    Super Cowboys fans in Arlington's Greenfield Senior Living Center got the Christmas surprise of a lifetime Monday night.

    NBC 5 introduced you to the "Greenfield Girls" a couple weeks ago. They are a group of grannies who have been dedicated to the Silver and Blue longer than most have been alive.

    And there is no shame in their game.

    "We tell them what to do! They don't always listen," said 89-year-old Jean Gibson. "We fuss at them, but the next game we're right there with them again."

    The first story we did was shared so many times that even one of the Cowboys players saw it – and decided to surprise the ladies with a Christmas party.

    Cowboys safety Kavon Frazier showed up to screaming 70-, 80-, and 90-year-old fans he'll never forget.

    "I just wanted to show them some love, because they show us love every Sunday or Monday, whatever day we play," Frazier said. "I want to show them my appreciation."

    Frazier mixed and mingled with the ladies, signing autographs on shirts and even on a walker.

    But they're women, after all, so it's not always all about sports. For Jo Dodson, there's just something about a football players' pants.

    "Really good nice booties!" she said, laughing.

    If you say so, Jo!
