The Seahawks have always been one of those teams. Steve Largent, a great receiver for the Seahawks, sparked my interest in the team as a great player and father (of a child with a disability), as he supported disability causes that were close to his heart. From those early days on, Seattle has been my team.
The weeks leading up to this years Super Bowl have ignited a frenzy of fan support that can be seen all over Washington, and indeed the US.
Not only are Seahawk fans seen everywhere, they cause the earth to move.
Seismologists say Seahawks fans shook the ground under Seattle's CenturyLink Field during the January 14,2013 New Orleans Saints playoff game causing another fan-generated earthquake.
The Boeing painted a 747 freighter with the team logo and the Number 12 on the tail to salute the fans. The plane rolled out of a hangar Wednesday at Paine Field in Everett. It flew to Boeing Field in Seattle on Thursday for a brief stop and then took off to fly a 12 pattern over Eastern Washington.
Seahawk fans in Spokane filled the local baseball stadium today to support their team. A helicopter overhead snapped the picture.
