BOSTON (WHDH) — Mary Lee has been a Celtics fan for more than half her life, and considering she just turned 100, she’s a true superfan — even though she’s never been to a game.
Lee first became interested in the Celtics when they moved to Dorchester in 1958, and their home is filled with shirts, pennants and other memorabilia. She hasn’t visited the garden, but she tapes every game to watch on TV.
“I’m a real Celtics fan, you know. I don’t want to miss any of the games,” Lee said. “I just love my Celtic boys.”
And she watched last week as the Celtics made their incredible comeback against the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the Finals and loudly cheered for her team.
“The game was good and juicy,” laughed Lee. “In that 4th quarter … I was relaxed. I had to sit up for the 4th quarter because I had to yell at them, ‘Oh no, oh no, don’t give the game away.'”
Lee turned 100 when the Celtics won the Eastern Conference championship against the Miami Heat and said winning the Finals would be the best birthday present she could ask for.
“If they have to go to 7, let them go to 7. But they can take them in 6, I’ll take the one baby. I’ll take that,” Lee said.
