Nate McMillan Gives Seahawks A Boost
Nate McMillan found a fun way to spend the final day before the start of training camp.
McMillan raised the 12th Man flag Sunday at the Seahawks’ game against the Chargers. Immediately prior to kickoff for each home game, the Seahawks have somebody with Seattle ties raise the flag to fire up the crowd. It works, too; it’s a great tradition. (Check out the list here; click on the name for video).
Anyway, they show a short, dramatic film about the person’s accomplishments, then introduce them and raise the flag.
Like all honorees, McMillan wore a No. 12 Seahawks jersey, then cupped his ears to encourage more noise from the crowd. Probably beats answering questions from reporters, like he will do Monday when Media Day kicks off training camp.
