Scott Gurney, 30, left, with friend Kirk Stowell, 29, both from Victoria B.C. estimates he traveled almost 10 hours to get to Qwest Field. With the game already started, the Seahawks fans are stuck in a huge line with many others who arrived by shuttle bus. Gurney said he rode a bus from Northgate, but that was after enduring a cancelled ferry and a long slow journey on I-5. Vehicular traffic to the game was very low. Seattle Police officer, John Velliquette, said the closure of Snoqualmie Pass was a factor. "The vehicular traffic is really lower, maybe fifty percent of normal," said Velliquette (not pictured).
