Jim Casey doesn’t want to break the world record for teeter-tottering, but the 1971 “Teeter-Totter Caper” episode of The Brady Bunch gave him an idea.
“I remember as a kid thinking it would be neat to do something like that,” said Casey, a longtime disc jockey and trivia aficionado who has hosted trivia games in Manatee-Sarasota for six years.
He’ll attempt to break the Guinness World Record for longest marathon as quizmaster this weekend from 6 a.m. Saturday to 6 p.m. Sunday at Sarasota Wings-N-Things, 7640 Lockwood Ridge Road. Casey must have at least two teams of four playing for the entire 36 hours, but other players can swap in and do not have to play for any specified amount of time.

The entry fee is $20 and all proceeds from the entry fee will benefit Feeding Empty Little Tummies, a charity dedicated to feeding homeless children.
Wings-N-Things cannot serve alcohol overnight, but food will be available for purchase the entire time.
The current record, set by a disc jockey in Pennsylvania, is 33 hours and 8 minutes.
