Gov. Jay Inslee on Tuesday issued a proclamation proclaiming a Moment of Loudness at 12:12 p.m. today, Wednesday, urging "the 12th Man to celebrate this momentous Super Bowl win and congratulate the team and themselves by making as much noise as possible for 30 seconds."

Inslee encouraged all Washingtonians to join him in recognizing the Seahawks historic Super Bowl victory by making their voices heard Wednesday.

"No other team’s fans come close to the 12th Man. Our team is bigger, faster and stronger and the 12th Man is without question louder than anyone else in the nation," said Inslee. "[Wednesday] we’ll celebrate our team and their win with a Beastquake that will rattle the ground from Duvall to Denver."

The proclamation cites the Seahawks's scoring 12 seconds into each half of Super Bowl XLVIII, proclaiming "we can only imagine both scores were in honor of the 12th Man" and states "the Seahawks' season and Super Bowl win has brought all of Washington state together."
