PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Thursday was a big night for 92-year-old Merle.

The life-long Portland Trail Blazers fan not only got to attend her first game, but she even met her favorite player, Blazers point guard Damian Lillard.

Vital Life Foundation, an organization that helps senior citizens, posted a photo of Merle on Twitter Thursday, saying she was going to her first Blazers game that night.

The tweet included the hashtag #HelpMerleMeetLillard, and the Internet took notice.

Twitter users shared the tweet and just a few hours later, Merle got her wish at the game, where she shook hands and posed for photos with Lillard.

What a guy! Merle's first Blazers game is surely one she won't forget.
