search, found below. There's no stopping the Gatorade baths I guess. Comes with the territory/one of the hazards of the job.

    Another Google search reveals George Allen died of pneumonia a few weeks after being doused with ice water in 1990 while coaching for Long Beach State. While not conclusively linked as contributing to the death, it certainly gives you pause.
