On Blue Friday — a.k.a., the Friday before last week’s Seahawks game — sisters Monica and Elise Scott hung out at the Sloop Tavern in Ballard and made something special: good luck cards to each of our players.
“We are so excited about the 2018 season, and we know that awesome things are in store for the Seahawks this year!” they wrote on Instagram. “Let’s go, Seahawks!!! 💚🏈💙”
