West Seattle Seahawk spirit: ‘World’s largest 12 flag’ rally Friday

(WSB file photo)
Last year, just before the Seahawks’ first Super Bowl win, the giant 12 flag made its debut at Delridge/Andover [map], in a rally hosted by Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) and Bartell Drugs, whose corporate HQs are in the building. This year, they’ve just invited you to help them rally again, 11 am-1 pm this Friday (January 30th), raising the 1,500-square-foot flag at 12:12 pm (of course!). Along with cheering the flag and showing off your own 12thness, the announcement says rallygoers will find product sampling from both companies as well as cheer card/poster giveaways and more. See you there!

    I don’t know if the Space Needle ever found a replacement for their tattered flag, however, wouldn’t it be great if the Delridge/Andover flag could be hoisted above th entire city!

    It would be great if they would do a rally at a time some of us working folk could attend

    Um…Super Fans? Dedicated 12’s?
    Why am I, who finds all this hype over a game played by overpaid athletes asinine, the person having to point out that the Seahawks 1st Super Bowl appearance was in 2005- they just lost that year.
    My husband, a lifelong Pats fan, showed me this (ironic) error.

      Sorry, that’s my mistake, first Super Bowl WIN. Fixing.

    Thanks ms. Sparkles. You seem like a really pleasant person. I hope you read a book or do yoga or something while the rest of the city will be having the time of our lives screaming and yelling and partying and celebrating these over paid athletes that bring our city together in a way that nothing else can.

    AMEN! a

    How big is the flag.

    • WSB January 28, 2015 (1:17 pm)

      It’s in the story. 1500 sf. (30′ x 50′)

  • Sunny.206 January 28, 2015 (1:20 pm)

    Jeez, missed that thanks

    I Love this team and what it does for Seattle.
    GO HAWKS!!!!!!

    Ms sparkles. Why don’t you attend? You might meet some great people and have a good time.
    I will even give you a Seahawks jersey to wear. You can keep it and wear it while your husband watches the game.

  • chelle January 28, 2015 (1:33 pm)

    I love the comradery that the seahawks have brought out in our community!

  • 4thGenWS January 28, 2015 (8:14 pm)

    @Korm66– hilarious!!!

    Gonna be there with my almost 12 year old!

    Super fun time to be a kid! I was 11 when the Sonics won the World Championship and my mom let us skip school. Sweet, innocent, magical times!!

  • Ms. Sparkles January 28, 2015 (8:57 pm)

    Thanks Korm66, but I’ll be working. 😉

    During the playoffs hubby did wear his Seahawks sweatshirt for their game & then threw his Pats Jersey on over the sweatshirt for the Pats game- all while I was enjoying drinks and crazy stories with my brother in another part of the house.

    A ^^^^ I second what you said. Hilarious.
    Not being from Seattle or a football gal, all of that has changed here. Seattle has the best fans, it’s very exciting and I will also say, I’ve enjoyed learning the athleticism and teamwork of the Seahawks over the years. It’s been fascinating, fun, community centric and most of all, EXCITING! No one seems to get excited about much anymore and if this is what we need to hear laughter, fireworks and horns going off once in a blue moon then so be it. I think its awesome and brings a great sense of community to a place where our dreary, wet winters can create a lot of separation and anti-social behavior.

    GO HAWKS! Your fans are watching, rooting you on and win or not- will be here when you get home to welcome you HOME and thank you for bringing our community together.

    There will always bra ba-hum-bug in the group.

    “celebrating these over paid athletes that bring our city together in a way that nothing else can”
    Don’t forget that they give millions back to communities and those in need. Like Marshawn Lynch, who continues to give back to kids in Oakland, providing food, clothes, TALKS (which he won’t do for the media who don’t need him to talk to them). Or Russell who goes to Children’s Hospital and helps raise funds for kids in need of life saving medical care. Or Sherman who raises money for kids in need and gives talks to kids to reinforce getting a better education.
    I’m sure Ms. Sparkles has better karma than the Dalai Lama…

    Also, Kam Chancellor has his Kam Cares Foundation which builds awareness and generates funds for 501c3s in his hometown and here in Seattle, often focusing on children of single-parent households.

Sorry, comment time is over.
