There are a lot of weird Guinness world records out there, from the "World's Fastest Furniture" (a couch that can go 92 mph) to the "World's Longest Eyebrow" (3½ inches) to the "World's Tallest Snowman" (former Philadelphia 76ers center Shawn Bradley).
Well, here's another to add to the list: "Largest Gathering of People Wearing Fleece Blankets."
That's right, every fan at the Cleveland Cavaliers' March 5 game against the Detroit Pistons will wear a limited edition Snuggie before the game's tip-off. After five snuggly minutes, the Guinness World Record adjudicator will give the official word that the record for, um, "largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets" has been set.
Welcome to Cleveland, Antawn.
