For one night, The Fifty/50 was somewhat of a Seattle Seahawks bar.
U.S. soccer star and Washington native Hope Solo cheered on the Seahawks Thursday at The Fifty/50 while in town for her team’s game against Germany Saturday at Toyota Park. Jerramy Stevens, who played for the Seahawks and the University of Washington, was also at The Fifty/50 watching the game.
Solo encouraged Chicagoans to come join her at the Ukrainian Village bar and support her team. “SEAHAWKS game at 50/50!” she tweeted. “Come support my hawks!”
The Seahawks ended up losing in boring fashion to the San Francisco 49ers 13-6 and the No. 1 ranked U.S. ended up tying Germany 1-1 in a game they probably should have won, but Solo’s visit wasn’t a complete disappointment.
