Check Out The 104-Year-Old Lady Who Attended Her First NBA Game Last Night

Who knew that little old ladies loved the NBA so much?!

Theresa Sanchez has been cheering for the San Antonio Spurs forever. No, really. Forever. The 104-year-old women has been a diehard Spurs fan since 1973 when the team first moved from Dallas to San Antonio. And yet, she's never actually made it out to a Spurs game…until now.

Last night, Sanchez was on hand to watch the Spurs whoop the Portland Trail Blazers 124-89 and clinch the top seed in the Western Conference at the AT&T Center after a volunteer at her nursing home donated five tickets to residents at the home.

"I was so surprised when they told me I was coming," said Sanchez, who wore a Manu Ginobili jersey and a pair of sneakers signed by Ginobili that were given to her when she turned 100 a few years ago. "I never thought I would come to a game, and this year, they're pretty good."

And, the trip was made even more impressive by the fact that Sanchez was thisclose to passing away a couple weeks ago. But, she managed to make enough of a recovery to attend her first game. Pretty cool stuff.
