SEATTLE, Wash. —

KIRO 7 got a sneak peek at the official 12th Man cape that T-Mobile partnered up with the Seahawks to make and hand out at CenturyLink on Saturday.

"The first 10,000 people, they'll get this at the entrance," Mike Belcher, T-Mobile vice president of media and sponsorships said.  "It's kind of like that Batman thing, that power-- the fans want to do that."  

After the company gave away 12 pairs of tickets to fans Thursday, it unveiled this new way to show 12th Man pride.

"It's like a flag and a cape," Belcher said.

They will hand out the capes at the difference entrances to the CLink.

They seemed perfect for some of the super-fans who rallied at Renton's City Hall.

"I can't be at the game tomorrow so I wanted to be a part of it as best I can," Jason Woods said.

"We purchased a 1,000 hot dogs," Renton Mayor Denis Law said. "We figured that'd be more than enough, and we figure we fell short by one to 200."

Law unveiled the refurbished Renton sign completed by the city's Public Works Department, featuring an NFC West Championship shout-out.

"I don't know that they could hear us at CenturyLink but certainly they did around the community," he said.

The community has one thing on its mind: showing pride and support for the Seahawks.

On Friday night, the 12th Man flag was flying from the top of the Space Needle and the Hammering Man outside the Seattle Art Museum had a '12' on it as well.

Officials at the King County Jail said even inmates will be allowed to watch on the TV in each section's common area.
