Rose Bowl Sitter
(wgvu) - Jim Purol took a seat at the Rose Bowl,
and then another, and then another, until he surpassed a world record.

The Anaheim man surpassed a Guiness World Record on Wednesday for "Most Seats Sat in 48 Hours" by sitting in 39,250 seats.

He began the task Monday morning, and at last look, was still going, hoping to rest his tush in each of the stadium's 91,542 seats by sometime this week.

The 56-year-old, who already holds several other world records, says he has dreamed of tackling the Rose Bowl seats for about 20 years - ever since he sat in all the seats at University of Michigan's football stadium.

The feat has taken a toll on his body and his cleanliness, as soot on the seats rubbed off on his clothes. He says he loves the Rose Bowl but calls the place "filthy."
