In a side alley, just off 1st Avenue, you'll find them. A line of RV's and cars, parked and in place for today. Here, in this off beat location, is where some of the most die hard Seahawk fans meet pre-game, in a little place nicknamed "Hawk Alley."

"We arrive on Friday afternoon to get the best spot," said Tom Brown of Blue Line Express.

Once in place, the elaborate set up begins. With Blue tents and gas grills of every size. Tables are covered in Seahawk Blue cloths, and the food is ready to go. And it's not your common burgers and brats, it's bacon wrapped cinnamon rolls and beer battered pancakes.

"We will make three different meals, from breakfast to dinner items," said Blue Line Express, Brandi.

Contigency plans are also in place for the weather. With high winds blowing through the alley, cement blocks are used to anchor the tents. Rain was caught in homemade rain gutters and some people even brought hand pumps to clear out the puddles of water.

Mixed in the sea of Blue and Neon Green, two lone New Orleans Saints fans, walked through the guantlet. Jovan Phillips and victor Soler came up from Joint Base Lewis Mcchord. Phillips won the tickets on base. Although they got some ribbing from Seahawks fans, they still felt welcomed.

"I knew it would be fun here at Hawk Alley so we came early to start out the day," said Phillips.

Up to 600 people are expected to fill the backstreet. Once it gets close to game time, the tables, tents and grills will be packed up. Then it's time for the real party--Seahawks Game Time!
