Chicago Real Estate Business Owner is World's Greatest Couch Potato


What does a Chicago-based real estate business owner do to kick off 2010? Sit and watch a record-breaking 72 straight hours of television, of course.

Jeff Miller, a 26-year-old real estate business owner from Rogers Park, participated in and won his third consecutive Ultimate Couch Potato competition at Chicago's ESPN Zone. The contest, which began at 10 a.m. CST on Jan. 1, is a "competition to see who can watch the most continuous TV sports coverage" among four finalists, including the returning champion from the previous year and three other contestants who are selected by way of an essay contest, according to the event's official rules.
