Rangers trying to set Guiness World Record for largest number of people spelling a team name with glow sticks
With the baseball season so close you can already smell the sausages, a plan to attempt one of the lamest Guinness World Records in history has been announced. According to the Dallas Morning News, the Rangers are hoping to have thousands of fans gather next week and spell out the team’s name using glow sticks. Why? Just because.
The Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau and the city of Arlington are looking for 4,200 Rangers fans to show up at parking lot B at 6 p.m. next Friday to hold a blue glow stick. The fans will be arranged so that a giant “Rangers” is spelled out and the results will be filmed from a helicopter and shown on the Ballpark at Arlington video board at the Rangers’ April 6 home opener. Is that the most exciting thing you’ve ever heard?
In addition to being the coolest display of commitment in sports history, the Rangers also have their sights set on a Guinness World Record. If all goes to plan, the hope is that they can set the mark for “largest number of people gathered to spell out a team name with glow sticks.” As the Dallas Morning News pointed out, it doesn’t appear that the record has ever been attempted before, which is shocking since it’s such an awesome idea. I can’t wait to hear the results.
