Good morning, 12s.
Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Thursday, September 5 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
With Week 1 upon us, I think we all know that tomorrow is not just a regular weekday. 12s everywhere have been reminding us on Twitter that September 6 marks the first official Blue Friday of the 2019 regular season.
Starting on Tuesday, we’ve been tweeting out a collection of 12 Flag photos from around the globe on our official Twitter account. On the sandy shores of Cannon Beach, all the way ‘across the pond’ to the London Eye, there are not many places that the 12s aren’t representing.
The goal of the campaign is to encapsulate the spirit of the 12s and highlight the true support of the Seattle Seahawks all of the world. It doesn’t matter if you’re deep in the streets of an urban concrete jungle, or far off in the woods of Cascades, you’ll always find the 12 Flag flying high.
Fans have been responding well with their own photos.
Keep an eye out on Seahawks Twitter for more photos of the 12 Flag all over the world. Be sure to reply to the original thread with a photo of you flying that 12 Flag high! And don’t forget to use the hashtag #12sEverywhere.
