Visa Commercial Star Unable To Attend Super Bowl

DALLAS – After months of hearing about the “Never Missed A Super Bowl Club,” the streak is coming to an end.

Robert Cook of Brown Deer, Wis., one of the four men featured in the Visa commercial, is hospitalized and has sent his two daughters to Arlington, Texas, instead. They have enlarged a photo of their dad and attached it to a stick so they could hold it up at the game.

(Personally, I would hate to sit behind those two at the game.)

The 79-year-old was prepared to leave on Thursday but became weak and ended up in the hospital. Cook had attended every Super Bowl since 1967.
