Sweetie is serious about her basketball and her players-now looks like she'll get to a Warriors game next week pic.twitter.com/pONEwUu5dh— carolyn tyler (@ctylerabc7) May 29, 2015
Why does this centenarian Warriors fan who goes by Sweetie love the team so much? "They seem like a family," she tells ABC7."They get together and they play some ball, oohhh."
With the Dubs headed to the NBA Finals next week (!!!), Sweetie was hoping she might score some special treatment from the team. All Warriors fans have been waiting for some time, but she's certainly earned her seat.
"I'm happy for all of our fans and especially Sweetie," Coach Steve Kerr gave her a shout after Wednesday's big win. "If you're watching out there, congrats."
Before Sweetie learned she'd received an invitation she was rather cheeky. "Here I am, waiting," she said, closing her eyes for a long moment.
Sweetie turns 106 on June 12.
