Former President George W. Bush was among hundreds of Texas Rangers fans who helped set a new Guinness World Record on Tuesday night for the most people wearing sunglasses in the dark. While most of the 33,533 people who attended the game (against our own Tigers!) wore shades, the mark to beat was 423 so Guinness officials only counted two sections, including the one where the former Prez. was sitting. They even put Bush up on the Jumbotron.
- After officials announced that the record had been broken Bush stood up and told the crowd, “Mission Accomplished!”
- Bush also said that being “the record breaker-er is hard work! It really is!”
- Carlita Kilpatrick, who lives near the Bushes was also at the game… working as a “bat girl”.
