Atkinsons grandmother rides Zamboni at his first game with Flyers


Grandma Marge wasn’t missing this game.

Cam Atkinson had a very special fan in attendance for his first game with the Philadelphia Flyers: his grandmother.

And not only did she root on her grandson, in the first game of his NHL career that was not in a Columbus Blue Jackets uniform, she rode the Zamboni between periods.

Judging by social media, Grandma Marge was a big hit. She wore a No. 89 orange home jersey, but backward, to display the Atkinson name across the front, as she is known to do.

Grandma Marge, you may remember, gained internet stardom after she proudly displayed the jersey her grandson sent he following the trade.

Atkinson, of course, had to show out for the woman he calls “my number one fan,” scoring a goal in the second period.
