Best Mile High Fans' Salute to the Broncos (2001)

Loudest stadium roar

By belting out a roar at halftime during the Broncos-Patriots skirmish, the vein-popping fiends, er, fans at Mile High bested the previous Guinness world record for loudest stadium roar. Their combined efforts, which measured 128.7 decibels, drowned out the previous record set in 1998 at an Irish rugby match. The din equaled the rumble of a jumbo jet, according to officials. Perhaps the only way to top it would be to suit up Mr. Elway -- and, of course, try again in a new stadium that's reportedly capable of sounding twice as loud.
