Nothing will ever beat the roar of the crowd when the home team scores a goal or touchdown. But watch out — those noises can come back to sack you, pardon the pun.
The CBC ran an interesting story about crowd noise at sporting events.
That noise comes in at about 120 decibels. And when the home team scores, the sound rockets up, equating to a noise similar to a jet taking off. Except that noise is contained inside an arena.
“It’s one of those things people never think about because they’re having a good time,” said Hodgetts.
We strives to educate about the dangers of loud noise at work and at play, and encourags people to come in for free hearing tests at all our locations across Canada.
Most recently, the Seattle Seahawks,coming off their 43-8 drubbing of the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, were setting records long before the big game. Seahawks fans established a new noise record for loudest outdoor sports stadium at 137.6 decibels.
In case you didn't know, that’s louder than a jet plane from 100 feet.
Remember — there’s no shame in protecting your ears at the game. Carry earplugs or another form of ear protection when you are in noisy places.
