In advance of the Allstate Sugar Bowl between the Alabama Crimson Tide and Oklahoma Sooners, players and coaches from both teams visited New Orleans Children Hospital and 12-year-old patient Gabrielle Mave even gave Alabama head coach, Nick Saban in impromptu manicure.

Here is the video of the special moment courtesy of The Tuscaloosa News:

This might be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen in my life. I think there may even be some Auburn Tigers fans tipping their cap at Saban for doing this.

Who says Saban doesn’t have a heart of gold?

On the outside he has the rough and tough exterior and doesn’t appear to be too personable in his media appearances, but deep down he’s a big softy and you have to love him doing anything to give this child who is going through an incredibly difficult ordeal a day she’ll never forget.

Alabama and Oklahoma play on Thursday night at 7:30 p.m. central time on ESPN.
