The Seattle Seahawks beat the manure out of the Denver Broncos 43-8. It kind of looked like the Broncos got paid to lose. But then again, I honestly think the better team won.
Despite not living up to its potential, Super Bowl XLVIII was a historical day for the Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson. He lead the team to its first-ever NFL Super Bowl championship, passing for 206 yards and two touchdowns. But more importantly, he became the second African-American quarterback to win the prolific game.
Decades before Wilson set foot on the field, Doug Williams led the Washington Redskins to a win against the Broncos in 1988 during Super Bowl XXII. The victory made him the first black quarterback to win a Super Bowl championship.
Considering that it's Black History Month, I thought it was only right to highlight Wilson's remarkable achievement. Not only did he help his team snag a significant victory over the Broncos, he also made a historical accomplishment for the black race in the process. Hats off to you, bro.
