It reminded me of the guy who would occasionally get featured on BCTV (or CBC) back in the 80's and early 90's as the Canucks' Biggest Superfan. The guy was IIRC, a bit "special", and his family were season ticket holders from year one. He lived in their basement surrounded by memorabilia and had either been to, watched or listened to every single game in franchise history (up to that point).

Remember him? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
You're thinking of Andrew Castell, this guy:



And what's really sad is that according to this article, written during the 2011 finals, he stopped being a fan of the team during the Keenan era and never came back.

That's actually kind of sad.
