NFC Championship: Justin Timberlake starts Seattle Seahawks chant at concert (Video)

Pop crooner Justin Timberlake is a huge sports fan. In addition to being a minority owner of the Memphis Grizzlies franchise, Timberlake is often seen at sporting events and loves to engage himself in sports conversations.

Of course, when you’re touring the globe and hammering out hit singles with mega artists like Jay Z, you don’t exactly have a ton of time to get your sports fill in. So – why not just bring it to the venue?

While in Seattle recently, the singer decided to start a Seahawks inspired chant in advance of Sunday’s NFC Championship between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks, giving love to the ’12th man’ in the process.

Timberlake clearly had a good time, thanking the fans – including those who root for the Seahawks – for coming out:

Seattle gets down… For real. Shout out to @macklemore and some of the @Seahawks for coming. Oh, and Frasier Crane.

It’s not known if Timberlake is pulling for the Seahawks in the title game, though at least San Francisco has former porn star Bree Olson on their side.

Same thing, right?
