Sacramento Kings fans are at it again – creating a movement on social media, this time in attempt to break the Guinness World Record for indoor noise.
The #HereWeRoar hashtag, which was brought back to life (with much assistance from @HereWeStay(ed) and @KFippin) a short time ago caught the attention of Sacramento Kings majority owner Vivek Ranadive along with COO Chris Granger, who confirmed Tuesday that a Guinness representative will be in attendance for the nationally broadcast game (ESPN) against the Detroit Pistons on November 15th.
From Monday evening:
I guess a call to Guinness is the first line of business tomorrow morning.
@vivek @sacramentokings #HereWeRoar 11/15/13
And then later confirmed on Tuesday:
Confirmed Guinness rep in the house on 11/15/13. Next to-do: ordering 17317 pairs of ear plugs.
While the Seattle Seahawks broke the outdoor noise record earlier this year, which was then followed by the Kansas City Chiefs just a few weeks ago, the indoor record is held by the Bradley Centre, home to the Milwaukee Bucks. The record of 106.6 dBA was recorded during a timeout in 2008.
The loudest crowd roar at an indoor sports arena is 106.6 dBA recorded during a second time-out in the third quarter of the the LA Clippers v Milwaukee Bucks game at Bradley Centre, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA, on 20 December 2008.
The Bradley Center accommodates 18,600 attendees for basketball.
Get those cowbells clanging, folks.
