Mistake by the Lake

(MYFOX NATIONAL) – The Cleveland Cavaliers NBA team will attempt to set a new Guinness World Record during their game Friday night against the Detroit Pistons by endeavoring to get as many fans at the game as possible to wear a Snuggie reports AOL News .

The record the Cavaliers are looking to break is for “Largest Gathering of People Wearing Fleece Blankets.”

Team branded Snuggies will be passed out to an estimated 20,000 fans to wear during the March 5 game where a Guinness arbitrator will certify the event. Fans who participate will receive a “commemorative magnet certificate” if the record is set.

According to NBA.com , the Snuggies will be draped over every seat and fans must wear the blanket for the first five minutes of the game.

Cavaliers President Len Komoroski said, “The Cavs ‘XL’ season keeps getting bigger and bigger with this attempt to set a Guinness World Record. Partnering with KeyBank and Snuggie blankets to create an event where our fans are an integral part of the success to give Cleveland the bragging rights of a Guinness World Record makes it a community team effort that is all the more fun.”

This is one of the funniest articles I have read about professional sports in a long time.  The citizens of Cleveland want bragging rights by achieving this “record”.  Usually, bragging rights are achieved by winning games or titles.  I can’t remember the last time Cleveland had a team that made me want to watch one of their games. Sure, they have Lebron James but does anyone really think that he is going to stay in Cleveland.  He has been spotted hanging out with rappers and celebrities in NYC whenever he has down time on his schedule.  Maybe the marketing geniuses in Cleveland think that Snuggie records will persuade Lebron to resign this offseason. Cheer up Cleveland  it cant get much worse.  You already have been ranked the most depressed city in the USA.
