But--and this is an embarrassment to admit--when the hometown team is "The Champion" and Seattlites everywhere are flying their "Twelfth Man" flags--and retailers are putting up huge displays of wares in Seahawk colors-- and total strangers on the trail near my house yell "Go Hawks", it's contagious. Yes, I have caught a mild case of the fever. Hopefully, I will be cured forever after February 2.
Tonight as I drove home from a haircut, I stopped at a traffic light behind a truck. Then I saw what you see here. . . such neat, tidy lettering proclaiming what has become Seattle's slogan. I snapped the picture just as the light turned green.
