When Helen Moser was born the NHL was still seven years away from being founded. It wasn’t until 1967 -- over 40 years after Moser immigrated to the United States from Germany -- that the Philadelphia Flyers entered the league and that she began following the sport and rooting for her hometown team.

On Wednesday, Moser celebrated her 104th birthday with friends and family at the Wesley Enhanced Living retirement community in Upper Moreland, Pennsylvania. It wasn’t just any celebration. The party was Flyers-themed, with Moser and guests rocking sweaters of her favorite team.

At one point during the party a special guest arrived: Bob “The Hound” Kelly, who played 10 years with the Flyers and was a member of their two Stanley Cup-winning teams in 1974 and 1975. Kelly delivered a cake and presented Moser with a Flyers jersey featuring her name and the number 104 on the back. 

Kelly then allowed Moser to try on one of his Stanley Cup rings, which moved her to tears:

In May, Moser told the Bucks County Courier Times that she began following the sport because of its resemblance to soccer, which she grew up following. She also loves the Flyers so much that during a playoff game against the New York Rangers this past spring, she shooed away aides who were coming to help her shower. 

Now that’s dedication to your team.
