'We played 300+ games together and she actually ended up becoming a good friend of mine.

"One night, a few months ago, they started a conversation about who their best friends were, and Spencer said, 'My best friend is an 80-year-old white woman who lives in a retirement community in Florida, ' and I said, 'What?,'" the Rev. Butler told The Root.

The pair has played over 300 games and formed a long-distance bond.
