The 12th man is NO JOKE, and we have seismometer readings to prove it.

Seahawks fans jumping up and down during tonight’s 22-yard Michael Bennett fumble return for a touchdown registered about a magnitude 1 or 2 earthquake.
The University of Washington has a seismometer located in a warehouse about a block south of CenturyLink Field, says Earth & Space Sciences Prof. John Vidale. The same seismometer captured Marshawn Lynch’s “Beast Quake” on Jan. 8, 2011, when he rumbled for a 67-yard touchdown run that clinched a 41-36 playoff victory over the New Orleans Saints.
