What’s louder than a rocket launch and way more earth-shattering than a late-night summer marathon of thunder? Try taking in a Kansas City Chiefs football game at Arrowhead Stadium when the home team is on fire. On Sunday, October 13, the Chiefs improved to 6-0 for just the second time in franchise history as they whipped the Oakland Raiders 24-7 before a crowd of 76,394. Philip Robertson, the adjudicator from Guinness World Records had his “attenuation monitor” on hand to measure the crowd roar. And then it happened. With just over a minute left in the game, Husain Abdullah picked off Oakland’s Terrelle Pryor for a 44-yard touchdown. The crowd went insane. But they were saving their best for the very end. The record setting reading of 137.5 decibels — surpassing the previous record of 136.6 set in Seattle earlier in September — came during the final seconds of the game. Now THAT is loud.
