The support for Seattle’s professional football team has been buzzing in the Emerald City this week as the Seahawks prepare for Sunday’s big Super Bowl.

Boeing’s newly-designed 747-8 flew in a 12 pattern across Washington state.

Two companies in particular showed their 12th Man passion in some pretty awesome ways. Boeing wowed fans by unveiling a Seahawks-themed 747-8 Freighter and then one-upped that by flying in a 12 pattern around Washington one day later.

Then, on Friday, 7,000 Microsoft employees gathered at the company’s Redmond campus to form a massive 12 that looked epic from above:


Other Seattle-based companies like Expedia and ExtraHop came up with some creative ways to show their Seahawks spirit, but Microsoft and Boeing really stepped up their games.

    I loved them all and refusing to vote because all participants including all the mom & pop shops like the 10 person machine shop in Monroe submitting their #TGIBF support means just as much as the great show of support from Boeing, Microsoft, Expedia, Amazon, etc. employees and fans

    I think Microsoft shows the true fan spirit – 7000 employees participating !
    Although the Boeing airplane is very cool – all it shows is a massive support of $$ – not of people and their time.

    How much of the Boeing union benefit givebacks went to pay for the plane stunt?
