Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, May 10 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
The End Of An Era
As any Seahawks fan would expect, or even just a football fan for that matter, the internet reacted heavily when the team announced on Thursday that they’re parting ways with wide receiver Doug Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor with failed physical designations.
The two Super Bowl XLVIII champions each made a significant mark on the franchise and on the city of Seattle in general. Their impact was as clear as day if you happened to take a look on Twitter after the news was announced on Thursday.
More than a few players from the Seahawks roster expressed their gratitude towards the two players.
A few Seahawks Legends and former Seahawks expressed their thanks as well.
Blitz got in the mix. He and Baldwin had a special bond that they also showcased during pregame.
The league’s official Twitter account also recognized Baldwin.
Both the Mariners and the Sounders contributed with a shout out.
And of course, the 12s were sad to see the news. GIF’s and meme’s seemed to be the best route for that.
The real wild card out of the bunch, but appreciated nonetheless, was from the official Twitter account of SR 520. Yes, I know, the bridge has a Twitter account. What legend runs that?
