VIDEO: Tim Lincecum Raises Seahawks 12th Man Flag Vs. Falcons

The Seattle Seahawks are noted for having one of the NFL's best crowds, a distinction they like to play up by having special guests raise the team's 12th Man flag before each home game.

We'll assume Lincecum was chosen for his 2010 playoff success pitching against the Atlanta Braves, but that cross-sport, cross-town mojo didn't pay off as the Falcons won comfortably, 34-18. But he did a good job, waving a lot, and reporter bro was impressed enough to dub Lincecum a "good guy."

Last we saw Lincecum in this space, he was cussing like a cussing-ass toddler at a vigorously chopping Turner Field crowd. In that spirit: f*** yeah, 12th man! Shut up!
