As we wrote in March, the Angels had one of the best giveaways ever planned for their May 10th game against the White Sox. They gave away wrestling masks to every single fan in attendance with the goal of setting the Guinness World Record for the “largest gathering of people wearing costume masks.” Seriously. I don’t even know where they come up with this stuff.
The Angels fans in attendance put on masks to start the fifth inning and the stadium scoreboard began a 10-minute countdown where fans had to wear their masks. While most fans were into it and threw on the mask, there were some fans who refused to put theirs on. Still, after 10 minutes (which spilled over to the bottom of the inning), the Angels were able to set the record.
Of course it was last season when the Angels set the Guinness Record for most people wearing a fleece blanket. The Cavaliers were understandably upset because the Angels blew away the record they had just previously set.
Some people will call it stupid, but all that matters to me is the Angels now have a new good luck charm. I’ll take it. Here are more pictures of the Angels Wrestling Mask:
