Seahawks fan transforms Arizona home into shrine

Sports fans display loyalty to their favorite team in different ways. Some fans wear jerseys. Others wear hats or beanies. Many purchase season tickets.

Ashtin Fitzwater painted this house in Seahawks colors in Arizona to let Cardinals fans know who he’s cheering for.

 

Seattle Seahawks fan Ashtin Fitzwater has thrown down the gauntlet in terms of fan loyalty.

Fitzwater painted his entire house in Seahawks team colors. That’s not all. There’s the number “12” – recognition of Seahawks fans – painted on the roof. The jersey numbers of players are painted on the garage door.

The topper? The massive Seahawks logo painted in his yard.

“I basically stuck four stakes in the ground, measured the logo from my hardhat to get the length and the width ratios down and then blew it up for the size of my yard,” Fitzwater told FOXSports.com. “Then I got to painting.”

Fitzwater said his neighbors are cool with the gigantic Seahawks logo in the yard.

“I have a Cardinals fan on one side,” Fitzwater said. “A Broncos fan on the other side, which was funny last year, and a Niners fan five houses down.”

A 28-year-old real estate developer by trade, Fitzwater grew up in Silverdale, Washington before moving to Chandler, Arizona. It’s safe to say that he’s a lifelong Seahawks fan.

The Seahawks will face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl Sunday afternoon in Glendale, just a few miles from Chandler. Fitzwater said he is hoping to score some tickets to watch the game, but if he doesn’t, he’ll have to settle for watching the game at home.
