An unofficial Seahawks greeter
Shawn Burns isn’t waiting for tonight’s game to work his vocal cords. On the Third Avenue South backstreet, Burns is high-fiving everyone who comes by, telling them to “make some noise.” But the response is mostly subdued, as if people are conserving energy.
Everyone seems to know about the attempt tonight to break the Guinness World Record of 137 decibels for crowd noise in a stadium, he said.
Burns said he lives in Marysville and has held a season ticket 11 years, front row of the end zone.
“I love football more than anything. I’ll have this seat until I die. I’ll have a trust fund to give them to my children.”
Nearby, a 49ers dummy was hung upside down from a lumber pole on a pickup truck. A fan walked by Burns cussing out the Niners.
