Baddie Winkle has been a fan of the Dallas Cowboys "forever," she says. But Sunday, Oct. 8 was the first time the 89-year-old got to attend one of the team's games.
Her seat wasn't too shabby, either -- Winkle got to witness the game from the sideline at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Add in that she got to meet former head coach Barry Switzer and take pictures with the famous Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, and it sounds like an experience on any superfan's bucket list.
In fact, that's exactly what it was. Winkle is currently on a worldwide tour, sponsored by Hotels.com, to cross off all of the items on her #BadAssBucketList, and she's taking all of her 3.2 million Instagram followers on the journey.
That's right: Winkle is a social media celebrity and likely the most fabulous grandma the internet has ever seen. She's previously landed promotional deals with Smirnoff Ice and göt2b hair products. Last year, Winkle even attended the MTV Video Music Awards.
Technically, Winkle's dream was to score a touchdown with a Dallas Cowboy -- god knows they needed one -- but she says watching America's Team play from the field was just as rewarding, even though the game ended in a loss to the Green Bay Packers.
"They played a good game," Winkle said of the Cowboys by phone. "I thought at the very last second that they were going to pull it out, but they couldn't manage. But they'll win the next one, definitely."
Who's Winkle's favorite Dallas Cowboy?
"[Jason] Witten," she said, "and they're all good lookin', too."
Dallas was just one of 10 stops around the globe Winkle is making to accomplish everything on her #BadAssBucketList. When we spoke, she had just landed from a helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. Soon she'll be off to Rio de Janeiro to take a samba class with the locals, Paris to enjoy a performance at the Moulin Rouge, and London to try and land herself a prince at Buckingham Palace.
Before she embarks on the rest of her journey, look at the some of the awesome stuff Winkle has done.
