Watch This Older Alabama Fan Break Down After Getting BCS Tickets For Christmas

Most middle-aged men are extremely hard to buy Christmas presents for. They tend to like things like eating meat and watching their favorite football team win on Sundays. Every once in awhile, however, they can truly get blown away by something beneath the Christmas tree to the point where they act like an excited eight-year-old.

That’s exactly what happened to an Alabama man this holiday season when his son surprised him with tickets to see Alabama play Notre Dame in the upcoming BCS National Championship Game. You can take a watch at his stunned reaction below…

This is the great thing about sports. I’m from Indiana and thus, will be rooting for Notre Dame, but I still know exactly where this dude is coming from when he gets overwhelmed at the thought of going to the game. It’s a great moment, and it’s people like him who truly deserve to be at the game.

I also appreciate the whole trickery angle that went into this gift. Dad was clearly pleased as punch with his Bear Bryant-like hat, but it went from a good Christmas to a great Christmas when he was asked to check the size.

Here’s to hoping this guy has a great time at the game whether Alabama wins or loses.
