Seahawks Plan Simple 9-11 Tribute Before Today’s Game
With so much attention lately on a few NFL players who have chosen to kneel during the National Anthem, the Seahawks will do something completely different today. And they'll do it as an entire team in honor of 9-11.
A few days ago the buzz started that the Seahawks were going to do something special in honor of the 15th anniversary of 9-11 to show unity and bring people together.
And after wide receiver Doug Baldwin posted a video on social media, we know the entire team will stand together with arms interlocked, during the National Anthem today. Former Army Green Beret and Seattle long snapper, Nate Boyer tweeted it's, "a powerful sign of unification + respect for the Anthem + those that fight for our Freedom..."
Coach Pete Carroll says the players came up with the idea on their own, and he couldn't be more proud.
The Seahawks and Dolphins kick off this afternoon at 2:05 Mountain Time on CBS. Wouldn't it be cool if the Dolphins interlocked arms too?
