On Friday afternoon, the state Senate passed Senate Resolution 8676 to change the name of Mt. Rainier to "Mt. Seattle Seahawks," according to The Capitol Record.

But it didn't end there. Lawmakers also voted to rename Mt. Rainier National Park "12th Man National Park," and gave Sunday, Feb. 2 the official title of "Seahawks Sunday."

After Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, announced the resolution, lawmakers ended the discussion by chanting "Go Hawks!"
