The Dallas Cowboys Did Not Break A Noise Record While Losing Again While The Seattle Seahawks Broke A Noise Record While Winning Again

No, above you are not looking at an artist's rendering of what the Trinity River Vision Boondoggle may look like if it ever becomes anything anyone might be able to see.

In the picture you are looking east on a much bigger pond than that little Pond Granger that the Trinity River Vision Boondoggle envisions and hyperbolically calls a lake and a waterfront attraction. Above you are looking at an actual waterfront in an actual city with actual vision.

That thing being struck by lightning is where the Seattle Seahawks play football. The lightning strike occurred yesterday, part of what delayed the start of last night's game between Seattle and San Francisco for an hour.

I don't know if thunder contributed to the noise, but yesterday the Seattle football fanatics broke the Guinness Record for Loudest Crowd Roar at a Sports Stadium when the noise reached 131.9 decibels when San Francisco's quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, was sacked in the first quarter.

All those decibels broke the old record of 131.76 decibels, set in 2011 in Turkey at the Ali Sami Yen Sport Complex Turk Telekom Arena during a soccer match between Galatasaray SC and Fenerbahce.

The noisy Seattle fans then broke their own record after a 3rd quarter interception, roaring to 136.6 decibels.

The Seahawk stadium has no roof over the field. How are these people being so LOUD? The old Kingdome was known for being noisy, to the point that the noise disrupted games. I think new rules were put in place due to the noisy Kingdome fans, if I remember right. I can see why the Kingdome was noisy.

But, the new open air Seahawk Stadium?

How come the Dallas Cowboy fans are not record breaking loud in their new stadium? It would seem like that metal sardine can would be a real noise generator. Does the quiet have something to do with not winning very many football games?
