Feb 2nd is going to be a big day for Seattleites. On that day, Seattle Seahawks will face Denver broncos in the 48th super bowl held in New Jersey. As you can imagine, the whole of Seattle is psyched up about this game. Though I myself do not follow football, or any other sports for that matter, this game is something very special for our city, and I will be rooting for my hometown team. I am showing my 12th man pride by baking these delicious chicken wings. Hope you enjoy them. Go hawks!
