    Michigan (WNEM) — Like many people throughout the state, Kenneth Bauer is a diehard Michigan fan. His love for the Wolverines began when he was a young boy.

The 80-year-old from St. Louis continued to attend a few games here and there with family and friends until the early seventies, when he decided to make a bigger commitment.

He started getting season tickets in 1971, and has not missed a home game since then.

Bauer doesn’t go alone. He’ll bring his wife, other family members, or friends to games. He never lets his guests pay for their seats.

Bauer says going to the games is fun, but it wouldn’t be the same without sharing the experience with the people he cares about most.
