The Seahawks won on Sunday. But they lost something far more important.
Four weeks after the Seahawks claimed the honors for the Guinness Book of World Records for crowd noise with 136.6 decibels, the Chiefs have topped the 12th Man.
Via the team’s official website, the Chiefs bested the number with 137.5 decibels.
“In the fourth quarter, as the Chiefs fans were celebrating their victory, all of the sudden it peaked at 137.5 decibels,” Guinness World Record adjudicator Philip Robertson said. “They screamed for an incredibly long time, probably longer than what I heard in Seattle.”
Seahawks fans? You’re up.
And if that fails, they can try instead for such venerable high-water marks as the longest ear hair, biggest collection of traffic cones, and the farthest distance moonwalking in an hour.
