The Seahawks trounced the 49ers, but Pete Carroll didn’t run up the score as much as he could have, so I suppose that counts as a win for civility and a triumph of the holiday spirit. Though at one point in the second half, Carroll was spotted on the sideline after a Seattle touchdown, grinning and strutting like he just plowed the homecoming queen. No reason why he shouldn’t feel good. Just a perfect distillation of Pete Carroll’s unique brand of unbridled enthusiasm and smug.
