Disproving the maxim that sitting around endlessly watching sports on television is the exclusive province of unrepentant males, Jessica Mosley, a 27-year-old education coordinator from Arlington, Va., has won a couch-potato contest at Baltimore's ESPN Zone for the second consecutive year. Although she did not come close to improving on her record last year, Mosley sat in a recliner and kept her eyes glued to a 13-screen display of matchups for 32 hours, 59 minutes and 14 seconds - with the exception of hourly stretch breaks and trips to the bathroom once every eight hours.

If you're the kind of person who's prone to reclining in front of a TV set for hours at a time, feet up, gobbling casual refreshments and watching whatever sports match-up is on - the epitome of a couch potato - it does not seem such a wild idea to stretch it into a few days of full-on, unblinking endurance. That, at least, is the thinking behind a competition being held for the second straight year at the ESPN Zone, where four sports fans are testing their vegetative mettle by sitting for as long as they can before an array of game-blaring television screens without sleeping.

Sixth-graders at Mayfield Woods Middle School will be vying for the opportunity to dine with Ravens players at ESPN Zone in the spring and for tickets to a game in November as a reward for improving their physical fitness. The reward is part of Play 60 Challenge, a four-week contest where students are encouraged to engage in physical activity for 60 minutes during the day.
