Blitz, the infamous Seahawks' mascot, has joined the Seafair Royals! On Wednesday, January 29 Blitz was knighted at Seafair's 65th Anniversary Kick Off at the Seattle Boat Show. He has been dubbed the "Squire of the 12th Man Spirit & Sideline Dances".

Since joining the Seattle Seahawks in 1998, Blitz has become one of the most recognized mascots in the nation. Known for his high-energy, high-fives and raise the roofs at every home game, Blitz knows how to excite a crowd. And this crowd at CenturyLink Field isn’t just any crowd. It’s the home of the 12th man, the loudest fans in the world. Blitz never fails to keep the energy up and the crowd on their feet as he leads the 12’s to the big game.
