There's a big sign about Tanzania in the stadium. Paul Allen apparently loves it there. The Seahawks have never lost in the stadium since the sign was installed and have had a lot of good luck in that endzone down near the sign. Its basically become a rallying cry and big inside joke for Seahawk fans.

Tanzania (pron.: /ˌtænzəˈniːə/), officially the United Republic of Tanzania (Swahili: Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania),[5] is the country that was formed by the union of Tanganyika and Zanzibar in 1964. It is located in East Africa, bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north; Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west; and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the south. The country's eastern border lies on the Indian Ocean.

The country is divided into 30 regions: five on the semi-autonomous islands of Zanzibar and 25 on the mainland in the former Tanganyika.[6] The head of state is President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, elected in 2005. Since 1996, the official capital of Tanzania has been Dodoma, where the country's parliament and some government offices are located.[7] Between independence and 1996, the main coastal city of Dar es Salaam served as the country's political capital. Today, it remains Tanzania's principal commercial city and de facto seat of most government institutions.[6][8] It is the major seaport for the country and its landlocked neighbours.

The name Tanzania derives from the first syllables of the names of the two states, Tanganyika and Zanzibar, that united to form the country.[9] :mrgreen:

Haha nice. When was it put there? I was at the Seahawks-Ravens game last year and didn't notice it. I'll look for it next week.

I'd also like to point out that every time a big play happens the sign is always in the pre-snap shot of the players lining up.

Tanzania is amazing :)

Yet before every game you feel the need to trash it because you feel like they win whenever you do.

Dont worry Roland thinks its his duty to be a ass in any thread that can be remotely spiritual in any way.( jokingly or otherwise)
If he can't see it, touch it, hear it, or taste it, it doesn't exist.
It was probably one of his ancestors that told Ben Franklin that electricity would never work.

He could still die in a jet ski accident. I mean, what are the actual stipulations for the Madden curse anyway?

Tan-za-nia - clap clap clap clap clap
Tan-za-nia - clap clap clap clap clap

I still like it way better than "Let's go Seahawks with claps"

Or the all too familiar slow and dreadful one side says "Goooooooooo" and the other side says "Seahawwwwwwks". Then within 20 seconds they are overlapping each other and it all falls apart.

Whoever pipes in the music... please... please... please.... sneak a "tan-za-nia" chant with claps in tomorrow. You owe it to the hawks. You owe it to the fans. You owe it to the WORLD!

Oh no you didnt!!!

Thats the one and only organized fan cheer in any sport that i've ever actually liked. I generally HATE any fan chant or organized cheer, including the wave.

I miss it. I dont think its been done since the Kingdome days. :(

Psh, I'm just playing a role; like you. You pretend to honestly believe it, and I give you crap over it and throw it back in your face by bashing it and taking credit for our two huge wins as of late. Though...IS IT really coincidence that we've raped our last two opponents, coinciding with my outspoken hatred of Tanzania? :D

No, no, it's alright. Clearly the Madden Curse is real, despite massive evidence to the contrary. ;-)

Don't get me wrong J. In theory I like the fact that this has been our number 1 cheer for years, and anytime I have gone to a game, or even at home I get involved. I just hate how it peters out so quickly because of how slow it is. One side finds themselves yelling over the other and it dies.

If it were changed slightly then I think it would be much more effective and last longer. Like when I used to go to a lot of Utah Jazz games they used to do the same thing, but it ran into the same problem. Then they changed it up and started just having everybody yelling "Go Jazz, Go Jazz, Go Jazz" rather than "Go..... Jazzzzzzzzz" and having it from opposite sides. Even adding "Let's" to the beginning of Go Seahawks and having everybody do it then it might not die a quick and messy death like it always seems to especially at the times when I think it really helps get the D going.

I miss it mainly for how organized it was. The current "SEA-HAWKS" chant that is done in the stadium is always impromptu and NEVER in sync. NEVER. Each quadrant of the stadium does it on it's own, and they never sync up. Would sound so much cooler if the video board helped in some way.

lol, most people think its about Tanzania, its not, the power comes from Mt. Kilimanjaro

its a triple cone volcano sister to Mt Ranier, legend has it the mountain can turn into giant monsters and gobble up the natives, that magic passes through magma to Mt Ranier where that magic slowly finds its way to the Clink, the Clink is supposedly where the monsters are locked up and tormented unable to move for their sins towards the natives.*

also, short people inhabit the forests surrounding the mountain, (pygmies) legend has it Russel Wilson is their incarnated Chief and will someday defeat the monsters of Kilimanjaro, the legend goes on to say Wilson must first win a Superbowl for the sister mountain for transforming the magic into usable form then that power can be transformed into defeating the Monsters of Kilimanjaro...

some say the power is getting stronger and stronger and soon after the monsters are locked up forever natives will be able to rest in peace and crown their new King.

theres more to it but thats it in a nutshell... :th2thumbs:
