Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before Richard Sherman and Russell Wilson, there was Steve Largent and Jim Zorn! As the Seattle Seahawks prepare for Super Bowl XLVIII, football fans will enjoy this rollicking team history as seen through the eyes of an obsessive fan. Since the franchise's beginnings more than 30 years ago, there's no doubt who has been the greatest member of the Seattle Seahawks. After all, who was there at the opening of the Kingdome only to watch that fabled stadium, years later, turn to dust? Who endured the embarrassment of The Boz? And who was there during Super Bowl XL to witness the team lose to the game officials? Oh yeah, that's right. We, the 12th man, were there. Living up to our reputation as some of the loudest, most supportive fans in the NFL. Notes from a 12 Man isn't just the team's history, it's our history. Author Mark Tye Turner, a television writer who's been a 12th man since Day One, tells it like it is and in obsessive detail. This book will make you laugh, wince, cheer, and learn everything you ever need to know about the Seattle Seahawks--and then some!

Synopsis:

The Seattle Seahawks retired number 12 in honor of the "Twelfth Man" — those fans who remained devoted no matter what. Written as a series of small essays and lists, with the same sly humor author Mark Turner brought to his scripts for "Talk Soup" and "Blind Date, " this passionate "fan-oir" covers the team's highlights, lowlights, and everything in between. Themed sections include "In the Beginning," "Pop Goes the Culture," "Transitions," and recurring chapters that offer play-by-play reportage and analysis of notable victories and notorious losses.
