For those who don’t know, the 12th man is an American football reference for the crowd (11 players on the field…the crowd being the 12th). The Seattle Seahawks 12th man is really something else, holding a Guinness World record for the loudest stadium…even causing small earthquakes (magnitude 1 or 2 according to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network)!! As our first playoff game day draws near (this Saturday) I decided to post a few 12th man flag images (and Seahawk colours) I took of The Seattle Great Wheel.
Blue Friday in the title? Every Friday during the season is Blue Friday where fans wear Hawks gear to show their love and support for the Hawks. 🙂

Did you know there are 12 players on each side in the CFL? That’s one of the reasons CFL games are far more exciting and the ending more unpredictable than NFL games. .
Great shots, David. I’ve been interested for awhile about going down to the waterfront to shoot the ferris wheel. As you’ve demonstrated here, it’s possible to get some pretty jazzy reflection pictures. It seems to me like the wheel is really becoming more accepted as a fixture of the waterfront environment. And it does make for nice photo opportunities, I must admit! I love that the owners light it for special occasions.
Thanks, I will totally agree that it’s becoming to be accepted. I remember when it first went live people across the water were complaining about the lights!! 🙂
Here’s another shot of mine of the Wheel, I rather like that one!
So cool! And yes, Go Hawks!!
🙂 And go Hawks this weekend!! 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!! 🙂 GO HAWKS!!!! 🙂
