The Seattle Seahawks seek to win back-to-back championships this Sunday as they go head to head with the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 49.
#TGIBF: Thank God It’s Blue Friday
Show your passion and support for the Seahawks by wearing Hawks attire or blue clothing on Friday!
In celebration of the team’s success, and sheer luck in the NFC Championship game, some of Metro Vancouver’s city councils have decided to show their Seahawks fever by raising the “12 Flag” on Friday, January 30, also known as Blue Friday.
The jersey number 12 has been retired by the Seahawks organization, an ode to the passionate fan base. Before every home game at CenturyLink Field, a 12 Flag is raised. It’s also estimated that 10 per cent of attendees at home games are Canadian.
