ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A 67-year-old retired engineer has plans to watch Michigan's football team play in person for the 500th straight time Saturday at Ohio State.
Bob MacLean says he has attended every game the Wolverines have played from their 1971 game against rival Ohio State through their last one against Iowa.
MacLean says he had dinner plans Friday night in Columbus, Ohio, before getting a night of rest for the milestone matchup.
The dedicated fan says there's a standing joke that his friend, Mike Truax, would get him out of the hospital to keep the streak alive even if he was in a coma and had to be strapped to a board.
