A 103-year-old Red Sox fan who beat COVID-19 celebrated by chugging a Bud Light. Jennie Stejna, a resident of a Wilbraham, Massachusetts nursing home, tested positive for the virus earlier this month. Things got so bad at one point that her family members were summoned to say their final goodbyes, says Stejna’s grandson, Adam Gunn.
“She’s feisty and tenacious,” her grandson, Dave Stejna of Easton, Mass., tells The Post. “She is legendary in so many different ways. She speaks her mind and doesn’t put up with anything.” Glad you’re recovering well Jennie! #BeersToThat https://t.co/7Z8TXhk6cd

To celebrate, her family caught her on video cracking open a beer and downing it. When asked how she liked it, Stejna replied, “It’s cold.” Do you want to live to 103? Will the average life expectancy keep getting longer as time goes on, or will it have to level off at some point?
