Guy breaks world record for TV watching

Ultimate Couch PotatoAnother year, another TV watching marathon.

Jeff Miller, a businessman from Illinois, won his third (yup, third) Ultimate Couch Potato title at ESPN Zone. Miller watched TV for three straight days, beating three other TV fans who couldn't stay up for that long. Not only if this the third straight time that Miller has won the title, he broke the Guinness World Record for watching television. He also won $1000 for a new TV, a recliner, a year of cable, $1000 to spend at ESPN Zone, and a trophy shaped like a potato. He also gets to sleep for a few hours if he wants to.

Miller was only allowed to go to the bathroom every eight hours. I'm not sure if I could do that, especially if I'm drinking and/or eating during the three days. I think that would be harder than the staying up part. I wonder if they let you wear an adult diaper?

That's awful, he wasted three days watching ESPN!? Doesn't he know how many great shows he could have watched? If I had three days, whew, imagine the glorious shows I would watch.
