Anyway, this proud grandmother is the new star of the Philadelphia Flyers, having received a team jersey from her grandson, a new right winger for that group.

Here's the video, which may fill your eyes with water:

"She went viral pretty quickly. She's been my number one supporter for a long time, probably since I was born. She deserves all the credit and I think she gave me my athletic ability. I didn't think it would go as viral as it has. She deserves it all." - Cam Atkinson

"Because they put the names on the back and I wanted to show it to Cam. This is the jersey he gave me. I wanted to skate to Cam. But my family says no!" -Grandma Marge
