‘Go Hawks’ Banner Set to Fly Over San Francisco Stadium Before Sunday’s Game
A couple of guys used the website FundRazr to pull together $1,300 to fly a "Go 'Hawks" banner in the air above Candlestick Park before Sunday's game between Seattle and San Francisco. They actually raised $1,800! The extra money will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
When I heard about it I thought it was the greatest thing ever. I was about to donate $5 when I realized they'd already met their goal.
I'm always looking for a way to piss off a 49ers fan.
Plus, the main reason this was put together is fans wanted the 49ers and their boosters to feel the 12th Man. They wanted San Francisco to know we are there. We're watching. We want them to feel our presence.
The 12th Man are the greatest fans in the world. It's genius and I'm proud of the fact that it took only 30 minutes to raise the money.
We probably won't get to see it since it will happen about 60 minutes before the game.
If it was me, the only thing I'd add to the sign is "137.6 decibals held by the 12th Man!"
