'Book of Mormon' Audience in Seattle Reacts to Seahawks Wild-Card Win at Minnesota

Seattle's Paramount Theatre was packed full of Seahawks fans for a Sunday screening of 'Book of Mormon'

Temperature don't shake the faithful 12s that traveled to Minnesota to cheer on the Seahawks for the NFC Wild Card matchup against the Vikings.

An anxious crowd at a Jan. 10 'Book of Mormon' screening at Seattle's Paramount Theatre wasn't quite ready to silence their cell phones when asked to do so one minute before curtain.

That's because the Seahawks were still in the midst of their wild-card playoff bout with the Vikings in Minneapolis, a game that kicked at 10:05 a.m. PT and didn't look like it was going to end in time for the show's 1 o'clock matinee.

But 30 seconds later, Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh hooked a 27-yard field goal wide left, ensuring a 10-9 win for the Seahawks and a trip to the divisional round for a playoff game against the Carolina Panthers.

A Seahawks fan in the 'Book of Mormon' crowd recorded the entire audience's reaction, including an audible "Sea-Hawks!" chant, which you can check out in the YouTube video embedded below.
