81-year-old Don Crisman of Kennebunk, Maine already has his tickets to the Superbowl this year. It will be his 52nd, NECN reports.

Crisman, a die-hard Patriots fan and one of 3 people worldwide who can claim perfect attendance to the Big Game, has a basement stuffed with memorabilia. He figured he'd retire his tradition after 50, but when his Pats got in, he said, "all bets are off." He reflects on the 51st game as the best one yet and is confident that they'll pull it off again this year, according to NECN.

Perhaps my favorite parts of Don's recap of his experiences is that he paid just $12 to attend the first game, and that he thanks his wife for putting up with him.
