From the Press Release:
Cleveland, Ohio, February 23, 2010 - On Friday, March 5, 2010, the Cleveland Cavaliers and KeyBank are asking fans attending the Cavaliers vs. Detroit Pistons game to get to their seats early to help break the Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing fleece blankets.” Fans attending the game should be in their seats before the 7:00 p.m. tip off at The Q to be a part of this history-making event.
An anticipated sellout crowd of 20,562 fans will receive a complimentary limited edition Cleveland Cavaliers Snuggie™ blanket courtesy of KeyBank that will be conveniently draped over every seat in the arena. Fans will be asked to wear their Snuggie™ blanket for the first five minutes of the game. In attendance will be Guinness World Records® Adjudicator Danny Girton who will then officially certify the new record. Once the record is achieved, every fan will receive a commemorative magnet certificate that will acknowledge they are a Guinness World Record holder.
Gotta be honest, that last sentence intrigues me.
