I like to think that when it comes to college football I’m an enthusiast, but I’ve got nothing on this guy.
… By 1976, Baker decided he was ready to join the Terps on the road. He hasn’t missed a game since.
That means he traveled to Birmingham in 1977, landing in Atlanta the day of the game, driving to the stadium and back, and sitting up in the airport all night. It means he traveled to Clemson the day after Hurricane Hugo made landfall in 1989, enduring repeated cancellations and finally renting two cars to drive back to Maryland. It means he went to bowl games in El Paso and Orlando, Honolulu and Shreveport, Pontiac and Boise.
That’s 34 years of Maryland football, in case you’re counting. A long stretch of dark moments in that time, but at least he saw this gem.
That’s the kind of stuff that keeps you coming back.
