Mayor Vincent Gray on the Wildcard Playoff game (Image via Seahawks.com) If there’s one thing to be said about Seattle Seahawks football, it’s gotta be the 12th man. The roaring fans in Seattle are arguably the loudest-and-proudest fans the NFL has, and they are die-hards about their team. So how happy will they be if they win this weekend’s playoff game against the Washington Redskins? I’d assume pretty damn happy. But if they lose – they’ll have a lot more to be upset about as the Seattle City offices will have to be flying a Redskins flag for a day. Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn tweeted out that he and Washington D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray have a wager placed on the game. The losing team’s city offices has to fly a flag of the winning team’s flag for a day!   Bet with @mayorvincegray for @seahawks vs. @redskins game. Mayor of losing city must fly victor’s flag at their city hall for one day — Mayor McGinn (@mayormcginn) January 2, 2013   Seahawks fans will be pretty upset if they have to deal with such a painstaking view to their City Offices, so they may be a little more anxious about this game than any other!   Follow us on Twitter @DownandDistance Down and Distance Editor-in-Chief – Justin Arbogast @NFLGuy_SK The post Mayors for Seattle and D.C. make a friendly wager on Seahawks/Redskins Game appeared first on DOWN & DISTANCE.
