I'm In the Guiness Book of World Records!

...for eating potato chips!!!

OK, not me alone. We went to our local hockey game last night. Everyone received a bag of potato chips when they got in the game. At the last 10 minutes of the 1rst quarter, they told everyone to start eating! We made it! We are all now in the Guiness Book of World Records for the most people at one time eating potato chips. Pretty cool, huh?

This is goofy daughter and her friend taking a picture of themselves eating.


This is a bad picture of me and 7-year old and hubby. (My hubby is out of town this week for work so I'm sad.) After the game my son told me he thought it was a competition to see who could eat their chips the fastest, and he wanted to know who won. He ate his as fast as he could. Well, they DID make us all stand up, say, "OK, ready, set, start eating!". My other son was there too, but he was on the complete opposite side from us with his friends.

My 7-year old's boy scouts are going to one of the games in a few weeks. It would cost $9.00 per person. We would need 5 tickets (my youngest would not go). We suggested to them to go this night with the school. No one seemed to want to do that.The school gives free tickets to all the kids plus my husbands and my tickets would be $8.50. Hmm, $45.00 or $17.00.? We chose the $17. Then the boy scouts still expected us to go with them. Uh, no thanks. We had a great time, AND we made it into The Guiness Book of World Records!

Congrats to you and your family for making history! Whoo-hoo!! That must have been fun, especially for the kids! We have a local hockey team, the Wolves, who are actually a whole lot better than their NHL counterparts, the Blackhawks, and we enjoy going to their games, too. It's much less expensive and they are always doing fun things with the crowd.

So, what time should I be expecting you to arrive with your laundry? Just wonderin'! :)

How exciting! My hometown once got together and made the world's largest apple pie.

Kitty said...

Gosh ... doesn't your daughter look just like you? :-O

Glad you all had a good time, and congratulations on getting into the book! x

Karen said...

How fun is that?! Too bad they can't list everyone's name in it, but just knowing you helped make it happen is fun.

Mary said...

What a fun night :)
And what a fun little fact to be able to share with people!

I can eat a whole container of pringles by myself. I get a huge stomach ache afterwards, but those things are good!

Congratulations!

Came over from Girly Mom--this is how I find new FUN blogs, apparently--I love her taste!

What a great blog and what a crazy busy family. I loved reading some of your older posts!

Gosh I miss hockey . . . from Detroit (Hockey Town!). Used to to to Junior Red Wings games all the time--loved 'em!

Have a great week!

Magirk said...

Way to go! You're famous! ;D

It sounds like a fun night. And I probably would have done the same thing to avoid the higher cost! (ha, ha)

Cute pictures. :)

Amy said...

That is very cool. I think I almost set a record for potato chip eating myself this weekend. Just me. Sigh.

Jen said...

Yum! Even though your picture is at an awkward angle, its still cute and your daughter looks a lot like you!

Looks like everyone is having fun!

OHmommy said...

Goofy daughter is so cute! Congrats!!! (on the cute daughter and the record)

Bia said...

Wow! Now, the next time someone tags you for seven random facts, you can include the fact that you are in the Guiness Book of World Records! Not many people can say that!

God bless!

Wow! Now you're like a celebrity (or something)! A chip-eating celbrity (or something)!

We only have NHL locally, and we cannot go to a game for $45. We have tickets for next month that were $90, and I thought I did pretty good with those (most games have been sold out for months and months--apparently I'm not the only one that loves Sidney Crosby a whole bunch). Well done with the bargain tickets!

GrandmaK said...

Yeah! Certainly a unique way to make it into the Guinness Book of World records...I can just imagine what this has done for everyone's quality of life, HEHEHEHEHE...just thinking about it has caused my total cholesterol to go up several point!! Whew!!! What is the next contest? Did your hockey team win? Good evening!! Cathy

Amy said...

That is so cool..we buy those every year so I can't wait until next year to get the book with you and your family in it..oh and I'm about 6 hours from Cincinatti, isn't that where you said he was going? sorry he's away and you miss him! where are you? you've probably said before and i don't remember...love the pictures!!

KIDZMAMA said...

Chip eating and a bargain! You really do it up right. Sounds like you had a blast. Guiness would be proud.

Marie said...

Oh, that is SO cool!

By the way, I tagged you over on my blog.

Congrats! that is so much fun! I haven't been to a hockey game in years!!! Then again I don't get out to much!!!

Leah said...

what a great night!! how fun! I'd be all over the $17 night, too. $45 is a real deal breaker in my book for a night out! YIKES! Glad you guys had so much fun

Flea said...

How very cool is that?

Lela said...

Sounds like you had a great time! I would have told my scouts to go on the night it only cost $17 too!

Becky said...

That's awesome that you all got to be a part of such a momentous occasion! LOL!
