The 12th Man on the Seattle Seahawks Football team is enthusiastic and excited.
Today the Seattle Seahawks (11-5) play the Washington Redskins (10-6),
in an NFC wild-card football game at 4:30 EST in Washington D.C.

Excited, yes, I am one of those fans who has been rooting for the Hawks since 1976.
I haven’t been able to afford to go to a live game since we played in the Kingdome in 1999.
But that doesn’t dampen my spirits.

Friday, there was a fan rally at Valley Ridge Park next to Tyee High School in SeaTac at 2:30.
Friday was a school day,
by the time those of us who drive students home from there began arriving at about 1:30,
there were hundreds of fans already lining South 188th Street,
waiting for the charter buses transporting the Seahawks team to SeaTac International Airport
to fly out to Washington D.C.
: : :
When we left at 2:12, the throng has grown larger,
louder and more excited.
We had to exit through their wild anticipation of the Hawks.
I had my Seahawks lime-green 12th Man Fan t-shirt on, what else!
But I was concerned about people not watching themselves
as we maneuvered around to exit the school property.
After dropping off my high school students,
I returned to pick up my middle school students at Chinook via Interstate 5 and South 188th Street (my normal route).
By then the crowd had grown again, in size and excited anticipation.
I couldn’t help but wave a couple times,
as they were all waving at me in my school bus!
At 2:47 when we were leaving the school property at Chinook,
we saw the charter buses go by on South 188th Street with a police escort.

The kids on my bus were all looking and excited to see a glimpse of the rally and the team.
We’ll see who wins today…
