It was Blue Friday, and time for the 12s to gather in support of our team in the first playoff game on Saturday. The rally was held at the Renton city hall, and we purposefully parked quite a distance away, so that we would have to walk to get there. We bundles up for the cold fog, but it lifted by 11:00 and the weather was quite pleasant.
It was fun watching people in their team gear.
Some were over the top!
There were silly contests on the stage and prize giveaways and mascots and the Sea Gals and music and milling about.
And very good, free hot dogs!
Some Seahawks supporters are just animals!
Meet Richard Purrman and his person.
I thought at first this Newfoundland might be a bear!
The Twelves were flying high.
After about an hour we walked back to the car at Cedar River Park and then to undo that giant hotdog we walked some more along the Cedar river trail. We accumulated over five miles by the time we returned to the car to drive home.
This afternoon we finished the lanterns that had been in the Seattle Times each day this week and hung them.
It will soon be game time.
And just in case you want to help us out by cheering on the Seahawks, the game starts at 5:15 PST. But if you are a Carolina fan, forgetaboutit.
