Hobbies are a great way to spend your time. Watching professional hockey is a hobby that many people enjoy. Watching paint dry is a less common social activity.
Fortunately, the Philadelphia Flyers are hoping to give some mainstream credibility to this alternative event in the most grandiose way possible: setting one of the lamest world records, ever. On Monday morning, the Flyers are hoping to set the Guinness World Record for the most people to simultaneously watch paint dry.
People will be invited into Wells Fargo Center at 11 a.m. to watch the underappreciated maintenance crew paint the lines that will allow the Flyers to play hockey this season. Here are the details, via the Flyers:
Help us set a new Guinness Book of World Records for the most people to simultaneously watch paint dry when we paint the lines and logos into the ice at Wells Fargo Center this Monday at 11 a.m.!
Be a part of the preparations for the 2013-14 season and bring your cameras! Fans are welcome to enter from the Fan Zone store on the 11th street side of the Wells Fargo Center.
