Alabama Fan Surprised With Tickets To National Championship Game On Christmas (Video)


While we were with our families over the holiday, we were all reminded about just how special the time with our loved ones can be. Christmas gives us an opportunity to give back to those around us for what they’ve done and one Alabama family had a special moment that they were lucky enough to capture on tape.

An Alabama Crimson Tide fan opened up his gift — a fedora like the one Bear Bryant used to wear. The ‘Bama fan was ecstatic over the gift he received from his son, but it only got better.

His son asked what size the hat was so that the father could see the rest of his present.

When the father looked inside his hat, he was overcome with joyous tears. Inside the hat were tickets to the BCS National Championship game between Alabama and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, which takes place on January 7th in Miami.

It’s a great moment to see on video and it’s one that I wanted to share with all of the readers. Hopefully your holidays were filled with this same kind of love and joy. Check out the video:
