Snuggie World Record Set by Cavs
Cleveland has its original world record covered.
Fans attending Friday’s game between the Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons set a world record for the largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets.
All fans in attendance had a Snuggie placed on their seats prior to the game. During a timeout in the first quarter, fans were asked to wear the wine-colored blankets with arms for five minutes as a clock on the scoreboard counted down. Most everyone complied — except for one fan wearing a Celtics jersey and another who thought ahead and brought a Pistons Snuggie. The rest of the sellout crowd of more than 20,000 turned the Q into a sea of red blankets, counting down the final seconds and cheering as the world record clock expired.
An adjudicator from Guinness World Records attended the game to make the record official.
