Couples raises '12th Man' flag at Seahawks game


The Seattle Seahawks set the Guinness World Record on Monday night for loudest outdoor sports stadium.

The man tasked with firing up the crowd before the game? None other than Seattle native Fred Couples.

Afterward, Couples told the Seahawks’ website that he’s been a season-ticket holder for the past two years and that Monday night’s tilt was his fourth home game of the year.

“I’ve gotta be honest,” he said, “this is more fun than golf ever is. This is a blast for me to be a part of it.” 

During the second quarter, the crowd noise was recorded at 137.6 decibels, breaking the previous mark of 137.5 set earlier this year by the Kansas City Chiefs’ fans.
