TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) – Matt Pave can talk all day about Seminoles. Up, down, everyone. He said the competition between FSU and Miami was special.
Pave knows Florida State football; he hasn’t missed an FSU-Miami game since 1989. He says the competition is greater than that of FSU-Florida.
“To get over the hump and get the national championships, and all over the place, the national championships are in the Orange Bowl. So all Miami fans have to see us come to town to play in Nebraska, “he said.
But not just Miami-Florida State: Pave has been playing games hot since 1989.
His record currently stands at 315 games.
“We had a miserable flight,” said Pave. “We were struck by lightning. Land with foam and everything at the Orlando airport. I watched the game on Jacksonville Beach with several people I know. I half jokingly said, ‘I won’t miss another match. I can’t watch this game on TV. ” ‘
The beating was almost over when the mother became ill in 2006, but the mother had one dying wish.
“My mom was basically on her deathbed, and I was with her and my mom was like, ‘Go to the game. Go to the game. ‘And he was like,’ Don’t bring me the t-shirt because I won’t have time to wear it, ‘”he recalls.
Pave said the only thing that could break it was if his father got sick.
“He called me and he coughed and I was like, ‘Are you all right?’ She was like, ‘I’m fine. I am doing fine. Watch how many Jacks you drank at the game, call your parents the next day. “
Pave estimated the cost of his trip north at three-quarters of a million dollars.
“Here’s $ 6,000 for my Gold Head for my parking lot, my backyard in Tallahassee,” he said. “So between $ 25,000- $ 30,000 a year. So I can live large instead of the tiny one-bedroom apartment in Key West.
Of course, Pave will be at Hard Rock Stadium on Saturday.
He said his biggest concern was the Florida State game at Norte Dame, because Ireland doesn’t allow fans.
He said he’s trying to reach out to professors and anyone he knows to keep the line alive.
