RICHLAND, WA - They might just have to rename Badger Mountain ‘Seahawks Mountain'. Saturday the hillside was covered in plenty of blue and green.

"The 12th man isn't over in Seattle it's also across the mountains over here in the Tri-Cities. I don't think any place has organized this many people at one time," said James Gojenola, one of the original organizers of the climb.

Last week there were only about 11 people hiking up before the saints game, but this week it was more like hundreds. The group says their Facebook initiative blew up. With the help of publicity from local radio stations, busloads of people showed up Saturday. Ben Franklin Transit offered up a free trip from the Bethel Church parking lot to the bottom of the trail.
