Seahawks Super Bowl parade: Crowd estimated at 700,000, larger than Seattle population

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

There are more people lining the streets of Seattle for the Seahawks' Super Bowl parade than actually living in the city. This statistical anomaly is called "love."

Apparently there are more Seahawks fans in Seattle than actual people. A reported 700,000 fans have showed up to watch the team's Super Bowl victory parade Wednesday, which is greater than Seattle's estimated population of a 634,000 people.

That's a sizable crowd, even compared to previous Super Bowl parades. Baltimore turned out a relatively paltry 200,000 people to watch the Ravens' parade last year. Prior to that, the New York Giants produced a crowd between estimated between 500,000 and 1 million fans, albeit in a city with a population of 8.3 million people.

The bigger crowd may be a West Coast thing. The San Francisco Giants were reportedly able to pull 1 million revelers for their downtown World Series parade in 2012. No mention of what methods were used to estimate the size of the respective throngs, however. There may have been some generous guesswork involved.
