West Seattle Super Bowl Sunday: Game day is here!

February 2, 2014 at 8:37 am | In West Seattle news, WS miscellaneous | 19 Comments

Thanks to Bonnie for sending that GO HAWKS! scene from Lincoln Park, starting spot for the annual WSFA25K/50K, which has an estimated 200 people on the run right now. Other notes for today:

WEST SEATTLE ULTIMATE FAMILY FRISBEE: Special 10 am start time – and you’re urged to wear Seahawks gear. Walt Hundley Playfield. (31st/Myrtle)

WEST SEATTLE FARMERS’ MARKET: 10 am-2 pm as always. (44th/Alaska)

WEST SEATTLE GREEN SPACE COALITION RALLY: WSGSC hopes to stop expected tree-cutting at the ex-City Light substation on Genesee Hill before its future is determined, and invites supporters to tie ribbons to trees and place signs, noon-1 pm, as previewed here Saturday. (50th/Dakota)

THE GAME! THE GAME! THE GAME! The info we’ve collected in recent days is all on this page, including game-watching spots you might not have thought of (for example, Highland Park Improvement Club – all ages). We also have a list of some of the businesses that have announced they’re closing early (or not opening today at all), but it’s NOT a full list – we’re sure there are many more. Basic advice – if you need to buy something, go early! And then, go, Hawks!

P.S. In case you didn’t see it on our Super Bowl page, here’s Barry White‘s video of 12th Man sightings around West Seattle (and a few other spots):

And Guardian One caught 12th Man spirit sightings from the air on Saturday night (before the fog grounded the law-enforcement helicopter for the night):

P.P.S. 24/7 news coverage continues here as always. You’ll find some non-football news here on WSB too as the day/night goes on, if you’re looking for an alternative or taking a break.

  7. Only place I’ve seen mention themselves as a football alternative is (WSB sponsor) Head to Toe Day Spa, though the mention was accompanied by a photo of Seahawks-themed nail art …

  9. You might take in a movie at the Admiral- or rent a movie at home. How about a walk on the beach- gorgeous day! Honestly though I’ just try to go with the flow!
    Go Seahawks!

  10. Good point about the Admiral – their schedule is always linked on our Event Calendar page … currently showing “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Captain Phillips,” and “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom.” I’m going grocery shopping just out of curiosity about whether stores will be empty. There will be MANY score updates via Twitter, so I can check my phone every aisle or two … TR

  13. What city celebratory events are expected if Seahawks win tonight (and it looks like they will!)

    Comment by mmarie — 6:08 pm February 2, 2014 #

  14. I haven’t heard of anything formal but am looking. Also only now heard that the Space Needle’s been shooting fireworks for each score, so I’d imagine they’ll have some for a win.

  15. So far via Twitter the consensus seems to be that people are gathering right now in Pioneer Square. As for a later victory parade etc. – I’d imagine we’ll hear all that right after the game. We’ll list it all in the (not to be presumptuous but …) congratulatory story post-game, too.

  16. Remind me, do the fans tear up their own city if their team wins or loses?

    Comment by JeffK — 6:46 pm February 2, 2014 #

  17. Yes.

  18. Touche!
