Don Baunsgard was the Joker of Seahawks fans, celebrating their win over San Francisco at a tailgate party in full make-up.

The Snoqualmie resident had watched The Dark Knight a few days before, thus deciding on the neon green and blue clown face.

Our number one defense will overcome their number one offense."
