Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl fever hit the Washington State Senate on Blue Friday when Sen. Jim Hargrove of Hoquiam offered a resolution in honor of the big game on Sunday.

Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam: (TRT: 28) CLICK TO DOWNLOAD: “We’re running a resolution again this year again and of course our Seahawks are something to really be proud of. Not only did they come back from a three and three start, with nine and one run to make it to the playoffs, but then this game two weeks ago was incredible. But you know we have a lot of individuals on that team that are very notable, you know from the cornerback to the running backs, to the quarterback, etc. But the thing that really makes them great is the fact that they’re a team.”

Last year Hargrove offered a Superbowl sendoff resolution that renamed Mt. Rainier, Mt. Seattle Seahawks. This year, the resolution asks the governor to rename the State of Washington, the State of Hawkington – from Friday morning just until midnight Sunday night.
