At the peak of Seahawks spirit, West Seattleite plants 12th Man flag on Western Hemisphere’s highest mountainJanuary 14, 2014 at 2:04 pm | In West Seattle news, West Seattle people | 7 Comments
How far can the Seahawks‘ 12th Man go? In the person of West Seattleite Gordon Prinster, all the way to the highest point in the Western Hemisphere! You’ve met Gordon here before – he accompanied son Cal Prinster on a cross-country bike ride in 2012, raising $ for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. The video shared with us today shows Gordon at the summit of Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina, 22,837 feet, on January 4th (Cal wasn’t on this trip; Gordon went up with climbing partner Ed Vandenhaak of Bellingham). “What else would a West Seattle guy plant at the summit but a 12th Man flag?” explained Gordon’s wife Bernadette Brown, sharing the video with WSB. Ironically, Gordon didn’t get to watch last Sunday’s big game, as he was flying home from Argentina at the time and is now back at work at West Seattle High School, she says. NEXT game!
