Seahawks sell out training camp practices in 45 minutes

The 12’s have struck again.

Per the Seattle Times, the Seahawks sold out all 12 practices (ironically enough) that will be open to the public during next month’s training camp.

And how’s this for a hot commodity: More than 30,000 tickets went on sale Thursday morning. They were gone within 45 minutes.

According to the Seahawks’ official website, a $7 transportation fee is assessed to each ticket, as fans are required to park offsite. It’s a nominal cost to see the Super Bowl champs up close, and a nice chunk of change — $210,000, if my math is correct — headed the team’s way.

Win-win for both sides.

Seattle’s training camp spans from July 25 to Aug. 12 at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, Wash.

    It’s no secret that Seahawk fan’s are the best in the NFL. Where else in sports are the fan’s as famous as the team they watch. The 12’s have always been crazy for this team, I will always remember how loud it got in the kingdome. Good times.

    You can bet I am going to go. I am going to be driving my red convertible VW bug down from Tumwater so I can be closer to Russell Wilson. Now that Russell is getting a divorce, I think it is a matter of time before he comes out like I did a few years ago. I feel so free now!.

      It looks like the sicko is back. Just because your a queer doesn’t mean everyone else is. Stop spreading false accusations about someone else. I beat your just some loser 49er fan trying to slander Mr. Wilson. And in the end the only thing your going to waiting for is Aids.

        I mostly just hang out on the fox seattle board and wait. I am only wishful about Russell Wilson. I can never be sure, only hopeful! I don’t understand why you think that is sick behavior? I am a Seahawk fan through and through.

          Your a sad excuse for a human being. It’s time you looked in the mirror and realized it. You need help. I am sure everyone on this board is sick of listening to your crap.
