Wally Clark, also know as Wildcat Wally, began his three week-long campout Sept. 27, 1997 in front of Memorial Coleseum for tickets to UK basketball's Midnight Madness. Clark had his streak of campouts end at 18 years when he was a no-show in 2010 because of health problems. He had been first in line for Madness tickets several times. One year, he camped out for 39 days to make sure he was first in line. Photo by Sam Haverstick
