So the Sacramento Kings broke the Guinness World Record for loudest arena earlier tonight with a decibel level of 119.5.  The previous record was 106.6 decibels and was set during the second time out of a game between the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks at a game in December of 2008. I found that shocking since I can’t imagine a lot of people wanting to attend a 2008 Clippers-Bucks game.

That is pretty impressive, they beat the old record by 12.9 decibels. Well later in the game, the Kings broke their less than a few hours old record. The crowd found it in themselves to raise it up to 122.6 decibels, 16 decibels over the original record and 3.1 decibels higher than the record they set earlier.

So, what were they doing before? Not trying? Come on Kings fans! It is an impressive feat no doubt.

[UPDATE:] They have since beaten the record a third time. This time they reached a decibel level of 126. That is almost 20 decibels higher than the original record.
