Can anyone tell me who is the man at every Boston home games, sitting in the behind-home-plate seat year after year? Today he's wearing his red jacket.

According to the ads that run every four minutes on WEEI, his name is, predictably, pronounced "Dennis Drinkwatuh".

Ah, yes ... Giant Glass ...

Their commercial jingle -- 1.800.54.GIANT -- is embedded in many a Bostonian's brain -- TV ad | Radio Ad. ["Who do you call when your windshield is busted?"]

Jesus Christ I've been wondering about that guy for three years. Thanks for asking and answering!

Similarly, though not as visible, there's a guy who has attended every single Arizona Diamondbacks home game, EVER.

Since they're in their 10th season, he's still keeping it strong.

(I bought tickets from him on ebay, nice guy.)

It's actually pretty crazy when you consider he's close to 800 consistent games, especially since baseball tends to hit nasty two-solid week streaks with nary a day or two break in between.

Of course, now with a streak that strong and absolutely 0 exceptions (includes playoff games), I wonder how hard it is to not break the streak for almost anything...

I have a friend who attended every home Saint Paul Saints Game since they started in 93. He used to have a handful of noisemakers (cowbells, turbohorns, triangle, duckcalls, slide whistle.) Every play, he had a noise (strikes=triangle , foul balls=slide whistle, homeruns=turbohorns), It cleared out the section he was in before the bottom of the 9th. People actually cancelled their season tickets because of him, and yet the team owner, Mike Veeck, told him to keep doing it. It was a great act.
