PITTSBURGH > ROWING
Sandbury, 38, shattered her own Pennsylvania record by getting up 27 times in a single game. Attending a Steelers-Ravens matchup in row LL, section 503, seat 6 at Heinz Field, she stepped through, over and by 13 fans each trip. Of the historic 27 trips, 16 were to the bathroom, five were to call her cat and one, at halftime, was because she thought the game was over.
WINNETKA, ILL. > UPGRADING
O'Leary, 19, set a national record this baseball season by successfully moving from the upper deck to seats behind the dugout at 77.3% of the Cubs and White Sox games that he attended. O'Leary did it by creating a computer program that shows usher eye-movement patterns. "Wearing a big yellow windbreaker that says security on it doesn't hurt, either," he admitted.
OAKLAND > RESTRAINT
The 5'10", 310-pound Rodriguez, 53, made it through his 100th Raiders game without punching the fan in front of him, Benny (the Bird) Bollici. After the final whistle at each of the 100 he has told his wife, "If Benny doesn't stop waving his five-foot signs, blowing that stupid air horn in my ear and doing his TwirlyBird on every first down, I'm going to rip his beak off."
ST. LOUIS > YELLING
In 1979 Johnson made golf history in an instant when, just after a pro golfer's drive on the 18th hole at Bellerive Country Club, he bellowed, "You da man!" Last month at the ADT Championship in West Palm Beach, Fla., a spectator shouted that phrase at a PGA or LPGA player for the 500,000th time. "Personally," Johnson, 51, says, "I'm sick to death of it."
Sue Ellen Wallace
DUNWOODY, GA. > LOYALTY
A yearlong study has shown that Wallace, 36, is the last remaining Atlanta Hawks fan. She's the only one left who doesn't attend games 1) to see the other team, 2) to see the cheerleaders or 3) because the tickets are free. "This is our year," said Wallace, who first expressed that sentiment two decades ago. Last month the NBA team sent her a thank-you letter, along with a notification of this year's seat tax.
Lenny (the Lip) Petrovitz
BOSTON > HECKLING
Petrovitz, 34, was voted Most Creative A——by NBA players. Working from a baseline seat at TD Banknorth Garden, he has received special appreciation for his harassment of long-haired Clippers center Chris Kaman. To wit: "Go back under your glacier!" And: "It's aliiiiiive !" And, holding up a live poodle: "Hey, Chris! Dinner's ready!"
