The magic of the 12

See also

It wasn’t long after the Superbowl that the idea of the Seahawks winning the championship became a question of fate. Of course after a long and well played season they also deserved to be there but after some consideration of the Seahawks correspondence with the number 12 you might just see where the idea of fate comes into play. The Seahawks and the 12th Man have been hand in hand along this incredible journey for years and it really paid off this season.

The number 12 and the 12th Man have been hand in hand with the Seahawks for a very long time. So long in fact that the number 12 jersey was retired by the Seahawks in honor of their fans in 1984. Although the term had been used for the Seahawks fans for some time already, the retirement of the jersey to let the Seahawks fans have it was really the beginning of something magical.

Just what does all of this have to do with the Superbowl and how is that connected to the magic of the 12?

A little bit of math and numerology come into play here. This years Superbowl is Superbowl 48, 4+8=12. Lets look at scoring first, the first score in the first half of the game was 12 seconds in, the first score in the second half was also 12 seconds in and the first Seahawks touch down happened at exactly 12 minutes into the game. Over all the Seahawks are a young team, the average age of their players is 26, 2*6=12. This great team was officially named 39 years ago, 3+9=12. Don’t forget that the Seahawks total playoff wins is also 12 and of course the fans, known as the 12th Man that can be found world wide.

A lot of things really add up for the Seahawks and the 12th Man and of course the number 12. For them it is truly a magical number and even after playing a great season you can say that some of it may have been a little bit about fate, correspondences and some magic in the air.
