I do like the Seahawks, really. (But we are more of Packers/Steelers fans in our house even though no one is from the Midwest. You may pick who you marry but not what sports team that person is attached to.)
The NFL is taking over a section of Pioneer Square for "Gameday Village" with activities starting TODAY (Wednesday) from 10 am-10 pm. Thursday the "Village" will be open from 10 am to 5:15 pm.
But tomorrow, Thursday the 4th, is going to the opening day for the NFL and, with the Seahawks being Super Bowl Champions, it's going to be crazy.
There will be an free outdoor concert at the North Lot at CenturyLink Field by Pharrell (Happy) Williams and Soundgarten at 2:30 pm. At the same time, fans will be arriving for the game that starts at 5:30 pm. Apparently, some new girl singer, Ariana Grande, will be singing the national anthem before the game starts.
I tell you all this to say: THAT AREA WILL BE CROWDED AND TRAFFIC WILL BE HORRIBLE.
And, district headquarters is just south of that area. If you do not have to go to JSCEE, do NOT drive in that area. (I suspect the Board meeting tonight might be sparsely attended, given it's the first day of school AND all this NFL hoopla is happening.)
