They may have lost the Stanley Cup in perhaps the worst minute in Bruins' history, but the team will always have at least one forever loyal fan.
A 77-year-old Boston fan came forward to the Boston Globe to tell the story of how she has free tickets to her favorite team for life -- thanks to Charlie Jacobs, the son of the Bruins owner.
Marge Bishop has been a fixture at TD Garden since she and her husband began attending games in the 1960s. According to the Globe, Bishop was well known around the rink because she gave chocolates to the Zamboni drivers in between periods.
When ticket prices jumped out of her price range in 2004, she was almost forced to give up her seats. That is until Jacobs reportedly jumped in. He asked her to join the season-ticket advisory board, and she stuck with her seats.
But in 2006, when the tickets went from $90 to $150, she made the decision to let go. That is, until Jacobs stepped in, took her on a tour of the arena and gave her an all-access pass so she could come any time.
"It was the most unbelievable gesture," Bishop said, according to the newspaper. "People just don't do things like that."
Shortly after the Bruins fell in the Stanley Cup finals, Bishop decided it was time to tell her story.
"I finally wanted to talk about it because I think people should know,” Bishop told the newspaper. “Charlie Jacobs is an amazing person."
