Stacey & Mike's Happy News: 2 Vets Attend Every Super Bowl Since It Began

Thanks to Jerome in Vancouver for sharing this one with us.

Two U.S. veterans have each attended every Super Bowl game ever since it started back on Jan. 15, 1967. (It wasn't until 1969 that the AFL-NFL playoff game was dubbed the Super Bowl.)

U.S. veterans Sylvan Schefler served in the U.S. Army and Harvey Rothenberg served in the U.S. Navy, and used to hang out at a country club when the NFL invited them to that first game.

The group eventually became five veterans and they called themselves "The Super Bowl Five", but they lost one of their members recently, and two of the other men were unable to attend this year, but they're hoping to have them in attendance next year. 

Sylvan said that the NFL knows about their group and were particularly generous back at Super Bowl 50. That year, the veterans were honored with first-class tickets, limo service.
