If I had even the slightest of computer skills and was able to construct one of those Good Guy Greg memes, this seems like a fitting situation.

Two Seattle Seahawks fans, Nicole Hill and Sarah Agerup, had their Super Bowl tickets stolen at San Francisco International Airport. The friends were interviewed about their plight on the CBS 2 News Friday evening, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell just so happened to be watching the broadcast. Moved by their bad luck, Goodell pulled some strings — I guess he has, like, connections or something — and ordered new tickets for the two women.

The whole process, from Hill and Agerup being interviewed to the call from the NFL, took less than an hour. (Or, as it’s called on Super Bowl Sunday, the amount of time equivalent to one commercial break.)

While it’s easy to pile on Roger Goodell for his flaws, even the most jaded of cynics have to admit, perhaps begrudgingly, that buying replacement tickets was a nice gesture on his part.
