SEATTLE — Blitz — one of Seattle’s biggest celebrities with a beak — has a new look. He also has as new buddy.
Blitz’s new look was unveiled during a special halftime presentation at CenturyLink Field Sunday. The Hawks also unveiled Blitz’s sidekick BOOM, a lighter, younger looking buddy bird.
According to the Seahawks, BOOM, “hitched a ride in Bliz’s time machine,” to serve as Blitz’s official sidekick. Fans can expect to see BOOM at a majority of family-friendly events alongside Blitz, including appearances at schools, hospitals, kid’s club events and more, the Seakawks said.
But not everyone is in love with Blitz’s new look, and #BringBackBlitz was trending on Twitter Monday morning, with fans asking to bring back the old Blitz costume.
Old Blitz or new Blitz, most 12s can agree… he looks sharpest when the Hawks are winning.
