Issaquah To Become 12SAQUAH

The city of Issaquah, located roughly 17 miles east of Seattle, will rename itself 12SAQUAH on Sunday, Feb. 1 - the day of Super Bowl XLIX - to celebrate the Seahawks' return to the big game.

City mayor Fred Butler signed a proclamation this morning calling for the city's renaming.

"As 12s, our community is home to some of the most passionate fans in the entire nation," Butler said. "We are thrilled to rename our City as a tribute to our Seahawks and their fans. I am proud to stand with our community of 12s and say, I'm in — again!"

Tweet of the Day

Today's "Tweet of the Day" comes from Seahawks owner Paul Allen, who offers a sneak-peak of the team's jersey combination for Super Bowl XLIX.

As the home team, Seattle will wear its college navy jerseys and college navy pants - just like it does for every game at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks were the away team when they won Super Bowl XLVIII last season, when they wore white jerseys and college navy pants.
