Do you like sports? Do you like dogs? If you're enthusiastically nodding yes at your screen right now, that's cool, hey, we all get weird sometimes. But also, you'll wanna check this out. Last night, 1,122 dogs came together in all their slack-jawed beauty at U.S. Cellular Field for 10 minutes of glorious, uninterrupted butt-sniffing (we presume). This feat will be recorded for posterity in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The Sox needed a minimum of 1,000 dogs to attend the White Sox game against the Indians on Tuesday night in order to break the record at their annual "Bark at the Park" event. A Guinness World Record adjudicator was there to confirm the dogs did indeed remain in their outfield seats for at least 10 minutes, beginning at the top of the third inning. You could say they knocked it out of the park.
The dogs sported their best Sox gear and did a pre-victory lap around the field before the game. They kept things interesting throughout with a soothing backdrop of barking, yelping and other various dog sounds for the Sox players to enjoy. When asked about the noise, Adam Eaton confirmed to CSN Chicago that he could hear them, adding "''Who Let The Dogs Out?' That song was stuck in my head."
The White Sox won the game 8-1 last night. Congratulations to both the team and the dogs on their enduring achievements.
Your move, Cubs.
