Whoa, Reeboks? Sunday's attempt at the Seattle Seahawks game to set a Guinness world record for "loudest crowd roar at a sports stadium" was successful. Guinness confirmed that, following a sack of the San Francisco quarterback, the crowd noise hit 131.9 decibles, beating the 131.76 decibles set at a soccer match in Turkey.

Coincidently, for next Sunday's Seahawk game against Jacksonville, the first 30,000 fans will receive free Seahawk Miracle-Ear Hearing Aids in Seahawk Blue or Action Green.
