Cavs Set Snuggie World Record (PHOTO, VIDEO)

The Cleveland Cavaliers aimed to set a world record Friday night, and a Guinness World Records adjudicator was on hand to certify the city's success: the largest group of people wearing Snuggies in a single location. According to the AP, most fans willingly complied:

uring a timeout in the first quarter, fans were asked to wear the wine-colored blankets with arms for five minutes as a clock on the scoreboard counted down. Most everyone complied -- except for one fan wearing a Celtics jersey and another who thought ahead and brought a Pistons Snuggie. The rest of the sellout crowd of more than 20,000 turned the Q into a sea of red blankets, counting down the final seconds and cheering as the world record clock expired.

Shockingly, the record did not previously exist, so Guinness created a new category.
