Orchard Park, NY (WKBW) - Sunday's loss against the Tennessee Titans was tough for the Bills -- but fans across Western New York still support their team.

One man may be the biggest fan of all! Sunday, he attended his 300th consecutive Bills game.

Ken Johnson has been to every single Bills game since the 1994 season opener.

In the last 18 years, he has formed a following or supporters who cannot get enough of his team.

Ken, known as "Pinto" by his fellow fans, scream "let's go Buffalo!" while tailgating before the game begins.

Ken explains "wherever the Bills are, that's where I am."

He's not kidding. Ken has been to every single game since a 23-to-3 blowout against the Jets back on September 4th, 1994, at then Rich Stadium.

As a software engineer, he manages to find time for work -- even working business trips around the games.

"Last weekend I went to San Francisco," Ken explains. "I worked the whole week out of a laptop, and then I went to Phoenix and drove back."

Home, away or playoffs -- it doesn't matter. Ken makes sure he's there no matter how the Bills are doing.

He recalls "I seen the 90's, the glory years, and then we took a dip."

Nowadays, Ken says "A good Bills fan has to be in a constant state of denial. But we will be back you know."

Making 300 games was never a goal for Ken. He originally wanted to make one entire season.

The idea was "16 games in a row, I exceeded the expectations and I'm still rolling."

Now he's known not just for being an incredible fan, but having one of the best tailgate parties at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

In the process he's made many new friends.

One fan, known as Captain Buffalo, says "I like what I saw. Next week I creeped a little closer, moved in. Second week, third in I moved on. I finally introduced myself and I said I like this, I want to be a part of this."

Ken's team spirit isn't what touches people the most -- it's his good hearted nature.

Friend Joanie Dekoker says "If people don't have tickets to the game, he'll give them tickets. He always has food, everyone's welcome."

Ken is married, and Joanie says she doesn't know how the family does it -- but it's all in fun.

Ken doesn't plan to stop attending games anytime soon -- he's having too much fun.
