On Friday afternoon, the state Senate passed Senate Resolution 8676 to change the name of Mount Rainier to "Mount Seattle Seahawks," according to The Capitol Record.

But it didn't end there. Lawmakers also voted to rename Mount Rainier National Park "12th Man National Park," and gave Sunday, Feb. 2 the official title of "Seahawks Sunday."

After Sen. Jim Hargrove, D-Hoquiam, announced the resolution, lawmakers ended the discussion by chanting "Go Hawks!"
