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.

A dozen 49ers fans managed to score a prime tailgating spot, next to the $60 parking lot east of the CLink, after driving up from the Bay Area for some high-level seats at the game.
Dan McGuire predicts a 35-28 Niners win. “It’s going to be a good game regardless, that’s why we came up. He said his group has Seattle friends, who got them a tailgate spot — the two clans shared shredded pork, beer and vodka.
“Everybody’s been very nice, in Seattle in general,” he said.
Like the Hawks fans, they played beanbag toss.
McGuire turned to Seattle fan Kari Johnson and exclaimed “Busta Rhymes,” pretending not to recognize her cutout of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman.
Johnson said, “We know they’re Seahawks fans at heart. That’s why we allow them in our neck of the woods, because the Seahawks will win the game.”
