It's 12:12 All The Time

Report from the Emerald City ...

Pemco's Time and Temp
Usually an accurate indicator of time
and temperature.
Seattle, Washington, USA

Clock is stuck on 12:12 ... hmmmm

It does feel warmer than 12 degrees!
Oh ...


For those of you not into football, here's the story:  This weekend the NFL's 49th Superbowl will be played on Sunday. Our home town team, the Seahawks, will play against the New England Patriots. In football rules, a team can have only 11 players on the field at one time. Seattle's fans have become known as the 12th player ... in the stands, cheering them on. Folks who are into football here love this, others may find it crazy. All around the city the 12s are showing their support for the team in the big game. The Seahawks were winner's in last year's game. Can they do it two years in a row?

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  2. Did you know the Hawks had to pay Texas A&M for use of the 12th man.
