Seahawks Fans Trying To Buy "Go 'Hawks" Bricks At 49ers New Stadium

The Seattle Seahawks are quickly becoming on of my favorite NFL fan bases. The 12th Man as they’re known have always been known for being loud, and when the San Francisco 49ers come to town they’re going to do their part to help out their team. They’ll be trying to break the Guinness Book of World Records “loudest crowd” record.

That record is currently held by a Turkish soccer team that reached a decibel level of 131. The Seahawks fans regularly get to 112.

But if that wasn’t enough, the Seahawks are cleverly targeting their rivals in a different way.

The San Francisco 49ers are building a new stadium and are selling bricks for the “Fanwalk” at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. They’re expecting thousands of bricks at the new plaza and they range in price from $195 to $545 depending on size and location. As of Thursday morning the group organizing the brick hijacking had raised $400.

Now the Levi’s Stadium Foundation can reject any text, so Seahawks fans are getting creative.

NFL.com says: “The covert maneuver started as a strand on a Seahawks fan subreddit on the social news website Reddit, per SeattlePI.com.”

Suggestions include:

» Great Ones Have Achieved Wisdom Knowing Success – First letter of each word spells “Go Hawks.”

» BALTY – An acronym of “better at life than you,” which spawned after Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman’s said to Skip Bayless.

» What’s your deal? – Pete Carroll asked Jim Harbaugh this after a game in the college level.

» 12>49 – 12th man is greater than 49ers?
