"We Are 12"

The Museum of Pop Culture (formerly the Experience Music Project) is a popular music museum in Seattle. It was donated by Paul G. Allen, co-founder of Microsoft and former owner of the Seattle Seahawks, and is located on the Seattle Center campus adjacent to the city's landmark, the Space Needle. The museum opened in 2000.

MoPOP, as it is affectionately known in Seattle, is one of the city's most famous museums. In a futuristic building, music lovers can enter a world of Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, music videos and rock music in a general sense and spend hours wandering through recent music history. That alone is reason enough to seek out this place.

But in recent years, there was also a reason for less musical people to visit the EMP. The Seattle Seahawks, in cooperation with the museum management, set up a free exhibition there that could be visited independently of the museum itself - We Are 12. This is no longer active, but you can get an exclusive impression here on the site.

This exhibition is a tribute to the Seattle Seahawks, their coaches, their players and their fans. We Are 12 celebrates a historic Super Bowl season, a great team and the loud and proud 12th Man, now known as the 12s.

Among other things, the Vince Lombardi Trophy, a ball from Super Bowl XLVIII and a Seahawks Super Bowl ring are on display. The philosophy of the Seahawks is described in detail. Numerous items illustrate the facts. In addition, there are many opportunities to experience individual moments of the 2013 season up close again. You can do this with your eyes, hands, ears and voice - and become an even more intense part of it yourself. Goosebumps are guaranteed!

Deafening and opponent-paralysing

The feeling of announcing plays to your teammates as the opposing quarterback in Lumen Field (formerly CenturyLink Field, Qwest Field, Seahawks Stadium) must have a lot to do with helplessness. A playmaker simply can't get through to the fans with his own voice. Many therefore switch to hand signals.
