Grandmother attempts to invade pitch at Portuguese match, has a grand time

Maritimo played Braga to a 2-2 draw in their final match before the winter break last week. A bit of trouble flared up when a group of Braga supporters attempted to invade the pitch. The most dangerous member of this group was an older woman who clearly meant business.

When the stewards stopped her progress and shoved her back towards the stands, she gave them a stern telling off before laughing on her way back to her seat.

Hopefully we can all be a little more like the pitch invading grandma in 2014.

UPDATE: Thanks to @pervetastic, we now know that this woman has a Facebook fan page where she has been dubbed "Melinha the Gverreira" (Melinha the Warrior). Here's a video of her dancing in the stands after a 2011 match in Kiev and saying what sounds like, "Bye bye, England! Thank you!" No one parties harder than Melinha.
