On this date: Pro Bowl comes to the Kingdome

A look at a memorable moment in Seahawks history that occurred on Jan. 17:

1977: A splash of pre-Hawaii Pro Bowl comes to the Kingdome as Seattle hosts the NFL’s all-star game before a record crowd of 63,214. The AFC wins 24-14 as player of the game Mel Blount intercepts two passes, including one in the end zone; Ken Anderson passes for two touchdowns and O.J. Simpson runs for a third. But the Seahawks do not have a representative in the game, as Steve Largent becomes the franchise’s first Pro Bowl player in 1978.
