Washington State Ferries is honorarily and temporarily renaming its vessels after Seahawks on Super Bowl Sunday, according to this news release. The big names go to the boats on the big routes, like Seattle-Bainbridge; for the three vessels currently on the Fauntleroy-Vashon-Southworth route, you will be traveling Sunday on:

M/V Issaquah: “M/V Russell Okung

M/V Klahowya: “M/V Bruce Irvin

M/V Tillikum: “M/V Michael Robinson

(Full list here.) We will be adding this to the WSB West Seattle Super Bowl page – where we’re collecting a variety of Big Game-related info (and updating until game day – editor@westseattleblog.com – thanks!).

    Looks like the Wenatchee will be doing a great job keeping any other ferries from reaching the dock, but it seems the horn just won’t stop blowing.

    Too bad Hauschka didn’t get one named after him. He has been pretty money this year.

    Looks like all the kids at the Y’s preschool are decked out for Blue Friday. They just posted a really cute video on their Facebook page.

    WSB – Do you know who do we need to ask to get the West Seattle Water Taxi (foot ferry) named Hauschka? Seriously, this needs to happen!

    Thanks for asking UTLO… And thanks, TR. I just emailed them. I doubt they will check their emails this late. But we have to try to do something!! I don’t want him to be jinxed this weekend. Go Hauschka. Go Hawks!!!

    How about Haushka (ixnay Colman) Dock?

    That’s where they sell the tickets and therefore that’s where the “Haush money” is.

Sorry, comment time is over.
