WHAT ARE “CRUISE MOVES”?

You won’t be sorry you asked. “Cruise moves” are what 85-year-old Betty True calls her dance moves, which she describes as “a bunch of bumping and grinding and that’s all [Betty] knows how to do.”

WHO’S BETTY TRUE?

Betty True is the LA Dodgers’ so called “Rally Granny” who went viral after dancing and flashing a crowd of Dodgers fans during a July 8 game against the KC Royals. “I figured well I’ll just really give them a treat and just flash ’em,” True said.

WHY ARE YOU TELLING ME THIS?

One word: LIFE, and True is living it with all she has.

From the woman who quips “I tell everybody that I supplement my Social Security with pole dancing,” True’s love story is both heartfelt and inspiring. Starting each day with her husband drinking a cocktail, a kiss and a toast to squeeze every ounce out of life, they did just that until Mark died at 83. But True kept on living, marching to the beat of her own drum, and leaving a little joy along the way.

Oh hey, it’s Thursday. Stop your whining. Grab a cocktail, cheers a friend, kiss a loved one and go out and do something. That’s what Betty True would do.
