Mayor Dave Earling dropped by Edmonds Chamber of Commerce weekly networking breakfast Wednesday, but it was the 12th Man who stole the show. Seahawks jerseys in many cases replaced business suits and even the most die-hard savvy dressers made allowances for blue and green accessories — all in support of the Seattle football team’s Super Bowl appearance this Sunday.

The mayor, by the way, was there to invite Chamber members to the annual State of the City address, this year set from 8:30-9:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 20 at the Edmonds Theater, 415 Main St. But he also shared his love for the Seahawks, noting that he has been a long-time season ticket holder.
