In addition to helping orchestrate the 12th Man flag raise earlier this morning at the Space Needle, Seattle mayor Mike McGinn has proclaimed January 4, 2013 “Seahawks Blue Friday” in Seattle.
“I urge all residents to honor this remarkable team and organization,” the proclamation reads, “and wish them the best of luck in this week’s game.”
The Seahawks (No. 5 seed) take on the NFC East champion Washington Redskins (No. 4 seed) in the Wild Card round of the playoffs on Sunday, January 6. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. PT at FedExField in Landover, Md. and the game will be nationally televised on FOX.
