The 12th man is ever mindful of the Seattle's jaywalking laws.

In Ballard, after the the Seahawks Super Bowl victory over the Broncos, fans thronged the streets in jubilant celebration.

Instead of breaking glass and blasting fire works in the middle of intersections, the 12th man in Ballard heeded jaywalking laws and waited for the street light to signal their paused exuberance. When the light said "walk" flocks of green and blue flooded the intersection, blasting horns and screaming. And yes, there were a few fireworks.

Responding to a Youtube video of the scene, Mayor Ed Murray gave Ballardites the nod on Twitter, and wrote "Good job Ballard."
