(Updated) ESPN Zone Is Looking for Chicago’s Finest Couch Potatoes (Enter by 12/9; Event is 1/1)

This event is so awesome.  I’m hoping one of the WindyCityEvents.com readers will get to compete and tell us about it!  Check it out:

ESPN Zone (43 E. Ohio St.) began taking entries today for its eighth annual Ultimate Couch Potato competition, scheduled for Jan. 1, 2010. In a nut shell, four sports fanatics from the Chicagoland will square off in a competitive sitting competition on New Year’s Day to see who can watch the most continuous hours of televised sports (bathroom breaks only once every eight hours and no sleeping allowed). Entries close on Dec. 9.  Visit http://www.espnzone.com/ultimatecouchpotato/ for more info and details on how to submit your entry.  One of you better get this and tell us about it!

UPDATE: The four contenders have been chosen and you can watch introductory videos of each person at http://espnzone.com/ultimatecouchpotato/. I think my money is on Jerzy.  Who’s your pick?
