Which record are you trying to break?

Are they trying to be the loudest crowd in history or the driest
Seventy-five thousand towels will be distributed at the New Orleans Saints’ "Sunday Night Football" game against the Carolina Panthers on Dec. 8 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m.

"It's one of the special things we have going for us," Saints Coach Sean Payton said Saturday about crowd noise in the Superdome. "It's one for the reasons we play so well at home (6-0 this season). Let's see who has the loudest stadium in the NFL. Let's see how we measure up. ... We're going to lean heavily on our home crowd.. ... It's a big plus for us."
 Not sure how towels make you louder but okay.

AddingI guess it really isn't.

As Sean Payton, the Saints' coach, held up the George Halas Trophy, he saluted the long-suffering fans.

"This is for everybody in this city," he said. "This stadium used to have holes in it and it used to be wet. It's not wet anymore."
