When we reserved our Seahawks season tickets last May after finding out we were moving back to the Pacific Northwest, we never imagined this season would be as exciting as it has been for Seahawks fans. We knew it would be a great year for us
, because we would have the opportunity to go to every home game, but we were resigned to the fact that the Hawks were rebuilding, we had no idea who would be at the helm, and we would have been happy with an 8-8 season. This Seahawks team changed all of that. They've exceeded expectations this year and they've shown us that they're on the cusp of something special. Our team has given us hope and even a bit of confidence in the future of this franchise for the first time since I can remember in my 25+ years as a fan. And what better year to get that ball rolling?
Today may just be "the last repetitive date of our lifetime" to some, and just another day to others, but to a member of the 12th Man family, today is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. The Seahawks raised the 12th Man flag today, on a Wednesday, in honor of us. The Seahawks twitter account is treating its 12th Man followers to an insider's tour of the practice facility and Centurylink Field. Many fans (myself included) are wearing their Seahawks gear today with pride to recognize the day of the #12s.
Please enjoy my gameday experience photos below - my tribute to 12/12/12, the day of the 12th Man.
