Seahawk playoff mania takes another twist beyond the 12th Man as a hermit crab at the Seattle Aquarium becomes the 1st Crustacean in support of the team. Marshawn "Pinch" has been fitted with a vending machine souvenir for as long as the team continues winning ways. The crab (sex unknown) heads toward an empty large barnacle shell in its tank. Friday it will move to the "closer look" table and be there through the Super Bowl, if the team makes it there. Underneath the miniature helmet is a shell the crab adopted along the way.
