Local sports fan Hakan Andersson got to meet a legend last month, when he met BC Lions’ coach Wally Buono at a condo at Parksville, where his daughter works.

With football his favourite sport and the BC Lions his favourite team, Andersson said that he’s loved the team for a long time.

“For over 40 years. They’ve had their ups and their downs over the years,” he said.

The two had much to discuss; football mainly, of course.
