On today’s edition of Up To Speed, we shared a heartwarming surprise for one very loyal football fan.

Don Crisman, a longtime Verizon customer, has attended every Super Bowl since its inception, 56 in a row, with two of his closest friends.

Don, who will soon be 87, says his age and finances were making it hard to keep attending the big game. In fact, he wasn’t expecting to attend this year, but thanks to a pair of tickets donated by Verizon and Visa, the streak continues in Arizona for Super Bowl LVII.

Tell us what you think of Up To Speed.
