Craig Salathe sported a vintage Steve Largent Seattle Seahawks jersey.

His son, Max, donned a new Russell Wilson jersey.

The Redmond residents were shivering a bit from the cold this morning, but they were both wearing Super Bowl victory smiles as they waited for the 545 SoundTransit bus to take them  to downtown Seattle and the big parade, which started at 11 a.m.

As they stood at the bus stop on West Lake Sammamish Parkway Northeast at 8:30 a.m., the bundled-up Salathes said they had been there since 8 a.m.

"We've missed four buses because they're all full. So we're thinking of getting one going the other way because they're all empty," Craig said. "I don't care if I get down there and watch 10 minutes of it. It's still worth it."

Craig added that the longtime Salathe fans had season tickets in the Kingdome.

"It's unbelievable. Vindication. It's like crazy," Craig said of the Hawks' 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos last Sunday for Seattle's first Super Bowl triumph.

"It was insane. It was exactly what we needed. (We've spent) years waiting for that," Max concluded.
