Help set a world record with the Texas Rangers

Look, this isn’t a top shelf record like “fattest twins” or “most cigarettes smoked at one time” — and Robert Wadlow has nothing to worry about — but a place in the Guinness Book is a place in the Guinness Book:

Seventeen years after the Canadian singer released his hit song “Sunglasses at Night,” the Rangers are making an ’80s stylish attempt at getting into the Guinness Book of World Records on Tuesday night.  Fans attending Tuesday’s game against the Houston Astros will be asked to don sunglasses at the end of the sixth inning and wear them for 10 minutes in an attempt to set a world record for the “Most People Wearing Sunglasses … in the Dark.”

Look, it’s the Astros in town. They can be excused for trying to drum up some outside interest in the game, OK?
