Avista Stadium 12
SPOKANE, Wash. -

Fans and vendors filled Avista Stadium Friday, two days before any players took the field. It was the 12th man, uniting for one take.

"We gather to support our team. Rain, snow, whatever, we're here," Bill Hansen said.

Lance Putt eats and breathes Seahawks football. He just got the team's logo tattooed on his forearm.

"This felt right, me and my brothers, all three of us got (tattoos) the same day," he said.

Then, the crowd started filing onto the baseball field and lined up as a giant '12.'

"This photo's going to be really cool. It's going to just go viral," Jamie Patrick said.

A helicopter overhead snapped the photo. Afterwards the fans were given a '12th Man' snack of Skittles.

The money made from the event will benefit the foundation of Spokane's own Super Bowl MVP Mark Rypien. Rypien says he thinks the Seahawks will walk away with the Lombardi Trophy this Sunday.

"17-13, 20-17, somewhere in there...Denver will have a chance, I still think Seattle got to be, their defense is so good," Rypien said.
