However, in the run up to the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers, Socialist Alternative Councilwoman Kshama Sawant railed against the restrictiveness nature of Seattle Seahawk season tickets preventing many unprivileged WeHawk fans from seeing the game in person.
Sawant organized some street theater to illustrate the divide between the Seahawk fans have and have nots with a “13th Man Initiative”. The socialist rally on Capitol Hill gathered hundreds of blue and lime clad workers chanting “No justice, no beast”. During their march to Pioneer Square, protesters carried signs reading “We are the 13” and “12th Man, aka Bequeathed Mode”.
“With 3 million people in the Seattle metro area, that’s about 44 people
per seat. After this weekend, the Hawks will have
played 10 home games, or 41 quarters (remember the overtime versus the
Broncos). If you subtract infants and Sounders fans, that comes out
almost perfectly to one quarter per person.”
Right. And Sawant is supposedly an economics professor. Perhaps it should be noted that Washington state has legalized the recreation use of marijuana. College campuses may have been a bit ahead of the pot legalization initiative.
