Son Surprises Dad with NFL Tickets [VIDEO]
You'd think a lifelongfan getting a signed jersey would be the highlight of his day.
This video was posted on YouTube by a son whose father had never seen his favorite team, the Cincinnati Bengals, play in person. He wanted to change that.
After giving his dad a Bengals hat, and the Dalton jersey, he springs the big surprise: Game tickets, plane tickets and a hotel room to see the Bengals play the Jets on Oct. 27. His family worked on the surprise, making sure he had the Monday after the game off. The father, touched by the gesture, breaks down in tears. The best moment comes at about 4:20 into the video, when he tells his son he's never even held Bengals tickets before.
Now I remember my first Dallas Cowboys game it was in Baltimore against the Ravens when I was sophomore in high school. Now the Cowboys lost 10-30 that day, but I was just in awe of being in a NFL stadium. Now growing up in Baltimore I had plenty of opportunities to go to NFL games, but I would be damned if my first NFL game was not a Cowboys game.
Well later that year my grandfather surprised me with tickets to the Redskins versus Cowboys game in Texas Stadium. Now I count this as my first game since it was in the greatest NFL stadium ever built. We got there at five in the morning to tailgate, hung out with some diehard Cowboys and most importantly the Cowboys won the game. I was able to find the game winning fourth quarter touchdown pass. Just imagine me standing up about to pass out from excitement.
