95-Year-Old Grandmother Ready to Cheer on the Panthers Sunday


In this week leading up to Super Bowl 50, there’s always some unique human interest stories, and today’s comes from People Magazine, which talks about a 95-year-old lady rooting for the Panthers. Here’s the story.

A 95-year-old great-grandmother became an unlikely Internet sensation this past fall when a picture of her doing “the dab” – a hip hop dance made famous by star Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton – took the sports world by storm.

Lincolnton, North Carolina, native Mary Ward is “just tickled” by her newfound fame, her great-granddaughter Kylie Carson tells PEOPLE. “She never thought this would happen.”

Now the family is on a mission to try to get the so-called “Dabbin’ Granny” into the Super Bowl 50 stands to support her beloved Carolina Panthers – especially her favorite player.

“She has a big crush on Cam,” Carson says. “We were trying to get her to the Super Bowl. We even thought about borrowing against our business but it just cost too much. She really wants to see the Panthers in the Super Bowl.”
