Ford of Kirkland hosts Seahawks rally | Photos

In celebration of the Super Bowl, Ford of Kirkland owner Jim Walen and Denver-based Sill-Terhar Motors owner Beau Smith have placed a friendly wager.

If the Seattle Seahawks win, Ford of Kirkland employees get a Rocky Mountain themed lunch courtesy of Sill-Terhar Motors but if the Denver Broncos win, Ford of Kirkland will need to provide their employees with a Northwest themed lunch.

Think salmon, Walen said.

Furthermore, Walen and the rest of Ford of Kirkland invited the public to a Seahawks rally at the dealership’s showroom on Friday for a Seahawks rally.

“I want Denver to be in second place,” Walen said, adding that he’s originally from Denver. “It’s our turn.”

Rally-goers wore Seahawks colors, jerseys and other team gear.

“The more Seahawks boosters and supporters -- the 12th Man is huge -- the better,” Walen said. “It’s big and hopefully it’s going to lead the team to victory.”

The rally began at noon and last about an hour.
