The Seahawks surprised Special Olympian Kevin Lyons at the Eastgate Safeway where he works.

You know it's a good day working at a grocery store when Seattle Seahawks drumline Blue Thunder starts marching through the aisles.

That's what Kevin Lyons heard as he was working at the Eastgate Safeway on Saturday. The Seahawks' fan experience '12 Tour' was there to surprise Lyons, a Special Olympics athlete on Washington's soccer team.

Seahawks offensive lineman George Fant joined mascot Blitz for the big surprise. Fant and Lyons raced at bagging groceries and even played a game of 'aisle soccer.'

Lyons was all smiles as they presented him with Seahawks swag and a day at work he won't soon forget.
