SEATTLE -- After waiting decades for a major sports championship, thousands of Seattleites took to the streets as fireworks popped, horns blared and flags waved following the Seahawks decisive Super Bowl win. Mohamed Salah Chelsea Jersey . "I was born here, I was raised here! This is my ultimate dream!" shouted John Caro, who, with his wife Corina, both 59, whooped their way down Lake City Way in North Seattle and high-fived passersby. "We have waited so freakin long for this!" The Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 Sunday. The last time a major Seattle sports franchise won a championship was in 1979 when the Supersonics took the NBA title. The WNBAs Seattle Storm have won two championships, in 2004 and 2010. Seattle police were out in large numbers in many neighbourhoods after the game. The department was investigating two shootings that came amid widespread celebrations over the Seahawks Super Bowl win, both near the Pioneer Square neighbourhood, where thousands of fans gathered. The separate incidents occurred just before 12 a.m. Monday and left two victims hospitalized with non-life-tfhreatening wounds, police spokesman Mark Jamieson said. The suspect in the first shooting was apprehended when officers in the area heard the shots and saw him running. No one has been arrested in the other shooting. The motives for the shootings remained unclear. For most of Sunday night the crowd was in a celebratory mood, but later on it turned ugly, with people hurling bottles at police and breaking windows, Jamieson said. Officers in riot gear eventually dispersed the crowd. The Fire Department reported about a half-dozen bonfires around the city, mostly involving couches and mattresses burned in streets. The biggest blaze was near the University of Washington, where one person was arrested for investigation of reckless burning. In all, about six people were arrested, including the suspects in the burning and shooting cases, Jamieson said. In Occidental Park in Pioneer Square, near CenturyLink Field where the Seahawks play, people waving "12th Man" flags took to the streets, and others climbed trees and sculptures. They broke 17 glass panes and caused other damage to a historic pergola that will cost about $25,000 to repair, Joelle Hammerstad, a Parks Department spokeswoman, said Monday. People in some neighbourhoods blocked traffic, and in downtown a line of cars stretched for blocks as people cheered. Seattle police spokesman Mark Jamieson said Sunday night the biggest concentrations of people were downtown and in the University District. He said no major disturbances were reported. By contrast, the mood in Denver was subdued, as expected, with fans downcast and police reporting few problems. Mayor Ed Murray said in a statement that a Seahawks victory parade would occur Wednesday, with a route through downtown and ending at CenturyLink Field. Shrieking and waving her Seahawks flags at passing cars on a North Seattle street, Senayet Woldemarian, a 29-year-old physical therapist from suburban Shoreline, said: "We got our first Super Bowl!" Her friend, wedding photographer Taylor Olcott, 28, said it reminded her a little of being in Boston in 2004, when the Red Sox won baseballs World Series for the first time since 1918. "This is the first time Ive really seen Seattle passionate about anything," she said. "Its, like, East Coast. Its very exciting." About 30 people watched the game at the Outlander Brewery in Seattles Fremont neighbourhood. It was such a blowout that by the fourth quarter, employees had switched one of the three TVs to Animal Planets "Puppy Bowl." "Were all in euphoria right now," said Steve McVay, a 43-year-old Seattle IT worker. "Its a huge deal for the city. Since the Sonics, we havent won anything." Jamal Blackman Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla.

Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. http://www.chelseasoccerjerseysonline.c ... ea-jersey/
.J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night.The Calgary Flames try to string together back-to-back wins for only the second time this season as they play host on Wednesday night to the Columbus Blue Jackets. The Flames have not won two straight since Oct. 9-11, a pair of home wins over Montreal and New Jersey that were part of a 3-0-2 start. However, they are just 4-11-1 since and snapped a six-game slide with Mondays 5-4 shootout victory over the Winnipeg Jets. Calgary failed to hold four one-goal leads in the game, giving up an overtime- forcing tally with just six seconds left in regulation. However, Reto Berra was strong in overtime and stopped six of the eight skaters he faced in the shootout, while Joe Colborne, Lee Stempniak and Sean Monahan all tallied in the tiebreaker. Mike Cammalleri and T.J. Brodie had a goal and an assist in regulation, while Lance Bouma and Jiri Hudler also lit the lamp. Berra made 43 saves in total, with the rookie improving to 2-4-1 with a 3.66 goals against average and .889 save percentage in seven starts. Berra picked up both his first win and Calgarys first triumph since Nov. 3 in Chicago. "I think that theyre charging the fans to leave the building, because if that one was not exciting for them it sure was for me," said Calgary head coach Bob Hartley. "We made it interesting, we made it tough on us, but at the end we found a way to win, so big two points." The Flames next look to snap a five-game home losing streak and will play their next three in Calgary. While the Flames are coming off what Hartley saw as an exciting win, the Blue Jackets put together a forgettable performance on Tuesdaay night. Ramires Jersey. Coming off its first victory in four games, Columbus was routed 7-0 by the hosting Edmonton Oilers. Sergei Bobrovsky allowed four goals on 18 shots before getting lifted just shy of the halfway mark of the second period. Curtis McElhinney allowed three goals on 14 shots in relief. Columbus had snapped an 0-0-3 slide with a victory in Ottawa on Sunday, but lost for the ninth time in the last 11 games overall. The Blue Jackets were shut out for a second time this season and managed a season-low 14 shots on goal. "Im just really, really disappointed," said Blue Jackets coach Todd Richards. "We werent ready to play the game. We werent ready to battle. We werent ready to do the things necessary to win. There was no desperation and no urgency. I dont know if we get too high on ourselves. You are going to have no success in this league, and it was proven tonight first-hand, if you arent ready and willing to battle, this is whats going to happen." Bobrovsky could get the call tonight in the third contest of a five-game road trip and is 1-1-2 with a 2.69 GAA in four previous meetings with the Flames. That includes a loss in Columbus on Oct. 4, yielding four goals on 30 shots. McElhinney beat Calgary the only other time he faced them, but that came back on Feb. 11, 2011 while with Anaheim despite giving up four goals on 25 shots. The Flames bested the Blue Jackets for the first time in the last three meetings with the win back on Oct. 4. Hudler and Curtis Glencross had third- period goals and Monahan scored in his first NHL game. Columbus has still won three straight in Calgary.
