Super Congratulations from Maple Leaf Life and the Maple Leaf Dog Oasis.

On the bad news end, this showed up at Maple Leaf Reservoir Park over the weekend. (And it’s not the first time.)

Maple Leaf 12th Man – noon Sunday at the park

January 31st, 2014 by Mike

12th Man.


At the park.

Noon …er, 12 p.m.

A group of Maple Leaf residents are pulling together a 12th Man photo op on Seahawk Super Bowl Sunday.

The plan: Meet at the viewpoint on the southeast side of Maple Leaf Reservoir Park at 12 p.m. Sunday.

Wear Hawk gear. Make a giant “12.”

From Donna Hartmann-Miller of Friends for a Greater Maple Leaf Park and the Maple Leaf Community Council, who is looking for a tall ladder:

If it is overcast, we can take the photo from the viewpoint INTO the park and maybe get the water tank in the background. If it is a clear day, we can take the shot TOWARDS the viewpoint and get Mount Rainier.

Which, for the event, has been renamed Mount Seattle Seahawks by the state Legislature. (Don’t tell the Salish.)

Also from Donna:

Something fun for kids under 12 — Maple Leaf Ace Hardware is offering free Seahawks inspired face painting this weekend, Saturday and Sunday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The store is at 9000 Roosevelt Way N.E. and this is part of our 12th Man Special Weekend. If a grownup (or anyone over 12) wants to match, it will only cost $2 to be the most Seahawk-y fans around.

Finally, help The Seattle Public Library beat Denver! (Hash tags #SEAreads and #ReadingBowl)
