Blue Friday: Round 3
(1090 The Fan) – Blue Friday last week (January 4th) was bliss for the 12th Man, but the Seahawks want to take it up a notch with an itinerary of awesomeness for this upcoming Friday.
First off, don’t forget to wear blue (hence the name, Einstein).
Here’s what’s going down:
7 a.m. Newport High School students will stage a 300 person “12” on the school’s football field.
The Hawk-crazy high schoolers are getting up at the crack of dawn so they can give one hell of a spectacle at 7:00 a.m.
8 a.m. Sea Gals and Blitz will make a special appearance at the downtown Seattle Top Pot.
The downtown shop and every other Top Pot store is offering “Seahawk theme doughnuts” for $.99 throughout the weekend! And if doughnuts aren’t your thing…let’s say you’re a taco dude, Jack in the Box is handing out two free tacos to any fan who wears Seahawks gear into a Jack in the Box location on Friday.
12:30 -2 p.m. Seahawks Fan Rally at Renton City Hall
Renton Mayor Denis Law, the Sea Gals, Blue Thunder and Blitz are gonna get loud with a “Yes, we’re ready as ever for Atlanta” pep rally.
2-3 p.m. A 25′ x 30′ Seahawks “12” banner will be airborne above I-405 between Bellevue and SeaTac, weather permitting.
2:30 p.m. Fans are asked to rally (again) along South 188th Street near the intersection of 46th Avenue South and South 188th Street in SeaTac where the team’s buses will travel to the airport.
This is where we come in. We want the crowd to be double the size it was last time. We want the noise to be twice as loud. The Hawks won their first road playoff game since 1983, we need to reward them. If you missed out last week, take a look at the gallery here.
Also, for all you nerds (this includes us), join the Twitter conversation with comments and photos using the official playoff hashtags including the following: #GoHawks, #SeahawksBlue, #SEAvsATL or #NFLPlayoffs.
