County Council proclaims See Blue Week - expands “Blue Friday” for countdown to Super Bowl

Tuesday, January 27, 2015

The members of the Metropolitan King County Council are looking for a “Sea of Blue” after declaring the week of January 26 - February 1 as "See Blue Week" in support of the Seattle Seahawks as they prepare to defend their Super Bowl title. 

“From the fronts of our Metro buses to the tops of the cranes across our skyline, the support and civic pride our region has for our Seahawks is impossible to miss” said Councilmember Rod Dembowski. 
“For the second year in a row it is remarkable to watch our county come together behind one of the most unique and talented sports franchises in the nation. Even for the casual sport fan, it is hard not to get caught up in the excitement and emotion of a second straight Super Bowl run. Go Hawks!”

This expansion of "Blue Friday" recognizes the impact of the “12s” support during this championship season and most notably during the historic comeback during the NFL Championship.

This action asks Seattle Seahawks fans from everywhere to show their support by wearing blue during the Super Bowl "countdown" week.

WHEREAS, our beloved Seattle Seahawks have carried the day in taking us to a second consecutive Super Bowl, Super Bowl XLIX; and

WHEREAS, the “12th Man” will be at the University of Phoenix Stadium in force and spirit; and

WHEREAS, because a “Sea of Blue” helped the Hawks prevail against the Green Bay Packers leading to this Super Bowl moment; and

WHEREAS, the fans have shown our pride of the Seahawks through “Blue Fridays” and the power of “Blue;” and
WHEREAS, we want our Seahawks to feel not only the seismic force of the “12” but to also see a sea of blue throughout the region for the week leading up to Super Bowl XLIX

NOW, THEREFORE, we, the King County Executive and Metropolitan King County Council, proclaim, January 26-February 1, 2015 as

“See Blue Week”

So that the nation will witness a “sea of blue” and the force of the fans on Super Bowl Sunday 2015.

I'll join in when non-profit status of the NFL is revoked and they start funding lifetime medical care for all of their players.
