TAMPA, Fla. — Tom Henschel (79), Don Crisman (84), and Gregory Eaton (81) have never missed a Super Bowl, ever. They are all part of the "Never Miss A Super Bowl Club."

"It’s an expensive hobby," said Crisman.

The men have been to all 54 Super Bowls and are in Tampa this week for Super Bowl LV.

The tradition started in 1967 when tickets were only $12 for the big game.

Crisman says a lot has changed since then.

"My wife attended 28 of them, then it became a little expensive to bring her along," said Crisman.

Eaton traveled from Lansing, MI for his 55th Super Bowl trip.

"It brings people together. Catholics, Jewish, blacks, whites. Sports brings people together and that’s what America is about," said Eaton.

Some of the members have passed on, But the tradition lives on with Super Bowl LV.
