A 101-year-old St. Louis Blues fan had a dream come true when she saw the Stanley Cup up close Tuesday.

Caroline Laska got to touch the trophy after friends helped her gain admittance to a season ticket holder event, KSDK-TV reported.

"I prayed for it, but I never believed (it) would happen," Laska told the station. "And it was like magic just touching that Cup."

Laska also met Blues owner Tom Stillman and general manager Doug Armstrong at the event, held at the Stifel Theatre in St. Louis.

It took the Blues 51 seasons to win the Cup for the first time when they defeated the Boston Bruins in the Stanley Cup Final in June, but Laska said she expects more championships to come.

"This is just the beginning," she said. "Now they know what it tastes like, so they want more of it."
