Seahawks fan gets team logo on prosthetic eyeball (PHOTO)

It's hard to look Bill Vandenbush in the eye and not know which NFL team he roots for. That's because the die-hard Seattle Seahawks fan has the team's navy and neon logo printed on his prosthetic right eyeball.

“I had mentioned it to my wife. She wasn’t a big Seahawks fan,” Vandenbush said, as reported by KIRO-TV. “I said it’d be cool to have the Seahawks logo right there in my eye.”

So, when their 10th wedding anniversary rolled around on July 23, his wife surprised him with a new artificial eye featuring the Seahawks logo as the pupil.

Vandenbush — who has been a Seahawks fan since the team's inception in 1976 — ended up with the prosthetic eye as a result of his military tour in Vietnam, where he was "blown up and shot five times."

The vet ended up without a right eye and has to be fitted for a new eye every six years.

Vanderbush has a normal eye but he uses and plans to use the eye-catching Seahawks orb for "special occasions."

“Every game I'll have it in, or any gathering with Seahawks' fans present," he said.

And things have been looking pretty good for the Super Bowl champs.
