Super Bowl Sunday @ The Library?

On January 11th 2013, the Seahawks’ fans created a man-made earthquake that registered on the Richter Scale according to an article on ESPN’s website. This was not actually the first occurrence of such crowd noise, which was captured by seismographs in a 2011 playoff game.[1] Some of Seattle’s residents caught the event live, but, according to the Seattle Times, others viewed it from an even more exclusive venue: Seattle’s Central Library.[2] This creates an interesting dichotomy of perceptions: the shushing librarian and the raucous NFL crowd.
