12th Man Tree

This is our 12th Man Christmas Tree in the rec room.

  We have both Seattle Seahawks ornaments and Detroit Lions ornaments.

We have the old Seahawks colours.

The new Lions logo.

Every year we get a different ornament to add to the tree.

This icicle actually lights up with different colours when you turn it on.

And I didn't make these Seahawks pictures blurry on purpose, Steve!

I just don't know what mode to use on my camera to take pictures of the ornaments without the flash showing up in them!

And this is our big reward for being season ticket holders this year!

Woohoo!  We got a card!  Okay, in all fairness there was an ornament in with it too.  You can see it in the first picture of the ornaments.  We used to get a $100.00 gift card to spend at the Pro Shop.  But I know, times are tough for the NFL. (sniff!sniff!)
The sad part is I was still so excited to get the card yesterday.  At least it showed they didn't completely forget about us!

So, that's a peek at our 12th man Christmas tree and now.......

That's right, a picture of Fred!!

And now to answer the burning question.....if Steve has been a Seahawks fan for over 25 years, why do we have season tickets to the Lions!  It's because Seattle is a 5 1/2 hour flight away and Detroit is a 2 1/2 hour drive not to mention the cost!  Steve flew to Seattle once for a game at Quest Field. ( An anniversary present from me about 8 years ago).  That was his one time dream.  So now we just drive to Detroit, at least it's live football!


  1. Love your football tree... HH used to go to the Lions' games with her dad when she was a kid.... He had season tickets every year.... Now, she lives in Florida and couldn't sit in the cold for anything.... Have fun.

  2. Great tree. I am still trin' to get MOM to get a tree. Maybe next year. My MOM loves the Lions (although her team is the Titians). Fred is that how you watch football? I like to lay on MOM's lap. Although I sleep mostly until she jumps and shouts at the TV. hehehe

  3. A very nice football tree for the man cave. Our tree is a basset hound tree, go figure. BOL Merry Christmas. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

  4. BOL I love football! I can carry the full sized ones even though they are as big as me

  5. AWESOME! I think I need a Vikings tree!

  6. great football tree!!! haha at fred, he looks so comfy

  7. That is a great tree! Well at least you got a card and an ornament for having season tickets. All I ever get for having season tickets to University of Michigan football is a bill at the end of the season for my voluntary-mandatory contribution to the athletic fund to keep my seats where they are. :)

  8. As usual, great photos! And I love your 12th Man tree. It's perfect for your rec room :) I would love to have a second smaller tree in the basement just for the kids to decorate hehe.

  9. What the heck!!! Where's the WOMAN tree???
    BOL, Lovies, Miss Mindy

  10. I could ask what / who the seahawks & lions are and what a 12th man tree is, but then you'd just laugh at the stupid Brit, so I won't ask that... Deccy x

  11. What a beautiful tree! I love Christmas trees! And we really enjoyed the pictures of the hounds with santa. I'm not sure what my boxers would do with Santa! lol
