On this date: The first memorable 48 in franchise history
A look at a couple of memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on June 17:
1997: Washington state voters pass Referendum 48 that approves funds for a new stadium for the Seahawks, a move necessary for Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen to complete his purchase of the franchise from Ken Behring. The Referendum got 51.1 percent of the votes (820,354) statewide, including 56.4 percent (275,358) in King County. In February, the Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII.
