West Seattle scenes: Seahawks spirit before The Big Game

Hours till game time … and we’ve collected some West Seattle scenes from “Blue Friday.” First – from left, Sue, Ardeen, and Doree are the “Lunch Ladies” of Denny International Middle School, and they rocked the ‘Hawks spirit – personally as well as decoration-wise:

In true Seattle-sustainability spirit, they made decorations out of old pizza boxes during winter break. For as far as the Seahawks get this season, they’ll keep it going – and by the way, they have a wish list, maybe Russell, Marshawn, or Richard visiting the Denny lunchroom? Of course, other West Seattle schools sported spirit too. Josh shared this photo from Westside School (WSB sponsor):

From K-5 STEM, here’s 7-year-old Brooklyn, whose mom Stacey explains, “She put this outfit together on her own……even painted her nails! Takes after her mom. . Go Hawks!”

Also at STEM, Robin Graham from the K-5 STEM PTA shares this link – kids spotted around Boren today who instead of Owls were “Hawks for a Day.” Meantime, you might call these kids “Hawklets”:

Mindi shared the photo from Munchkin Junction. In The Triangle, The Grove-West Seattle Inn added the Seahawks flag to their roster:

And we have to take one more look at the downtown skyline – from the Russell building’s #12 to the CLink color:

Thanks to Craig Young for the photo. And just as we were about to hit the “publish” button, we received this unique alternative view of the building:

Those are twins Eudora and Guthrie Itano Parson, age 7, whose granddad Steve shared the photo and noted, “This is how we ‘Do’ in Seattle: Our kids learn to live in the rain, they read ‘Books’ and cheer for the Seahawks.” Kickoff is 1:30 pm Saturday.


  1. Woohoo!!! so excited for the game! Love how our city rallies and bonds together for the hawks. We may argue and fight over traffic, politics and other day to day issues but it’s really cool that the hawks can bring us all together and bring some joy to the city. Go Hawks! Keep this train rolling and keep giving this beautiful city something to be proud of!

  3. Anyone else notice the 12 on the building downtown now reads 49?

  4. The camera’s a little fuzzy but it looks more to me like a 19 …

  5. No, it changed back to 12 by the time I posted, but earlier in the evening it was a 49–my wife and I both noticed it
