Seahawks shutout could mean big payout
SEATTLE -- When the Seahawks shutout the Giants 23-0 last month, a Federal Way car dealership coughed up the cash for its 12th Man promotion. Twelve winners divided a $420,000 jackpot in that contest, and now Jet Chevrolet is back in the game.
This week the dealership is taking entries for a new prize.
If Seattle shuts out San Francisco on Sunday, the dealership will draw 12 winners and give them each $12,000. The Hawks last shutout the 49ers in 2007, 24-0.
"There's a lot of people in the Seattle area that believe," said general manager Mike Gates.
Those believers don't have to buy a car to enter but if they do, they get 100 entries.
The dealership buys insurance that covers the winnings. Premiums went up after December's drawing.
