Preschoolers at The Boys and Girls Club got the day started right performing their version of "What does the Hawk Say?"
Flags were raised all over town, including at a pre-game celebration at Southridge Sports Events Complex. The 12th man is flying above the Carousel of Dreams, under construction at the site.
Sue Garfield wasn't going to miss the opportunity to see it:
"I've been very much involved and have season tickets my daughter and I go and scream are lungs out, we helped them get there," said Garfield.
But the loudest screamer and 12th man came from Badger Mountain Elementary. Decked out in blue and green, the elementary kids formed the number 12 on the school playground for an aerial shot as a plane flew overhead to take their picture.
If you want to gather with your fellow Seahawks fans, there's a 12th man march Saturday. It starts at Columbia Point at noon and goes to the fingernail. Families are welcome.
