Thursday is the 31st birthday of Michael Robinson and the 24th birthday of Jermaine Kearse.

But there’s really no reason to ponder what to get either, or even wish them happy birthday, because the Seahawks’ veteran fullback and second-year wide receiver have just experienced an almost-weeklong celebration that no amount of money could buy.

Sunday night, the Seahawks won the first Super Bowl in franchise history and did it in stunningly impression fashion – 43-8 over the Denver Broncos at MetLife Stadium. That was followed by a party at the team hotel, which featured owner Paul Allen strapping on his guitar and laying down some serious licks with his all-star band and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis getting everyone bouncing.

But Wednesday, everything was pushed way over the top with a parade through downtown Seattle that attracted an estimated throng of more than 700,000 and a celebration ceremony at CenturyLink Field before 50,000 fans – and another 27,000 across the street at Safeco Field.

As special as everything was for everybody, Robinson and Kearse have elements to their stories that made it even more meaningful.

Robinson had been released on the roster cut to 53 players on Aug. 31 because an illness had rendered him too sick to play. But he recovered and was re-signed Oct. 22 and became a very big part of all the good things that came the Seahawks way this season.

“This whole thing has been unbelievable. Just unbelievable,” Robinson said. “This is why you play the game – to win a Super Bowl and share it with teammates as great as the ones I have. This has been so special and I feel blessed.”

For Kearse, all of this was a pinch-me experience. He grew up in Lakewood and played at Lakes High School and the University of Washington before signing with the Seahawks as a rookie free agent in 2012. And his sure-plays-a-mean-pinball run after the catch for a 23-yard touchdown against the Broncos was included in ESPN’s Top 10 plays of the season.

“Some of my teammates, we all went out and celebrated a little bit (after the team charter returned to Seattle on Monday night), had some fun,” said Kearse on Tuesday, when he estimated he was working on four hours of sleep since Sunday morning. “Growing up and being able to watch the Seahawks while growing up, and then being a part of this organization and its first Super Bowl team, that’s about as good as it gets.”

So, not that they need it, but one Super Happy Birthday to Michael Robinson and Jermaine Kearse.
