BROOKLYN, OH (WOIO) -

We're hearing stories about all kinds of Indian's fans these days, and we found one Brooklyn woman who’s really putting her love of the Tribe on display.

83-year-old Betty Sullivan says she never thought she would live to see a year like this for Cleveland sports teams. She's been a sports fan since she can remember, so she is going all out for the Indians to show her support.

Sullivan's yard is completely spray painted with the Indians' logo, courtesy of her grandson. He did his own lawn in Parma as well, letting the whole family show off their Tribe fever.

Sullivan even says she has a special, lucky vest she wears for games. Her daughter bought it for her 20 years ago at a craft show. Sullivan blames Sunday's loss on the fact that she wasn't wearing it; she definitely plans on wearing it for Game 6.

“It’s wonderful, wonderful," Sullivan said. "I'm glad at my age that I can enjoy this. I can't wait. I wish it was tonight already. I get excited."

You can bet Sullivan will be glued to the television tonight for the game.
