It's Blue Friday and the city is getting jazzed about the NFC Wildcard Championship between the New Orleans Saints and the Seattle Seahawks on Saturday.

KING 5's Christie Johnson was out bright and early throwing her own party with Hawk One, the Bing Regional Tailgating Champions, learning a few tricks of the trade.
 
The club's amazing rig is outfitted with vintage memorabilia and hosts hundreds of people each game day.  Everything from original Kingdome seats, to an autographed Ring of Honor, this rig is hooked up with the best.  Hawk One is headed to Super bowl to compete against the hottest tailgaters in the country in hopes of being crowned the best in the NFL.
 
Although they enjoy a good party, they also care about the community. All year long the team runs a program called 'Hawk Cares' that raises money and gifts for under-privileged kids at Christmas.
 
"We raise money through auctions of our personal memorabilia at our tailgates. We take one hundred percent of that money and buy gifts for families in need and deliver all the gifts in this RV," said Tom Brown, Hawk One team member. 
 
Hawk One will be tailgating in Hawk Alley starting bright and early on Saturday morning.
