Congratulations are in order for the Los Angeles Angels organization and the fans who attended Saturday night’s 2-0 loss to the Houston Astros. And no, we’re not congratulating them for losing to Houston two nights in a row (or the fans for sitting through it) but that is pretty darn impressive in and of itself.
Actually, we’re congratulating them for achieving their goal to set a new Guinness World Record for ‘most people wearing wigs.‘ In total, 32,682 people were counted wearing the red and white wigs handed out prior to the game for the designated ten minutes. That was more than enough to shatter the previous mark of 12,083 which had been set by an Australian rugby team.
I know, a few of you are rolling your eyes at the silliness of it all, but what the heck? It's good, harmless fun. Not to mention it's a pretty cool milestone, especially for the fans who can now say they helped set an official world record. Who knows, there may even be a few of them who have participated in all four on the Angels Guinness World Records. In past years we’ve seen them set new marks for most cowboy hats, wrestling masks and Snuggie blankets worn.
Yes, there truly is a record for everything. And it’s with that in mind that we wonder what record the Angels will go for next. If any Stewies have an idea for them, be sure to leave it the suggestion box. The weirder and funnier they are, the better chance the Angels might pay attention.
