Super Bowl super fan can’t stop because Patriots won’t stop

KENNEBUNK, Maine (AP) — One of the handful of fans who has seen every single Super Bowl is keeping the streak alive as he cheers for his New England Patriots.

Donald Crisman, of Kennebunk, Maine, says he’s happy to feel well enough to go to Atlanta. The 82-year-old football fan says a bout of ulcerative colitis caused him to lose 30 pounds and landed him in the hospital. But just like his beloved Patriots battled back from setbacks, so did Crisman.

That means he’s in Atlanta for his 53rd consecutive Super Bowl.

This one is all the more special because the Patriots are playing.

He tells the Portland Press Herald he didn’t think the Patriots would make it this far.
